Learn how to enter leave on your timecard or leave calendar.

This article applies to benefited leave-eligible employees. 


Note: Leave in PioneerTime can be manually entered onto your timecard/leave calendar, or it can be requested via the Leave Manager. Check with your supervisor for their preference. For guidance on requesting leave via the Leave Manager, please see the Requesting Time Off Using the Leave Request Manager.

Entering time off on your timecard/leave calendar

1. Log in to PioneerTime.

2. If you are also a PioneerTime supervisor, change your workspace view to navigate to the Employee view.

3. Navigate to the correct date and click on the Pay Code field. Select the correct leave type from the dropdown menu. 

4. In the Amount column, enter the number of hours of leave requested for that day. Exempt employees must use half day increments. 

5. Click Save in the top right corner. 

Error Messages

If an error message appears when trying to enter time off, verify:

  • You have not already entered this leave in the PioneerTime Request Manager. Leave should either be entered manually or submitted through the Request Manager, but trying to complete both will result in an error message.
  • You have enough vacation/sick accrual available for the request. Paid time off cannot be taken in advance of being earned.
