To start using time keeping, an Admin for your organization must do the initial set up. In settings, you will find a time keeping setting called ‘Time keeping Set up.’ Once you fill out and save this information, you will be able to move forward with time keeping related items. **Please Note** Make sure these are filled out correctly the first time, because once these are set, they cannot be changed
Each item here is very important to the way you want to use time keeping for your company.
Start date- This is the date that you want time keeping to be available. Most users will set this as the first date they want to use time keeping within Crelate, but there are situations where you may want to have the start date in the past (not common)
Pay period cadence- This cadence is how often time cards are due. Most companies will use weekly
Start day of the week- This is the first day of the week that you want to record time against
Time zone – This is the time zone that your company is in. This time zone will affect things like due dates/times and notifications for time cards that are due or past due
Time Entry Type- You can choose if you want to capture time in a punch in punch out format, or straight time. PIPO time accounts for breaks, where straight time is 1 hour value per day.
