    • Time Clock

      Would be very useful if the time clock could break down regular accrued hours and overtime hours worked. Not just earnings.

      • Regular Time/ Overtime

        Please separate regular worked hours and overtime hours. That would be a great help .

            • Set time limits for clocking in & clocking out. For example employees should not be allowed to clock in before 7:50 am & out after 5:15

              Set time limits for clocking in & clocking out. For example employees should not be allowed to clock in before 7:50 am & out after 5:15 on a normal 8-5 work day. I think Timeclock is very hard to use as an administrator. It doesnt track any vacation time or PTO either.

              • time clock

                We are thinking about using your time clock feature but found that we can't just log in or out. Every employee has to bring the time clock up every time. Other systems allow time clock to sit in the backround and employees are able to log in and out easily. Why not here? And, is it true that employees can adjust their punch in and out times? I hope not because that is why we are considering using this feature

                  Hello!
                  Our time clock feature permissions can be customized so that your users don’t have the ability to edit punches or notes. You can see and configure those settings per user in the Office Manager > Maintenance > Practice Setup > Passwords > User Passwords Setup, then select the desired time clock permissions.

                • I would like the ability to have the time records exported in a CVS File for our payroll company

                  I would like the ability to upload our Time Clock to our payroll service using a CSV File.

                  I would like to create and export a CSV file at the end of each pay period... that I could upload into our Payroll Services Portal.

                    Auto time for days of the week. This way it can match your office hours that aren't the same everyday.
                    M 12-6
                    T 8-5
                    etc.

                    • need to be able to print out weekly payroll hours for 2016 for employees as requested by Dept of Labor.

                      Create options to list per week worked hours, for any length of time such as 6 mths for individual employee.
                      This was requested by dept of labor for audit to see if we are compliant with Labor laws.

                      Right now I have to manual assemble each week's total onto an Excel page and it is very time consuming and difficult.

                        Trevor Terry responded

                        I think I understand, you’re specifically looking for the payroll report (or another report) that will automatically break down the hours each individual received into predetermined groups, such as weekly or bi-weekly?

                        That makes sense – I’ll open this idea back up, and ensure that it’s properly documented.

                        Thanks.

                      • we get paid bi weekly - so I the screen to reflect the pay weeks we are currently in.

                        Allow the office to select their pay weeks so the history screen reflects the actual weeks that we get paid.

                          • Time clock

                            Is there a way to convert minutes to hours in the time clock feature automatically, or a setting to change it to total HOURS NOT MINUTES worked prior to printing hours?
                            I have been getting shorted hours because my boss uses the minutes as the decimal point instead of converting to hours. For example: it will print 7:30 which is 7 hours 30 minutes so she uses 7.30 instead of converting to 7.50. I have told her several times, but she doesn't seem to get it.
                            Is there a setting in Dentrix that can convert this prior to printing in…

                              Is there a way to convert the minutes to hours automatically so when time sheets are printed out for payroll, the minutes have already been converted to hours? I have been being shorted hours in my paycheck due to my boss not doing the conversion because she thinks its already been done in Dentrix. I have tried to explain this to her to no avail. I am fairly new in the office, so I don't want to make waves, but I know I'm right about this, since I used to do payroll years ago. If it is just a setting,…

                                    Administrator Screen in Time Clock
                                    There should be a way for the office administrator to be able to look at all of the employees at one time and make adjustments to the employee times without having to log in as each employee.

                                        Have a thumbprint scanner for clock in and out. Also have the ability to remove the timeclock from certain workstations(ie.. have a designated workstation for clock in and out)

                                        • Communicate known important issues to your customers

                                          When you have a known issue like payroll reports are inaccurate if time punches are edited,. You should tell your customers. Three of ten of my employees were paid incorrectly today.

                                            The original issue you experienced with the payroll report has been resolved, but i’m going to keep this idea open, because I think that transparency is needed for these kinds of issues.
