Customizing the Time Card Signature Text

There are a number of reasons to have employees manually sign their timecards at the end of each pay period. The requirements for proper acknowledgement vary widely by state and industry. In some cases, only a signature is needed, while other situations require specific wording about worked time, breaks, lunches, and schedule.
To facilitate these varied needs, Virtual TimeClock Pro and Network Editions include the ability to easily customize your timecard report signature text. While the default text we provide is a great starting point, your legal, HR, or tax professional will often have helpful suggestions for language more appropriate for your particular business.
Here’s how to easily modify the timecard signature text:
In Virtual TimeClock Pro or Pro Client
  • Select Turn Administration On… in the File menu
  • Select Report Writer from the Configure Menu
  • Select the name of your employee timecard report (i.e. Timecard Detail)
  • Click Report Options in the Report Writer configuration window (shown below)
  • Click Signature Text in the Report Options window (shown below), this will open the text editor
  • Edit the signature text to the desired wording
  • Click Ok. This will close the text editor
  • Click Save in the Report Options window
Your new signature text is now saved. Verify the text and how it will look by clicking Preview Report icon in the Report Writer toolbar.
