Blank Checks Worksheet
Here was a spreadsheet that had been created by someone with a good knowledge of formulas and functions. But... it was not obvious at first glance what to do with it. Do I click on one of these buttons? Do I need to enter some data? Where do I enter the data? On closer examination these were the problems that made it difficult to use: - There was no heading or title. - It was very dense in terms of the number of cells showing on screen. - Ranges of cells were formatted in five different colours. What did it all mean? - Help provided was limited to brief comments in some cells and some of these were in hidden columns. - The sections for data entry and the sections for results were not clearly separated. - Macro buttons were square in shape.
Unfortunately manual insertions led to cheating tricks which involved clocking into work by proxy. In this case an individual would ask a co-worker to insert their cards one after the other into the time clock. Thus it would look like the first employee also clocked in early but in truth it was almost ten o clock when he sat down at his desk. However the recent developments in computer technology have turned this "cheat" and others like it into a relic of the analog-dependent past. Now there s a more reliable method in managing the monthly payroll that s free from overt manipulation of actual hours worked.

Quickly Redistribute the Work Load during Sudden Absences and Emergencies Managing different sets of work schedules for different groups of employees at the same time becomes even more difficult to handle when changes had to be made frequently. On top of re-scheduling employees with approved vacation and maternity leaves shift managers and business owners also had to deal with unexpected absences because of a sudden illness or a personal emergency. Generally sick workers had to call in an hour or two before the morning shift began and inform the shift supervisor that they d be absent for that day.
Naturally the employee s injury automatically qualified the employee for a sick leave with pay. In addition the employer immediately presumes the employee s lengthy absence (about a week or two) because of the time required for complete healing and recovery. Another situation where an employee had to end his shift early usually involves someone closely related to him or her either by blood or by friendship. The emergency leave s purpose was to give ample time for the employee to go home straight or to quickly travel to the hospital where she was urgently needed by her child her spouse or her dearest friend.
