Dentrix Ideas

Track sick leave, PTO, vacation, and holidays

Add options for the Time Clock to track sick leave, PTO, vacation, and holidays. Set up columns for regular hours and additional columns for each sick, vacation and holiday. Show vacation time as a different color. Options to auto pay holidays, also add an option for a "Per Diem" type, to pay a specific amount per day.

    Would be nice to set up time clock during date of hire which would track date of hire, when eligible for PTO, track PTO and time off, etc... would be amazing.

    How many votes constitutes changes being made? It seems that the time clock features really need to be changed!! This is very frustrating for an office manager.

    i agree and i wish it could be set up so that each employee can set up a time clock of his/her own at their computer without seeing everyone elses. so that each morning when i come in i could just click a time clock icon on my desk top and just my time clock would show up and i could clock in and out. as it is now i have to right click the dentrix launch icon in the lower right tool bar and than when the time clock menue pops up i have to scroll down until i find my name and than slect that and than clock in..... would be easier if it was just my name that appeared and at the end of the week i could just print it up and turn it in.

    It would also be nice if the staff had to enter in a password to clock in so no one else can clock in for anyone else!

    I have worked with many time clocks over the years in regards to payroll, and I can't believe a software as big as Dentrix has NO CAPABILITY to differentiate vacation/sick hours from regular hours. Now, precious time is wasted when I have to manually go look at each employees time card and manually track vacation hours. PLEASE EXPEDITE your efforts to solve this.

    Dentrix Time Clock needs a COMPLETE OVERHAUL. I am currently paying for a separate software package because Dentrix time clock is outdated and unhelpful. I am paying and using Shopclock until the Dentrix module is fixed. Please see their website for ideas on how a real timeclock software package should work: http://www.shopclock.com/. I CAN NOT WAIT UNTIL THIS IS FIXED!

    Yes, we agree this would be VERY helpful to Time Clock users. Many times, staffers do not get paid for their vacation or sick time because it doesn't get tracked properly in Dentrix. Then we have to retrace the time and issue new checks. It's absurd that you can only clock in and out without any allowances for paid time off tracking.

    this is a great idea so that people can see for themselves what there hours are and do not have to ask OM etc.. there will be no confusion.

    this would be an interesting idea. I also like the idea of password clock in/out.

    I agree with all of the comments below. For the past 3 years, the number one challenge was effectively tracking PTO, vacation & holidays. Please, Dentrix, for my sanity, i need this ASAP!!!!

    I agree that the Time Clockin Dentrix is really no better than paper and pen time tracking. Our system is password protected however and only the managers who have "rights" to the time clock can change a time punch. That is an easy problem to solve. It would also be nice if you could change the options in Dentrix Time Clock to keep time in portions of an hour rather than just hours and minutes worked. We have to hand calculate each employees (over 25) every pay period in order to turn it in to Paychex. Very time consuming.

    Is there a way to add PTO or Holiday without having to just add the hours? I just got off the phone with support and they told me I have to manually add holidays in as they come? Is this true?

    @Amanda Unfortunately that is correct. The only way to add holiday pay is to manually enter the hours. Lets get more requests on this topic, give it the weight it deserves. Thanks for the comment and the vote, Amanda.

    I ran out of votes, but this one gets my endorsement. Great idea.

    @Lisa Smith You should have votes now, we increased the votes available to everyone last week. Use them Wisely :D

    I was just thinking about how useful this would be. We recently started using the Dentrix time clock, and it has been nice in many ways, but it makes it difficult when trying to track vacation and holiday pay. What would be really nice is if you could set the total # of days available at the start of the year, this way you can easily tell employees how many hours/days they have left of PTO or vacation. It does add extra work hours to calculate - hours that could be better utilized in many areas!

    I would like the total hours to be separated with what Valarie stated. Sick Time, Vacation. I would also like the see the day of the week or something to separate the weeks.
