Jobsheet overview

Last updated - Apr 30, 2024 at 8:55AM

TimeDock jobs allow you to optionally allocate time against a maximum of two work items:

  1. Project or Task
  2. Activity
Work type Description

A project is a one-time work item. For example a carpenter may begin a new project and call it NEW HOUSE 1. He can then scan workers In/Out for this project, thereby allocating employee time to it. Once the project is marked as complete he can no longer apply workers' time to it.

A task is a many-times work item. For example a carpenter may have a task setup as RUBBISH CLEANUP. This task is performed multiple times on different worksites. Tasks are different to Activities in that many employees can be working on the same task but each can be performing a different Activity at the same time. For example on our construction site we are all working on the task RUBBISH CLEANUP but only one person was doing the activity SWEEPING while the rest of us were performing activity FILLING BIN.

Unlike projects, tasks are not dispatched to devices. They must first be scanned by the device using the TimeDock Mobile App to start the instance of the task, which creates a new instance/line on the Jobsheet each time. Time is accrued against each task instance rather than consolidating against a single instance.

Tasks can only be used by scanning the task QR code with the TimeDock Mobile App and are not intended for use with the TimeTablet device.

An activity is a way of categorising the type of work to be done. For example a carpenter may select from a choice of activitity codes such as DIGGING, PLANNING or CONSTRUCTING, or any code as entered by the account administrator.
