Weekly Update #131

Hello FieldClock Users!

We hope that everyone has had a productive and safe past week! As COVID cases continue to rise, we implore everyone to take any and all necessary safety measures to ensure the health of your communities and workspaces. And, of course, if there's anything that we can do to help with this process, do not hesitate to reach out!

On to the update.

Continued Improvements

We're happy to say that we continue to make progress on our migration project. As mentioned last week, we're finally nearing the end of the process and we appreciate your patience during this time. Once the project is finished, we expect that FieldClock will see many improvements to performance, stability and general function.

Did You Know…

Often, a specific piece type is always paid at the same rate across a large number of jobs. Instead of manually inputting the desired price every time, or needing every employee who's creating jobs to know that price, you can instead create a Pay Template. A Pay Template is a 'rule' that can be defined and will automatically set the price for piece types based on certain variables.

Pay Templates can be configured with the following rules:

  • Ranch
  • Variety
  • Task
  • Piece Type

All of the above is also optional to fill in, and will be set to 'Any' if left with no other value.

pay template

The set conditions will then be used to determine which piece types should be set in what way. Take the example image below: This Pay Template will set the piece type 'Bins' to a default rate of $5.00/pc, regardless of location, variety and task. Consequently, if this template were to be edited and the variety specified to 'Fuji', only jobs with that variety would be subject to the rule. Additionally, minimum and maximum values can also be assigned if a certain piece type's intended price should not exceed a limit.
