Online Payroll Time Reporting Overview

There are two main functions within Payroll time reporting that departmental preparers will use in order to record time for employees and process corrections. The function codes (IDTC and EDAT) can be found on the On-line Applications Main Menu under the heading of Payroll Time Reporting.

Department Time Collection

The function IDTC-Department Time Collection is the main function that will be used to enter time for employees. IDTC allows the department to produce a checklist of all employees who are due to be paid for a certain pay period and also allows departmental preparers to access a roster in order to enter the hours an employee worked or used leave. In order for an employee’s record to be listed on the check list or the roster, the information on the EDB must match the selection criteria entered on the Time Collection Criteria Screen and the Time Reporting code on the employee’s record must indicate that the employee is paid via on-line time reporting. The two time codes that indicate on-line time reporting are "R" which indicates that the employee is paid on an exception time basis (generally those employees paid on Sub account 1 or 0) via on-line time reporting and "Z" which indicates that the employee is paid on a positive time basis via on-line time reporting.

Most employees on campus will be paid via on-line time reporting. There are some units at UCLA that submit pay transactions on a tape or through a line transfer. The time codes on the EDB for these employees may be "P" or "R". Employee records which have a time code of "P" on the EDB will NOT be displayed on the roster or checklist. If an employee name is not displayed on the check list or roster, EDB Inquiry screens should be reviewed to make sure the employee’s record matches the selection criteria and the time code on the record is either "R" or "Z". If a correction needs to be made to the information on the EDB, consult with the EDB preparer and process the correction (or have the EDB preparer process it). Corrections/changes to the EDB will not be reflected immediately on the roster -- it will take until the next day for a change to the EDB to reflect on the roster.

Department Adjustment Transaction Menu

The function EDAT-Department Adjustment Transaction menu will be accessed in order to process corrections or adjustments to employees’ pay records. Corrections can be made for additional pay, late pay, reductions in pay, rate adjustments, leave usage, leave balances, and incorrect FAUs using the functions listed on the EDAT menu. Transactions can be entered at any time as long as they are entered by the deadline to process the transaction for a particular payday. The EDAT menu can also be used to process special check requests.

Note: You may come across a printed version of this manual in your office or department. This on-line version has been updated substantially since the printed manual was last produced and it reflects more current policies and procedures. Any remaining copies of the printed version of the manual are obsolete and should be discarded.
