  2. On the settings menu click TIMESHEETS, then click Overtime. 
  3. Select your overtime tracking option.  
  4. If required, select what time off policy you would like employees to be able to move overtime hours to - This gives employees the choice of either being paid for their overtime, or increasing their time off allowance.  
  5. Click SAVE
