Editing Addresses on Existing Tasks

Today's post will talk about a new feature that has been added to our web portal, which will enable users to easily edit addresses on existing tasks. Previously, if you added a task to the system, you needed to enter the address details at the moment of uploading or else the task would need to be later replaced if an address were to be added.

Well, not anymore! Here is how you can do this. First, make sure you are logging in as an Administrator user, then go to the Administration tab and select the option called "Maintain Task/Customer List" inside the Basic section:

Then, find the team and job that you wish to edit, in this case, we need to add an address to "Econz Office", found within the Team Horace, so we click on its Task ID:

As you can see, this task has no address yet, but we have a set of text fields we can use for this purpose:

Let's go ahead and add our address for this project, the coordinates will be added automatically once the system detects the correct address. When ready, we click on "Save":

Note that you also edit coordinates only, if so you desire, which is useful for rural properties which don't necessarily have a specific address.

Remember that adding addresses to tasks will allow you to incorporate additional functionality such as a whole plethora of custom rules that make use of the GPS location to triggered different types of alarms.

Let us know in case you have any questions or comments below. Until next time!

Office Admin Powerful Job Assignment

Hello everyone! We are bringing you a new enhancement for users with the Office Admin profile, normally when editing tasks or user events an Office Admin is constrained to only assigning from within that employee’s teams set of jobs.  This new functionality now optionally allows the ability for them to assign jobs from the set of all possible jobs (i.e. including jobs from other teams).

To enable this, log into the Web Portal as an Administrator user, then go to the Administration tab and click on Preferences. Find the option called "Enable extra Office Admin powers for Edit User Events":

Make sure to follow this guide to assign teams and users to Office Admins properly, in this case, our Office Admin has Region B only:

These are the current tasks for Region B:

But we know that Rufus Robinson worked with Region E performing the task "Penny Cafeteria", which is not in the list of tasks for Region B. So, here is where the magic comes in. We log in as an Office Admin and go to the "Edit User Events" screen within the Administration tab.

If we wanted to insert a task, we can now search and choose tasks from other teams. As we saw before, "Penny Cafeteria" is not within the jobs available for Region B, but by enabling this functionality, we can now edit that task and add it to his punches:

Here we can see how the task has been successfully added:

And this also applies to editing tasks:

That's it for this time, stay tuned for more news!

New Report: California Meal and Rest Report V2

Today we have a quick post to talk about a new report that we have incorporated into our system, the California Meal and Rest Report V2. If that name sounds familiar, it's because we previously had talked about the first version of this report, but this one has a couple additional features, to make the report even more useful.

This image is a big one, make sure to click it to view it better

This report provides the times that the breaks and meal periods were taken, following the order of First Break, First Meal, Second Break, Second Meal, as well as the clock in and out times.

Then, the following columns correspond to the Premium Pay End of Day Questions:

  • Anyone injured?
  • Did you take all breaks today?
  • Premium Pay?
  • Was this meal taken later than allocated at your election?
  • Was this meal taken later than allocated due to work requirements?

Notice how the "End Meal" column has some values in blue? Well, that means that you can click on them to view the signature for when the employee finished the meal before the expected time.

Finally, on the far right side you will see the Signature column, which will enable you to view the clock out signature provided by the staff.

That's it for now! Let us know in case you have any questions or comments down below.
