Supervisor/Manager Functions

It is important to note that all employees on payroll will be interacting with the OSCAR system in some manner.  That includes personnel who utilize postive reporting (submitting timesheets) and those who are considered exception based (time off reporting only).  See the about page for a clear list of employee roles.

Supervisors will be approving timesheets once per week (not bi-weekly as in the past) for all employees that they serve as a direct report for.

The Frequently Asked Questions page can answer many of the most common questions.



As a supervisor, the two tasks below will comprise a majority of your interaction with the system. You may also interact with the system as an employee, this does not apply to Faculty.
