What are ExakTime Connect settings?

There are two sets of ExakTime Connect settings: Company and User Settings.

Company Settings affect your entire company account and is used to define your pay period, work week, etc. and enable options for your company such as expense tracking and time card approvals.

User Settings affect the user and determine preferential items such as hour formats, distance formats, and first/last name order.
