Change Request for UI Component in Widget Timesheet: Payroll Summary

Is it possible to remove the column heading "Hours" in the second column of this UI component? It is very confusing, as the number represented in this column is a mix of days and hours. For example, the first two rows are Days off and Days worked, and the other rows that are actually used for for hours have the word hours in their title anyway.

Hi Cory,

I got the below screenshot from Moharnab, sorry for the delayed response. The Pay Code section below is picking names from the Pay codes you have created in the system. Typically Hours column only indicates the total number of hours for that particular Time Off type associated with that pay code. Are you saying that Annual Vacation Days = 4 days & not 4 hours? 




To upload screenshots you can click on the 'camera' icon on the bar as shown in the screenshot below: 



Thanks,

Thank you Lingaraj.
Yes, as is indicated in the row labels, Annual Vacation Days, Days off, and Days worked are all in units of days. This is why the column heading makes the table become confusing (and why the Total at the bottom further confuses things, which is a separate but related issue). Is this a unique issue to our situation because of our modified payrules?

Hi Cory,

There is now an option to hide the totals, which might help with the confusion.

Thanks,
Charlene

Hi Cory,

The custom timesheet is currently designed to display the number of hours booked against each Time Off type or Payrule setup, each Time Off type or Payrule is in turn associated with different pay codes.

Yes, in your scenario 'Hours' column does work against you. We will also need to see if other clients have a similar requirement and based on the number requests received, our PM team will look at making further changes. 

I would recommend adding a new '+Add a UI Component' called as 'Notice' to the current custom timesheet template, which you can populate with a message of your own educating users to ignore referring to the hours column for now.

Refer to the screenshots below: 




I know this may not be the perfect solution, but you can consider this a work around for now until such an option becomes available. Should you need help in setting this up just email the support team and one of the team members will call you back. 

Let me know if that work for you.

Regards,
Lingaraj

Hi Cory,

I have marked this as an idea.

We agree that clarification would be helpful, our PM team will plan to address this.

  • How do you think it should look like?
  • Rename it to say: Hours/Days or Add a column for Unit of Measure
Let me know what your thoughts are around that? 

Regards,
Lingaraj

I think having a separate column for hours and days would be the cleanest approach.
I also really hope you can remove the total at the bottom of the table as well, as I can't imagine how this is of use to anyone. Table is already showing weekly totals in each category, so it isn't necessary, is it? In our case it just confuses our users, and it feels a bit silly to tell them to just ignore something that looks like it should have importance.

Hi Cory,

A new option in the custom timesheet template allows you to disable the totals.

Refer to the screenshot below:




This change will take effect for all new timesheets that get generated. The rest of the feedback will be reviewed by the PM team.

Thank you,
Lingaraj

If I understand correctly, that would disable all of the totals in each of the rows of the payroll summary, right? This is not what we need, as our users are checking the payroll summary before submitting timesheets.

It will disable the bottom "TOTAL" row so it is no longer displayed. Each row will still have a total next to it.

Hi Cory,

We've recently made the change to call the column "Quantity" instead of "Hours". Hope this helps reduce confusion for your employees.

Thanks,
Charlene
