How do I enter timesheets for an individual day?

Your employer may ask you to enter timesheets.

As an employee, log in to Employment Hero and go to:

Timesheets > My Timesheets

Click Add in Timesheet Entries page to create a new timesheet.

Employment Hero is currently supporting two types of timesheet logging for daily entries: Start and end times and Daily hours. Depending on which type your company is using, you need to fill the corresponding fields and lodge your timesheet.  

Start and end times

  • Date -- the date for this timesheet.
  • Start time and End time fields -- when the work started and ended.
  • Cost Centre -- where the timesheet related cost happened
  • Work Type -- an additional rule to set up against timesheets regarding an individuals pay conditions (only applicable for managed and DIY payroll users).
  • Breaks -- if you had an unpaid break during the day, such as a meal break, click Add Break to record it. Enter the time that you were on break in the same way as you did before. For example, you had a 30 minute break from 11am until 11:30am. Your break "Start time" would be 11:00AM and your break "End time" would be 11:30AM.

Daily Hours

  • Date -- the date for this timesheet entry.
  • Hours worked -- the number of hours and minutes to be lodged in this entry
  • Cost Centre -- where the timesheet related cost happened
  • Work Type: an additional rule to set up against timesheets regarding an individuals pay conditions (only applicable for managed and DIY payroll users).
  • Comments -- add comments for this entry.

Finally, click Save to submit the timesheet.  Your employer will be notified via email and will be able to approve or decline this timesheet entry. Until then it is marked as "Pending".

Notes on cost centre

  • The cost centre field will populate with the employee's default cost centre (if applicable).
  • For instances where the employee's default cost centre has been disabled, employees will be provided the prompt to 'select a cost centre'.  
  • For managed payroll users, when an admin/manager/user is creating a timesheet on behalf of an employee and the employee does not have a default cost centre or their default cost centre has been disabled, there will be message prompting the user to update the employee's default cost centre for payroll purposes.

Notes on work type

  • Employees will only be able to select the work types that are assigned to them.
  • Work types may be auto-assigned based on an employee's employment type (i.e. Work types may appear and/or disappear as the employee's employment type changes).

 

In you are an admin or owner of the company and would like to choose a different logging option, please refer to article Timesheet settings for details.
