Departmental Time Entry

Departmental Time Entry

What is Departmental Time Entry (DTE)? DTE is an electronic means for department timekeepers to enter time for a group of employees within their time sheet organization (department).  The timekeepers can then submit the time transactions to the appropriate approvers.  Once the time transactions are approved, they can be uploaded into the payroll system for payment.  This functionality results in efficient administration of the following processes:
  • Time entry
  • Approvals
  • Accurate payment to the employees
Who uses DTE? DTE is being used campus-wide by departments who employ:
  • Hourly/Bi -Weekly employees (DTE for BW)
  • Student employees (DTE for ST)
Approximately 100 Timekeepers enter hours for over 1,200 employees during the peak academic months. 
Questions regarding DTE should be directed to the Oakland University Payroll Office:
