Clockings and Timesheets (if Unitend is in use)

Clocking in, viewing your clockings history, checking flexitime balances, setting and populating timesheets.

Where appropriate, after each section candidates will be given a practical exercise to complete to gain some hands-on experience of the topic just covered.

Candidates will also receive a Self Service workbook which can be used as a reference when they return to their place of work and start to use the ‘live’ system.


The functionality that is available to candidates at their own place of work may vary from that described on the course, e.g. accessing old payslips and P60 information will apply only to those candidates whose companies are using the Carval Uniwage module.

There are essentially three common user types within Self Service and they are: 


Looks after the system including its security, its configuration, and its ‘look and feel’



Standard user with limited functionality, viz. can view and  update personal data, can review some historical data, e.g. absence history, and appraisal history, can request absences and training.



Management user with extensive functionality, viz. approve/reject absence and training requests, add starters and leavers, administer appraisals, review job applications, view user-defined reports, and more.

 This course will take candidates through all user types and knowing this may influence your decision on who to send on the course.
