Add Leave Type To Timecard Summary

The Timecard Detail report separates paid leave hours into its own column and includes a leave summary at the end of the report so it's easy to tell what type of leave was used. This is important if you report leave to your payroll processor based on different leave categories. The Timecard Detail report is great for reviewing and correcting employee hours, or for employees to print out and sign as a record that the hours are an accurate record of time worked during the payroll period. But it might be a little busy to use for entering hours directly into your payroll software or to send over to your accountant. That's where the Timecard Summary report comes in. It makes a great payroll report because it includes a one line summary for each employee separating regular hours, overtime hours, and any paid leave hours. However, you may need to have the leave hours further broken down by leave type. If so, you'll need to turn on the Leave Summary option for the report. Here's how to do it.

  1. Turn on administration and run the Timecard Summary report by clicking My Reports on the administrative toolbar.
  2. Now click Report Settings in the report preview toolbar.
  3. Click Report Options.
  4. Check the Leave Summary box in the Summary Totals section.
Now your Timecard Summary report will list each leave type as a separate subtotal.
