Changes to Timesheet Submission and Approval

Payroll is now using Banner Communication Manager (BCM) for timesheet reminder emails, giving these emails a new, modern look (sample). The first emails using the new design were sent on November 2 for bi-weekly timesheets and November 8 for semi-monthly timesheets.

Additionally, the timesheet submission deadline has been extended from noon (11:59 a.m.) to midnight (11:59 p.m.) to reduce the number of timesheet reminders sent and to allow them to be sent during business hours. Our goal is to increase the timely submission and approval of timesheets, as this is critical to payroll processing.
