New gig uses Paylocity. Still learning that.

I am not surprised to hear that Kronos is still terrible to use.
Carpe Diem actually. Maybe the "new" version is better if you use all of the fancy features like integrating it with your phone/email systems so it can try to "find time" you spent working on specific things...or I had a friend who worked somewhere with different time entry software that would literally be like "You had this word document open for 3 hours yesterday, would you like to bill that time?"

But if all you are using it for is a glorified spreadsheet to mark down hours worked...it's a piece of steaming trash.

Ugh, Carpe Diem is even worse. I think I had repressed my years of CD usage which combined with Lotus Notes did damage to my soul. I've been fortunate since I left the professional service world to be at startups that use more modern tools (and Macs!) and haven't had to deal with old world technology for the most part for my day to day work.

I didn't find Paylocity objectionable but as an exempt employee who didn't manage any non-exempt employes, I didn't have to deal with it much.

What I'm still learning with Paylocity is its functionality for things like self-onboarding, labour reports, etc. Thankfully I've only got five directs and they're all exempt.

Those two DHI LEAPS I bought a few weeks ago are now up about 1.7k and I can't decide if I should take some profits or let it ride. Jan 22 expiration so I'm thinking if it hits 2k I'll pull the rip cord.

We are still required to fill out Excel sheets for our time and email them to payroll. It's a PITA.

Lol, get into the 21st century man.
I don't get it. We are a modern company, but some stuff like payroll seems stuck in the dark ages.

I mean--sounds like a shit job for whoever works in payroll, but I'd take that any day over Crape Diem.

My wife has been doing some work that was originally being paid out of pocket by her employer under the table. She would just tell the woman how many hours she worked and get paid.

But now they got grant money and can pay her through their university payroll department. This requires she go through some sort of online timecard system where she clocks in and out after a multi-step login process...

But it is really not the kind of job that fits with a time clock. If it were a full time job rather than part time work, it would clearly meet the requirements of "exempt employee" and be salaried...(she's basically a shadow executive director/program manager for a teen-founded nonprofit).

So this leads to 2 common scenarios she seems to repeat frequently:
1. She forgets to clock out. There's no way to correct this yourself, you have to email some administrator and have them correct your time entry.
2. She realizes she's been working without clocking in (started thinking about something, joined a call, etc.). To solve this she clocks in and then sets a timer on her phone so she can clock out after the amount of time she was supposed to be compensated for.

ABNB has taken a hit recently but thinking earnings next week will be good with the reopening. My COIN position is garbage but I heard this week they have over $100B on platform so maybe it will come around. I took another small position in RBLX after having sold previously for a gain last time I held it. Should be an interesting next week. Likely sell everything other than ABNB and go back into Intl ETFs.

I'm not seeing an earnings announcement for ABNB next week. Also, you're not worried about the backlash they've been getting, as in, ordinances being written against them around the world?

I do ERP implementations. My clients have modern browser/cloud based time entry systems that are intuitive and easy enough to integrate into. I enter my time the morning its due (bi-monthly) into a shitty system that is likely older than me.
