Via Punch Time Clocks and Web Clocks
Another alternative for collecting/reporting time data is using a time clock or web clock.
These methods are designed for units that need to know the exact times their employees start and end their work shifts. Approvers/supervisors have regular access to computers where they can approve the time on a daily basis.
Punch utilizes a physical time clock attached to a wall, usually located near the employees’ work location. At the start and end of a shift, employees swipe their U-M ID cards at a time clock to punch in/out. The in/out punches flow through to the Punch timesheet in M-Pathways, generating Regular (REG) hours worked.
Web clock requires employees to log into their Employee Self-Service page in M-Pathways via the Wolverine Access webpage to punch a virtual clock. Employees may sign-in on their own work computer, or a computer within their department may be designated for this task. The in/out punches flow through to the Punch timesheet in M-Pathways, generating Regular (REG) hours worked.
