Easily input hours for individual workers or entire crews. Allocate work hours to specific cost codes for easier budget tracking. Split hours between cost codes on overtime and other payroll specifications (OT, DT, RT, PT).

There are 3 types of "Work Logs" that can be entered. They each cover a unique use case:

  • Standard: This open ended category lets you name a crew, person, or activity. You can then assign hours, quantity, description, and attachments to the hours logged.
  • Person: Helps keep track of your hours individually, or someone on your team. You can add a Classification, add one/many Cost Codes, and split hours between RT/OT/DT (done automatically!). 
  • Crew: Use this category to easily keep track of your team and the activities they perform on a given day. You'll be able to create a crew name, add workers, and split hours between cost codes as well as RT/OT/DT. 

Note: Select 'Default' to save worker and crew settings to select from when creating work logs for projects created in the future.
