Adding Labor Time
Tracking labor time in your WorxHub account allows you to track the labor cost of a work order. You can add your labor time from both the Dashboard and from the work order.
Watch the Video Tutorial:
Adding Labor From the Dashboard
- From your Dashboard, use the categories under the Work Order section or the search field to find the work order you need to mark complete.
- Hover your mouse over the work order and click on the Enter Labor Time link that appears.
- In the pop-up window, Enter time for each of the work order's assignees.
- Time can be entered as minutes or hours. For example, a worker that spent 1 hour and 15 minutes on the job can enter their time any of the following ways: 75, 75m, 1:15, 1h15m, 1h 15m, 1 15, and 1.25.
- Select the Rate Type for the assignee.
- Click Save to log the time on the work order.
Adding Labor from a Work Order
- From the work order form, click on Labor to expand that panel.
- If the user whose labor time you need to add is not already listed under Assigned Labor, click on Add Labor to expand that section of the panel.
- Check the box next to the user whose labor needs to be added, then click Add Selected. *Note: If the work order is currently assigned to a team, you will need to remove the team assignment, and then check the box next to the users who need labor added.
- In the user's record in the Assigned Labor section, enter the labor information in the Log New Time section.
- Edit the Date, Type, and Rate as necessary.
- Enter the duration of the labor in the Time field, OR, enter a Start and End time and TheWorxHub will calculate the labor time for you.
- If you selected *FLAT in the Rate field, enter a Cost. If you selected a predetermined Rate, the cost will be calculated for you.
- Click Save to add that labor time to the work order.
- In any labor time field, if you just enter the number 1, 2, 3, or 4 without anything else TheWorxHub will assume you meant hours. Type '1' and TheWorxHub will log 1 hour. However, once you type 5 or greater without any other characters, TheWorxHub assumes you meant 5 minutes, not 5 hours.
- Data collected from TheWorxHub shows only 2.5% of jobs are under 5 minutes, so 97.5% of the time, when you type the number '2', chances are that you meant 2 hours.
- On the other hand, only 2.7% of jobs are over 5 hours. So when you type '10', there's a 97.3% chance you meant 10 minutes.
