How To: Submit a Prelim Timecard

Skip the wait. Submit a preliminary timecard before your digital start paperwork is fully approved.

How To: Submit a Prelim Timecard

Step 1: Click the green plus button and then select TIMECARD.

Step 2: Select the employee, update the week ending date, and click CREATE.


“Required documents” include:

  • I-9 form
  • W-4 form
  • Start Form
  • Required Custom Forms *


Step 3: Complete the required fields and click SAVE.

Tip: Prelim timecards will automatically convert to timecards and enter the timecard approval process once all required start work documents are fully approved. 

Caution: If the timecard owner has not submitted all required state labor forms or state tax documents by the time a prelim timecard is converted, they will be notified via email and will be required to submit the converted timecard, which will prompt them to fill out missing forms.
