Job Tracking

In uAttend, you can set up jobs for your employees. Administrators enter jobs in the account and enable users to use the job tracking feature.
NOTE: The job tracking feature is only available for users in your account who use one of the Platinum Series C time clocks (BN6500, BN6000, CB6500, CB6000) and for users who clock in through the uAttend website.  The Job Tracking feature only records time worked, it does not record clocking In/Out information. Job Tracking information does not appear in the Timecard Reports.

Enabling Job Tracking

To enable the job tracking feature, follow these steps:

  1. Click the Settings tab.
  2. Click the Job Tracking link.
  3. Click Enable to enable the job tracking feature.

Note: Black is the active colour e.g. the screen shot below shows “Enabled” as clicked.

  1. Click Edit to change the job settings.

You can change the following settings through the Jobs dialog box.

Entry Type—Select List to allow employees to choose a job from a list. Select Manual Entry to allow employees to enter a job number manually each time they clock in.

Job Detail—This is only an option if List is selected for Entry Type. Select Enabled if you would like to utilize the job detail feature. A job detail is a component of a job (e.g., if a construction company is remodeling a hospital, drywall repair in the east wing may be a job detail).

First job Clock is Clock in—Select Enabled if you would like employees to automatically be clocked in for work when they enter the first job clock for the day.

Lunch/break start/end jobs—Select Enabled if you would like employees to still be clocked in to the same job once they have started and ended lunch or break clockings.

  1. Click Save And Close when you are finished.

NOTE:  You must also enable job tracking at the employee level. Click the Users tab, select the user, and make sure the Job Tracking setting is set to ON.
