What is a time clock?

A time clock documents the start and end times for hourly employees as well as the amount of time spent on break. Business owners can then use this record of hours to calculate payroll.

Helpful tips

Keep your time clock record – along with all your other records and documents – in one place so that you’re prepared for tax time. Here are a few other helpful tips:

  • Employee contracts aren’t a legal requirement, but they protect your employees and your business. Contracts can outline everything from job descriptions and expected hours of work to the date of employment and salary details. A lawyer can help you draft a contract if you have any questions as to what should be included.
  • Whether you hire full-time employees, contractors or freelancers makes a big difference when it comes to payroll. Make sure you’re compensating them properly and according to the tax guidelines where your business operates.
  • Wave’s payroll software comes with worry-free features such as automatic tax remittances, direct deposits into your employees’ bank accounts and automatic payroll journal entries.

  1. Enter your employee's start time for the shift they work.
  2. Enter your employee's end time for the shift they work.
  3. Enter the total amount of break time your employee takes for their shift.
  4. Repeat the first three steps for each day of the week that you employee works.
  5. Review the resulting chart to see the total working hours of your employee that you'll need to pay out for that work week.

How to Track Hours like a Pro

A critical part of running your business's payroll is keeping accurate records of your employees' hours. This ensures that you're able to compensate your employees for the right amount of time they've worked each week, and helps keep your bookkeeping in order for when tax season arrives. If you employ salaried employees, then your job is a bit easier. So, here are some important ways to accurately track your hourly employees' shifts so that running your payroll is fast and efficient:

  1. Create time-sheets for each one of your employees.
  2. Record each of your employees' shifts in their associated time-sheets for each work week, including the start and end time of each shift.
  3. Record the allotted amount of break time that each employee receives for each of their shifts throughout the week.
  4. Note any sick days or vacation time that your employees have taken throughout the week.
  5. Calculate the total amount of hours worked for each of your employees throughout the week using a free tool like our Time Clock Calculator, or by signing up for Wave's Payroll feature which provides more advance and accurate time-sheet tracking.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
