How to create a job

What is a job?

Jobs are the main activities that employees do. A single job is made up of a task, at a location, and at a specific time. Below are all the inputs that comprise a job:

  1. Date: the day the jobs is taking place on
  2. Ranch: the field the job is taking place at
  3. Block (optional): if applicable, the field within the ranch that the job is taking place at
  4. Task: the activity being performed
  5. Variety (optional): if a piecework job, the variety being picked or worked on
  6. Crew Boss (optional): the employee overseeing the job
  7. Color (optional): assign a color to the job for ease of finding it in big lists
  8. Hours Offered (optional): the number of hours offered to employees at this job
  9. Pay Type: hourly job, piecework job, or hourly + piecework incentive
  10. Notes (optional): a simple text field where you can input arbitrary notes for the job

Piecework Options

If the job is a piecework job, 'Piecework Options' will appear. To proceed, you must first select a piece type. Once that is complete, you may enter the price you'd like to pay per piece.

There are three different ticketing options to choose from:

  1. Fixed Quantity: this is automatically set by default and will generate a single piece per scan. This style is good when you want a checker to confirm each piece that is produced.
  2. Variable Quantity: this option allows the number of pieces produced in the field to be edited. This is good for high-volume jobs, such as pruning, where the checker may not verify each individual piece.
  3. Shared Quantity: This allows multiple producers to be scanned to the same ticket. When the ticket is created, a piece record will be created for each producer with a quantity of 1/n - n being the number of producers.

Use pre-printed tickets: Select this option if you are using your own barcodes. This is options, and FieldClock will create piece numbers for you if you don't have your own pre-printed tickets.
