Overriding a time entry is performed by an Approver to correct a mistake on a time sheet or leave report when an employee cannot make the correction (e.g. not enough time or no internet access). The two most common types of time entry errors are:
- incorrect hours entered into a correct earnings type
- correct hours entered into an incorrect earnings type
Once an employee submits a time sheet or leave report, the status of the document changes to Pending. A time sheet or leave report must have Pending status before an Approver can override a time entry and make a correction to it. All corrections must be completed and time sheets approved before 11:59pm approval deadlines. See Approver Actions by Transaction Status for more information.
