This screen is used to set a user's application preferences. This
screen is available to employees and managers and each role has a different
view of the screen. The
screen is also accessible from the Employee Overview to facilitate managing
the preferences of an employee by managers and administrators.
Employee View Tips
Note that while the Language Preference is presented as an option, but
the application has not been translated into the Spanish language, so
English is used regardless of this setting.
Employees can receive email messages from TimeTraq each time his/her
Timesheet is approved/rejected by a manager or when the approval process
is complete by selecting the desired option on this screen.
Employees can also specify a "short submit" path, which directs
the employee directly to the Certification and Submission tab upon Timesheet
submission bypassing the overview tabs.
Manager View Tips
A manager may also be an employee in the sense that they complete hourly
Timesheets, in which case the Preferences screen would permit setting
employee preferences as well.
- Note that manager-specific screens are not localized
for language, so the Language Preference does not apply to manager-specific
A manager can be notified when new items arrive in their TimeTraq inbox
in various ways, as set on this screen.
A manager can also control whether they are notified when other managers
for whom he/she is a Delegate have their inboxes updated.
General Screen Tips
Only Employees and Managers have Preferences, though this screen is
available to all roles that also have access to the Employee Overview
that managers may not set other managers' preferences that are specific
to that role.
