What is my Supervisor Dashboard?

The home screen in EmpCenter is called the Dashboard. From the Dashboard you can access timesheet approval, reports, time off requests, and delegation:

Main Navigation links:

At the top of the Dashboard are several links; you will see these same links throughout EmpCenter:

  • Home: use this link to return to the Dashboard from anywhere in the system.
  • Help: use this link to open the online help documentation in a new window.
  • Log Off: use this link to sign off of EmpCenter.

The supervisor dashboard includes options for reviewing your employee’s time as well as options to access your own time entry.  Please see the appropriate policy profile user guide for more information on using the employee options.

Time Entry links:

Note: if you do not see all the options, expand the list by clicking on the arrow at the bottom of the section.

  • Enter My Hours: access your timesheet to enter hours, correct entries, and submit your timesheet to your supervisor for approval.
  • Edit Employee Time: access your employees’ timesheets to view or edit their time; you will see any timesheet exceptions for your employees in the Exceptions box. 
  • Edit Time for Groups: make edits to multiple employee timesheets at once.

Schedules links:
