Purchase and Labor transactions can be added one at a time through the Transaction section of the work order. However, there are several ways for Administrators, Supervisor I's, and Clerks to enter multiple transactions at one time when needed.
Adding Multiple Transactions for Multiple Work Orders
This is one of the quickest ways to add labor and purchase transactions.
- Click on the Add link in the Actions menu.
- Click the Labor Hour link to add labor transactions or click the Purchase link to add material transactions.
- Both links take you to a multi-line form where you may enter up to seven individual transactions on as many as seven different work orders.
- The field headings in the blue bar at the top correspond to the entry fields in the columns below. See the examples below showing the Add/Update Labor Hours screen and the Add/Update Purchases screen:
- Click Save at the bottom of the form to save all entries on the page.
- The last ten transactions that were entered into the system are listed below the multi-line form. Each transaction has an Edit button next to it should you need to change any information. You may also check the box in the first column and click on the Delete button at the bottom to delete any of the last ten transactions.
Adding Multiple Labor Transactions for the Same User
Using this shortcut, you can enter multiple labor transactions on different work orders for the same user at one time.
- Click on Transactions under the Information Analysis section of the home page.
- Hover over the Shortcuts menu and click on Add Labor.
- This page defaults to all work orders that are assigned to you. You can select a different user from the Employee drop down at the top of the screen to enter their hours. And you can filter the list for a particular status by using the Status drop down box at the top of the page.

- Click the Save button to save the information entered for all work orders.
