in thread Timesheets: What are they good for?

My last job we filled out paper time sheets, and accountability/verification was very lax. The data was used for payroll only.

My current job requires programmers to punch in and out. I haven't been here long enough to figure out what they're using the data for.

If you give a man a fish he will eat for a day. If you teach a man to fish he will buy an ugly hat. If you talk about fish to a starving man, you're a consultant.

    Used for payroll? Lucky you!

    At my last job everybody was required to fill out a (badly done) html page which emailed the payroll person your hours. They were supposed to use that in paying us - yet the tech staff were all on a salary so no matter what we put it never matched up to what we got. The stupid thing is that we were even told not to "rock the boat" by putting our real hours down.

    So faced with the dodgy task of having to fill out a time sheet that nobody took of, with incorrect data .... I whipped up a script that submitted the timesheet for us.

    Weekly reports were a joke as well .... but that's a completely different story!
