At the end of each month, time entry for the month that is 3 months earlier will be locked. Once a period locks, only Timekeepers and Central HR will be able to enter or adjust time in the locked period. The Prior Period Mass Advance of Time to the Timekeeper runs at least one week before the last day of the month when the prior period lock happens. See the Schedule and Important Dates at the end of this article.

Prior Period Mass Advance of Time Pre & Post Guidance
What to do BEFORE the Prior Period Mass Advance of Time process runs
Use the following reports to monitor your College, School, or Unit (CSU) for timesheet completion.
- Run the In Progress and Approved Time Events - RPT0791 report in Workday to view submitted time events.
- Run the Timesheet Status Detail – RPT0378 report in Workday as a final check for deleted time blocks that need to be submitted. Approved time blocks that are then deleted create unsubmitted time. This scenario does not appear on RPT1016.
- Run the Timesheet Completion Report for Workers - RPT1016 report in Workday to monitor timesheet completion, submission, and approval for workers you support. View guidance for RPT1016.
What to do AFTER the Prior Period Mass Advance of Time process runs
- Check for any missing or unsubmitted time that did not get mass advanced.
- Review, correct, and approve the time.
