This article explains how to enter time in Colleague Self Service for employees that do not work shift differential.


Getting Started

  • Click on the Time Entry button

  • Choose the appropriate POSITION and WEEK of the pay period to enter time or view previous entries

In the image below, at the upper left corner you can see the Position ID and Title, and under those fields, your supervisor’s name and title, a summary of the hours entered and the status of the time card, i.e., unsubmitted.  

On the upper right side is the Save button, you can use to save, but the time card will also automatically save and show you the time it was saved.  You can click on the View Leave Balances to see your leave balances.   

You can use the arrows to navigate between the time card weeks, depending which week you are currently on, go forward or backward.  

If you have a work schedule the hours are shown across the top of the time card.   

Entering Regular Work Time

If you see Work Schedule and you worked a normal week, you can simply click "Apply" and it will automatically fill out your time card with the hours you are scheduled to work.  

If you do not see Work Schedule, enter in the total number of hours you worked each day in the "Regular" box for each day you worked.


  • You can also Apply the Work Schedule and adjust regular hours for days that you did not work your regular schedule.
  • Time sheets are automatically saved as you adjust them but you can edit the time card anytime until it is approved by your supervisor.
  • Hours entered are summarized at the bottom of the screen.
  • Weekly overtime hours are calculated automatically by the system so any hours over your normal schedule will be calculated at the overtime rate.
  • See below for instructions regarding Daily Overtime.
