The data flows through the model from left to right.

1 - Timesheet data must be created

  • Employees clocking their hours worked
  • Generated from the roster

  • There are many ways for your employees to clock their worked hours, visit the Clocking Hours guide to consider your options.

    2 - There are two options to editing timesheets

  • Edit timesheet page
  • Timesheet vs roster page

  • The timesheet vs roster page let you compare the employees roster to their timesheet data, review the timesheet vs roster guide for more details.

    3 - Payroll from timesheet

    A pay run can be done straight from the employees timesheet data.

    This includes calculating overtime, awards, deductions, expenses, super, salary sacrifices, extra earning, employees on salary, etc.

    This is the most complicated step in the Microkeeper system, we highly recommend revising all areas of the payroll guides.

    This is a brief explanation of the timesheet process, we recommend reviewing all pages under the timesheet guide for a better understanding of this process.
