Time tracking in Gojee is flexible and can be done either via real time capture of data using a timer, or by retrospectively recording hours against tasks. Time captured can be allocated to both the individual worker and the job they’re working on.
The recommended process is that each workers times are reviewed periodically using the Daily Task Review page, and once these times are accurate, then the information for generating workers timesheets and calculating the costs for jobs will also be accurate. This provides confidence when invoicing jobs, reviewing profitability, and simplifies the administration required to process payroll.
To track time for workers against jobs in Gojee the following are required:
To track time for workers against non-job tasks in Gojee the following are required:
In Gojee, there are three different types of “Activities” that time can be tracked against for a task. These include:
When starting a timer in Gojee, or retrospectively entering time for your workers, these three activity options are available. If the time is not customer billable, it will not be allocated to a job. If the time is not paid to a worker, it will show as unpaid time on their daily task review page.
Once a worker has a task scheduled for them, these users can navigate to My Work > Active Jobs page to see a list of all their scheduled tasks. There are two views on this page, one for the worker with the basic customer job staff role (refer to Employees and Contractors for more information), and the other for job manager roles.
Users with this role will only be able to see the tasks they have been assigned (and not see tasks that other users have been assigned):
Users can see the tasks scheduled for the day selected, as well as any overdue or incomplete tasks.
To start a timer for each task the user can simply hit the Start button for the task. The following image is what this screen looks like on a mobile device:
Once the timer is started, the task with a timer running will show in yellow:
The view on the mobile will show as follows:
Once the task is done, the user can then either start the next task (which will stop the timer for the running task) or they can mark the task as complete (which will also stop the task) and then start the next task. Marking a job as complete will strikeout the task and highlight it green so the user can keep track of their active and completed tasks:
To start a timer against a “Downtime” or “Break” activity instead of “General” time, users can simply use the yellow buttons at the bottom of the Active Jobs page:
Manager View (manager role):
For users with Customer Job Manager, or Administrator roles there is additional functionality displayed on the Active Jobs page. This includes an additional filter to choose the staff member so they can see scheduled tasks for all workers:
Users with role Customer Job Manager or above can also navigate to the “See all scheduled tasks for all jobs” button to see all tasks on the Staff Scheduler Page. This will show you all the scheduled tasks across all workers, and can be shown in a daily, weekly or monthly view:
To start workers timers from this schedule page, users can click on the individual task to bring up a modal which provides the option to start a timer, and also perform other functions such as viewing the job details, recording consumables etc. For more information on using the staff scheduler refer to this article Scheduling.
Navigate to HR Management from the Dashboard, and then select the “Track Staff Time Against Jobs” button.
Use this button to track time against a job without a pre-scheduled task. You will be presented with the following modal where you can select the staff member, the job, the professions and the type of activity:
All edits to times in the system will have an audit log indicating the user that made the change, and the changes that were made.
To review and edit the times captured, or create new time entries for a worker, navigate to the Daily Task Review Page, select the date and the worker to get started.
If a change to the times has been made, an icon will appear in the Audit column as shown in the image above. You can hover over this to see the audit log.
The Display Settings at the top of the page enable you to show or hide information from the page.
Navigate to the Daily Task Review page, select the employee and then hit the green “Create Task” button at the top right of the page.
