Time Card Periods
Time Card Period defines the date range for a given Time Card and has the following properties:
- It can only be 7 days long
- It can begin on any day of the week (usually Sunday, or Monday)
- It must be defined by a unique date range, no two Time Card periods can overlap
- We recommend using a standard naming convention for your Time Card Periods such as “Week Beginning YYYY-MM-DD” e.g. Time Card Period for week beginning 5/28/14 would be “Week Beginning 2014-05-28”

Summary of Steps:
Technical Note - A Time Card must be associated with one or more Accounting Periods in order to post Time Cards. If a time card period does not cross accounting periods (5/21/14 – 5/27/14), it should be related to only one accounting period (2014-05). If a time card period spans two accounting periods (5/28/14 – 6/4/14), it should be related to two accounting periods (2014-05 and 2014-06). Accounting Seed will automatically associate Time Card Periods to Accounting periods when the Time Card Periods are Created. If Time Card Period dates are modified after they are created they may not be associated to the correct periods.
