How to use Time Category Running Totals

It can happen that there is a need to know the summed value of a time category or counter at various points through a period, or to pass values between periods. Jarrison Time provides the utility to achieve this through the Is a Running Total setting for time categories and counters.

Usage Example

In this example we’ll look at how to track a time category called “Banked Time” through a period. Each day some time may contribute to the category, and the cumulative value should roll forwards.

In Time Categories, Banked Time is marked Is a Running Total.

On the day program Rules tab, today’s banked time is added with yesterday’s banked time to give us the Running Total.

Sample of results:

Without Is a Running Total applied, the RunTotal column displays the summed results of the period in the totals, which is not desired here.

Note that Is Running Total categories will have totals per the results of the last day of the period. This means that if there is any change made to the result on the last day, the period total will take that value. In the image below, a manual adjustment was applied on Saturday where the Running Total category was amended to 05:00. That becomes the period total as it’s the last value in the period.

Glossary of Terms

.Net Framework

(known as “dot net”) .Net is a software development framework for building and running applications on Windows.

Access Control

Access control refers to the restriction of people’s ability to clock on biometric devices based on location and/or time. Advanced access control includes anti-passback and zone sequencing.

Access Groups

Access Groups in Jarrison Time are combinations of Devices and Time Zones, used to determine on which devices and at which times members of the Access Groups may clock. Access Groups also facilitate restrictions based on too much or too little clocking in specified time-frames.

Access Groups can by synchronized or imported by Third-Party Import, or by users.

Access Zone

In Jarrison Time an Access Zone is how devices are grouped together to form logical zones for the purposes of access control. The option is available with the JT Live module.

Adjustments (Manual Adjustments)

Adjustments are the method of covering absence of time by employees in Jarrison Time. Examples of adjustments would be Annual leave and Sick leave. Adjustments are typically applied by a user via Daily Details as needed, or can be imported from file. It’s very important that Adjustments are correctly configured and applied as paid or unpaid. (Unpaid will result in Short Time.)

Anti Passback

Anti Passback is a form of access control where people are restricted from clocking on the device most recently clocked on, until they have clocked at another device.

Approval Bypass

Approval Bypass is a feature of Jarrison Time Approvals that allows for the first approval tier to be approved without any exceptions being cleared.


Approvals are a system-wide setting that forces users to correct Exceptions and then lock periods from further editing, ready for submission to payroll.

Jarrison Time allows for up to three tiers of Approvals: Daily Summary (timesheet), Pay totals, Department totals. Starting at timesheet level, each tier needs to be approved before the next one can process.


An Area in Jarrison Time refers to a GPS location with a set radius, which designates a permitted T&A clocking area for JT Clock users.
