Points User Guide


A ‘Points’ Profile will need to be assigned to each employee to have the system calculate Points, this includes new hires, existing, and re-hired employees. 

  • From your Start widget or Start button select the link under Employee Changes for ‘Other Employee Information’ (you can also select the menu mceclip1.png and navigate to Team mceclip2.png > My Team > Employee Information) 2020-10-06_17h42_36.png
  • Select the mceclip0.png icon to edit the employee’s information
  • Under the Simple Profiles section, choose the appropriate ‘Points’ Profile to assign to the employee then select 'Save'


You will also need to assign the employee an Updated To Date to begin their Points execution. If a start date is not given the system will go back to their hire date and execute Points from that date to the current execution date. (Note: Rehires can have Points automatically reset on their 'Re-Hired' date)

  • From your dashboard, under Employee Changes, select the link for ‘Edit Points’ (you can also select the menu mceclip1.png and navigate to Team mceclip2.png > Time > Points > Balances)mceclip0.png
  • Check the box on the left next to each employee needing an Updated To Date and click the button 'Change Updated To Date'
  • Select Calendar Date, enter the date to begin the employee’s Points calculation (this date is up to but NOT included)
    • i.e. If the pay period began 6/1, enter that date. The system will begin calculations as of 6/1 and going forward, anything prior to 6/1 will be ignored
  • Click 'Apply'


  • The employee will now list a zero balance with an Updated To Date, this is the date the system will begin calculating Points from2020-10-06_17h48_41.png


Points will be run for each pay period within your Time Prep steps under the step named “Points”. Ensure all updates to schedules, time offs, Exceptions, time entries, etc have been completed before clicking the button 'Run Points'. mceclip4.png

    • Preview’ will allow you to calculate Points from the employee's current ‘Updated To Date’ through a specific date you select. This option will not update the employee's current balance, this is just to see a “preview” of what would be calculated between those dates
    • Do Update’ will push through the calculated Points to the employee's balance for the specific date chosen and will update the employee’s ‘Updated To Date’
    • Test’ will allow you to choose either the employee’s current ‘Updated To Date’ or allow you to select an ‘Updated To Date’ to start the calculation from, then you can select an ending ‘Updated To Date’ to “test” what Points would calculate within that specific range of time
    • When choosing the Run Up To Date (Not Including)' ensure the date follows your policy and that the date you select will not be calculated in the current Points balance (i.e. If Points are calculated by pay period and the pay period begins on 8/1-8/15, you’d enter the pay period start date of 8/1 as your ‘Run Up To Date’, this tells the system to look at the timesheets up to 7/31 to calculate the employee's current Point balance)                                                                                                             mceclip2.png
