UTSA Launches Self-Service Timesheets

Job Aids and Video Button

UTSA has changed how timesheets are entered by employees and approved by managers in PeopleSoft using the new Time and Labor Employee (ESS) and Manager Self-Service (MSS) platforms. Employees now enter timesheets directly into PeopleSoft ESS. The timesheet routes to their supervisor for approval in PeopleSoft. Department timekeepers are no longer responsible for entering timesheets for these employees.

Only employees with a classifications listed below are deployed for Time and Labor Employee Self-Service for time and absence reporting.

  • Administrative & Professional
  • Salaried Exempt
  • Salaried Non-Exempt
  • Hourly Staff
  • Hourly Students
  • Hourly Work-Study

Timekeepers continue to enter exceptions on timesheets for Graduate Research Assistants, Graduate Teaching Assistance, and faculty in UTShare.

Timesheet job aids are available to both employees and supervisors. 
For questions, contact BIS at ext. 7762.
