How to register working hours

You "punch in" when you start the workday, and out when you finish. You may also register time after your workday. Note that when you punch in, you are automatically registered as if your punched out after a minute. You will overwrite this when you register the time your workday actually ended.

Timesheets for employees on time-limited hourly contracts (DFØ)

For hourly paid employees who register supplements to their salary.

  • Hourly employees must sign an hourly contract in order to register hours.
  • You register time via the tile "My contracts", not "Time".
  • In addition, hourly paid employees must remember to submit a timesheet at the end of the month. Go to Payment schedule for salaries and refunds for deadlines. Only one timesheet can be submitted per month per contract.
  • If you work in several places, you keep hours and send a timesheet for each employment contract.
