Clocking In and Out of a Work Order

Tracking time on work orders allow you to organize your schedule, organize labor costs and more. However, when faced with a list of tasks it can often slip your mind to check when the task was started and how long it took to complete. To solve this, clock in and out of work orders to avoid having to manually enter labor hours and eliminate the guess work!
