Clock In and Out of a Work Order

Tracking time on work orders allow you to organize your schedule, organize labor costs and more. However, when faced with a list of tasks it can often slip your mind to check when the task was started and how long it took to complete. To solve this, clock in and out of work orders to avoid having to manually enter labor hours and eliminate the guess work!

Clocking into a work order is simple, and saves you time so that you can focus on the work that matters.

Use this feature to:

  • Automatically track Labor
  • Eliminate the guess work of how long a task took to complete
  • Save time by no longer manually tracking labor
