You might want to take your fancy book-larnin’ elsewhere and go to a semi-literate place.

When the majority of people are having trouble with something, there's a good chance the problem isn't with the people. I'd suggest looking back at your timesheet and checking if it's as easy as you think and maybe have someone else look over it.

Instead of having people write in their PTO requests, or special clocks like training, I made a section where they just check a box. As in PTO [ ]. They're still writing these in the sections where they log their In/Out times. I also included a legend in case they didn't know what PTO, or inservice meant. I also added a rather large lined section at the bottom titled "Notes." Again, people are just writing over the In/Out section.
