Reports Walkthrough

Reports are used to turn information such as your employee list, time cards, etc. into pre-formatted reports to print out or save into a digital format for easy review and distribution.

Reports can be accessed by clicking Reports from the menu bar.

Report Options

Date Range

The date range specifies the time period that should be shown. This can be set to preset date ranges or can be custom.



Formatting is used to format information for ease of viewing or including additional items such as a company name/logo. An important option available is to show total time in hours & minutes or decimals. For more information regarding time formats, please refer to the following article: Hours & Minutes and Decimal Time


Report Specific Options

Each report allows certain options to display information in a certain way or include additional information. The example below is a list of report specific options for the Employee Time Card report.



Filters are used to focus on selected information such as certain employee, locations and/or cost codes. This can help you take advantage of reports in creative ways such as using an Employee Touch Detail report that shows a detailed break down of an employees time card, but using location filters to focus on a small handful of locations. codes.

For more information about filters and how to use them, please refer to the following article: Report Filters

Possible Messages when Viewing a Report

Sorry, there's nothing to display for the report you requested.

The message "Sorry, there's nothing to display for the report you requested" is a common message that can be caused when viewing a report that has no relevant information for the date range selected or by having filters enabled with nothing selected.

The easiest way to confirm what is going on is to first review the employees time card from the Time Card Details page. If there is no time on the employees time cards, then you will want to focus more on why you have not received your employee's records yet.

If you do see that there is time for an employee on their time card and the issue not displaying any information, then you will want to focus on your filters. The filters may be restrictive enough to not let your report display the relevant information.

In the example below, we have selected to filter out anything not selected, but we have not selected anything. You would either select something to filter to, set the report to include All information, or clear all of your filters.


Sorry, there was a problem running the report. Please adjust your report options to include a smaller dataset.

The message "Sorry, there was a problem running the report. Please adjust your report options to include a smaller dataset." can appear when you try to view a report that includes a large volume of data. In the event of this, we would recommend adjusting your filters/date ranges for a smaller volume of data (e.g. instead of running a report for 4 continuous years, try two reports going over 2 year chunks.)
