Hourly Employees: Recording Time in the My Patriot Mobile App

1. Log into the time and attendance mobile app with your employee login username and password.

2. By default, the “Today” screen will be displayed.

Your time card will display your work location’s time zone. You can update your work time zone in your employee portal (not the time and attendance app). Please read Change your work time zone setting.

3. If you work multiple jobs for your company, the primary job will display by default. Select the job description from the dropdown before entering your time.

4. Enter your time.

  • If your employer has set your time card to punch in and out, you will see “Punch In” if it is your first clock-in of the day.
    • Click the “Punch In” button to automatically enter an “IN” timestamp on your time card.  Click the “Punch Out” button to enter an “OUT” timestamp on your time card. 
    • If you miss a punch or need to make corrections to your timecard, you will need to ask your employer to fix this for you.  
  • If you do not use a time punch to enter your time, enter the “In” time by clicking the “Set Time” button. You can manually type minutes and hours for your time tracking with this format 8:00 AM
  • Click In / Out to add another set of “In” and “Out” cells for a day. For example, if you arrive at 8 a.m. and leave for a lunch break from 12 -1 p.m., click “Set Time” for each entry.  Then, you can record your arrival time, when you left for lunch, when you returned, and when you left for the day. 

    Be sure to include a corresponding “Out” time for each “In” time that you add.

5. Add “Other Hours,” if applicable by clicking the “+ Add Other Hours” link. If your employer offers tracking for non-worked hours such as vacations or holidays, click the “+ Add Other Hours” link.  New rows will appear on your time card (if your employer has added them). Enter the total daily non-worked hours in the corresponding row. Balances will be displayed for each non-worked hour available.

6. Add any comments, if needed by clicking the comments link at the top left-hand corner of the time card screen.  You can add your comments about this pay period, such as explaining an absence or a changed work schedule.

7. Click the “Click Submit Time Card” link when you are finished entering your time for the pay period.  You can still make edits after you approve your own time card, but you can no longer make edits once your manager approves the time card and you see the word “Approved”.
