All staff need to know how to:

  • Manage their time off
    • View balances
    • Submit a request for time 
    • Cancel a request
    • Correct time off 

Monthly staff do not submit a timesheet.

Staff who are paid weekly need to know how to submit timesheets, which differs slightly depending if you are (choose below):

  • Non-exempt administrative
  • Union staff have a 40-hour work week.
    • Campus Police work a staggered schedule.
    • College Club uses smaller time increments in reporting (Workday does 15 minute increments)
    • AVI staff use check-in/check-out on iPads in their kitchens.
