Security Level Required: Manager, Employee Administrator, or Payroll Administrator

Using the left pane Main Menu, click on: Administration » Job Management » Jobs

HINT: If you plan on assigning jobs to customers for billing purposes or to organize jobs by categories, set up the Job Categories and Job Customers first.

    New Job icon at the top of the page.

    • If a computer monitor is connected directly to your TimeIPS time station, the Long Name displays during clock in and out of a job. The Short Name displays on the TimeIPS small LCD display.
    • Job Codes can be 1-12 alpha-numeric characters in length. Each Job Code must be unique. Employees clock in and out of jobs using the this job code. The employee will enter the job code from the TimeIPS numeric keypad, from an alpha-numeric computer keyboard connected to TimeIPS (PS2), or with a barcode gun when clocking in/out of jobs.
    • NOTE: The TimeIPS 8150 Series Barcode Reader requires a minimum of 4 characters. The TimeIPS LS4000 Series Barcode Reader will read 1-12 characters.

      NOTE: Job Codes can include numbers, capital and lower case letters, and dashes. Job Codes are case sensitive.

    • Each Job can be assigned a Billing Rate that will display on the Extended Employee/Job Report. This rate will not automatically be used to calculate the employee's gross pay for each job. You can, however, use functions within your spreadsheet application to create gross pay calculations.
    • The Control Number can be used to link job codes to another application you might be using.
    • GL (General Ledger) Number can be used to indicate an account number associated with the job.
    • Flexible (web-only) jobs are designed for employees to designate how they spent their time worked after the time has been worked. Validated (station-only) jobs are designed to track actual time worked, in real-time, on specific jobs.
