We recently gave our technicians iPads, and in order to be sure they were entering hours correctly we developed a report using the Transaction Detail Reporting function to give to them each week or so.
1. Reporting Period = Last week
2. Transaction Date
3 through 12 leave open
13. Choose the employee you wish to look at
14 through 17 leave open
18. Choose "Detail Analysis"
19. Will automatically go to Excel Spreadsheet
The report's Pivot Table and Pivot Chart can then be manipulated to show a report of where hours were spent during the previous week - by Purpose Code :-) This allows our technicians to double check their entries for the previous week and make any necessary changes while it's still fresh in their minds.
