Using timesheets to monitor TOIL (Time Off In Lieu)

I have searched Help and the Community and can't find an answer specifically relating to this...  I have 6 employees, 5 of whom are paid a standard number of hours per fortnight and one whose hours I manually adjust to match his actual hours worked.  The 5 employees are keeping Excel spreadsheets to show any excess hours worked so that they can be taken as TOIL later.  Currently I have 'Time in Lieu' as a leave category but it is not tracked.  I am hoping to set up timesheets in QB Payroll (KeyPay) to enable them to log their actual hours via the Employee Portal, be paid standard hours and the remainder to carry over to be used as 'Time In Lieu taken' at a later date.  

 

I am the Master Admin and set myself up as a 'Time Tracker' user to see if that would work, but that seems to be tracking time against jobs, classes and customers etc. and doesn't give the option to choose things like annual leave, sick leave or TOIL because they are hours actually worked rather than hours paid, so I don't think that is the way to go.

 

Can someone confirm if what I want to do is possible and if so how I should go about it?  And is there then a report I can produce for my manager to show how much TOIL people are accumulating?  Plus I would need to know where to go to tick all the relevant boxes to get this working properly.

 

Thanks for any advice you can give!

Hi alisoncplatt-

 

In this case, I recommend calling in to our team for a walk through on setting all this up. There are be a few items to configure: the leave category, pay category, and work type in order to set TOIL to accrue and track properly. 

 

Additionally, our team can suggest a few time savers on; ex: timesheeting, such as using TSheets for tracking or sharing the access to the employee portal so your employees are able to submit their own timesheets to you for approval. 

 

Give us a call at 1800 046 038.
