Reallocate Timecard Entry Hours for an Employee

Objective

To reallocate timecard entry hours for an employee. 

Background

Users with 'Standard' level permissions or higher to the company's Timesheets tool can split submitted time on unapproved timecards into multiple timecard entries containing updated project or payroll information. For example, you can split a timecard entry for 10 hours of Regular Time into 8 hours of Regular Time and 2 hours of Overtime to accurately reflect how a worker spent their day.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • 'Standard' level permissions or higher on the Company Timesheets tool.
  • Additional Information:
    • To reallocate time into multiple entries, the sum of each entry must equal the total hours of the original timecard.

Steps

  1. Navigate to the company's Timesheets tool.
  2. Locate the timecard entry for the employee whose time you want to split.
    Note: Click the vertical ellipsis icon-ellipsis-options-menu.png and mark the checkboxes to show, hide or reorder columns.
  3. Click the Split Timecard  icon on the timecard entry.
  4. In the 'Split Time for Employee Name & Date' window, do the following:
    • For project timecards using the 'Total Hours' entry method, enter a smaller number of hours in the Total Time value column on the first timecard entry.  Then enter the balance in the next timecard entry (or create multiple timecard entries to reallocate the balance). Your timecard entries must add up to the total number of hours of the original timecard entry. When finished, click Save
    • For project timecards configured to use the 'Start Time/Stop Time' entry method, change the values in the Start Time and Stop Time columns on the first timecard entry.  Then enter the balance in the next timecard entry (or create multiple timecard entries to reallocate the balance). Your timecard entries must add up to the total number of hours of the original timecard entry in the Total Time column. When finished, click Save.  
  5. Reallocate the original and new timecard entries as needed using the following criteria:
    • Project:  Select the appropriate project to reallocate the hours for each timecard entry.
    • Sub Job: Select the appropriate sub job to reallocate the hours for each timecard entry.
      To add a sub job to a project, see Add a Sub Job to a Procore Project.
    • Cost Code: Select the appropriate cost code to reallocate the hours for each timecard entry.
      To add cost codes to a project, see Add and Edit Project Cost Codes.
    • Time Type: Select the appropriate time type to reallocate the hours for each timecard entry. Time types can be created in the Company level Timecard tool (see Add a Custom Time Type) or the Company level Timesheets tool (see 'Manage Time Types' in Configure Advanced Settings: Company Level Timesheets). 
  6. Click Save.
