Logging Indirect Hours

There will be times when a mechanic will perform a job off-site and will not have access to the shop terminal to clock on and off. Perhaps the mechanic is attending RTA's Annual Users Conference, out sick, or on vacation and that time needs to be recorded in the system. Whatever the case may be, the time can be entered through the Enter Mult Indirect Hrs option (WPE). Select this option and the Mechanic Indirect Hours window will be displayed.

  • Enter the mechanic number or press F1 to select a mechanic from the lookup list.
  • Select the radio button for the desired indirect labor code.
  • Enter the starting time (hours and minutes) for the job. Enter this in military time format.
  • Enter the total amount of time spent on the job (hours and minutes)—this is the length of the job, not the ending time.

Click the OK button to record the transaction. This time is now accounted for on the time card and various reports. Repeat this process until all necessary time has been logged as desired.
