Hello FieldClock Users!
We hope that harvest is continuing smoothly, and that everybody's staying safe amidst the rising heat waves and fires across the west. Today's newsletter is a short one, with our usual overview of upcoming features and a quick break-related feature highlight.
On to the update.
Did You Know...
Break Templates can be created and configured in FieldClock to vastly ease the process of adding breaks to jobs, allowing the creation of intuitive templates that can be used to populate breaks at a job. To get started, navigate first to the 'Admin' section of the site and click the 'Non-Productive Time' tab. Here, you will see the ability to create two things: Non-Productive Time Categories and Break Templates.
Non-Productive Time Categories
Non-Productive Time Categories are essentially used to identify types of breaks. For example, a Non-Productive Time Category could be set as 'Lunch', 'Rest', 'Travel' or any other category that is required. When creating a NPTC, the name of the category and a color can be selected.
Break Templates represent the entirety of a 'break', including what 'type' of break it is (the Non-Productive Time Category), any notes specific to the break, its duration in minutes and whether or not its paid. Below is an example of creating a break that represents safety/ladder training, lasts for 30 minutes, and is paid.
Adding to Jobs
Once created/configured, Break Templates can be quickly and easily added to jobs. To do this, navigate to a created job and hit the 'Breaks' tab, and then 'Add a break'.
You can then either add a custom break (specific to this job, configured on the spot), or select one of the Break Templates created at your company.
