As of today, 11/1/19, virtual timecard is up and active on LiteBlue. Can be found under "Employee Apps-Quicklinks".

Kinda cool to see your exact hours displayed for each day.

On the lite blue home page you’ll see a box that says employee apps-quicklinks. It has boxes that are scrolling through it like epayroll, ereassign etc. One of the boxes scrolling by says Virtual Time card. Click on it and your daily start/ end times show up there.

I found it disappointing, it does not show all employee clock rings.
It was advertised to be exactly like tacs, and its not.

I find this app useful, although I kinda had fun trying to remember my exact clock in each day

"Your mileage may vary".


I always keep my time card on me. I had my card get moved a couple times and decided that was enough.

You're welcome!

Keep an eye on those hours. Sounds like many errors are already being made...

If you didn't find it by clicking around, no.

Which is a problem. Management can change your time at the last minute.
Learn to discipline yourself, so someone else doesn't have to

I left work early on Saturday, requested AL. New supervisor input LWOP instead of AL. I wouldn't have known except for this new program. Now I can get it fixed before I'm surprised in the next check. In its current incarnation it has limited usefulness.

is it up to management whether to approve AL/LWOP on those situations? (for example leaving 15 mins early on a light day)

Keen managers should want to run employees out of leave at every opportunity. If a mgr puts LWOP on a regular work day when an employee can leave early due to volume, they are running the risk that the carriers will make them provide them work in the future.

Yes, some carriers want LWOP in that situation and some might not have annual available.

The employee generally (FMLA, other exceptions) has no right to LWOP. Also, annual should be approved before the employee assumes they are on annual.

Count me in on the LWOP - I'd prefer to take as much as they let me. I don't get enough vacation as it is, and I'm not so hard up on cash that I'm gonna miss a few hours of pay.

Wow. I cannot remember the last time I clicked on that. It is kinda fun. Lots of easily-riled people on a couple forums. Some seem super serious so all you have to do is question their intelligence, manhood, or politics and they get all in a tizzy.

But I have lots of stuff to do and have been enjoying some other entertainment than that. I click on this one when I am chilling or doing paperwork because it has useful information and also the opportunity to assist my union brethren if I have any input they might use.

postalvet, I could change my name over there and let you impersonate me. All you have to do to have fun is to define true conservatism and Christianity to the Trump sheep there and compare that to them and their support of Trump. They start calling names, lying, changing what you said, manipulating numbers/words, stating stuff out of context, and anything else but honestly produce a cogent response or argument. It is sort of like when I first heard Hannity on the radio. I thought he was joking or it was some comedy show. Then I found out that people really fall for his crap. Lots of money in doing that, I guess.

p.s., postalvet. My favorite clown over there is a guy who copies and pastes lots of stuff, including financial analyses and opinions, and then fancies himself an avant-garde investor. It is funny because he is shameless and keeps copying and pasting stuff like he is some expert. He almost never uses quotation marks or credits the source. He just pretends he is some financial guru. I like financial stuff because I used to be a manager at a stock brokerage firm. If I happen to browse financial news I can often predict what companies he will claim he has some scoop on. He will claim he figured out some clever analysis or spotted some coming financial happenings. All he did was read it like anyone else did if they cared.
