Introduction

Following the meeting of Oct 18, and further analysis of data capture requirements, the previous two time sheet entry screens are being consolidated into a new format, which will allow for concurrent data capture of employee, sub-contractor, Georgiou equipment and hired equipment time sheet entry.

Time Sheet Entry

Each element of data capture will be presented to the user (site supervisor) as a dropdown. This will act as a speed-up of processing as well as immediate data validation.

Section

The most significant change is that between the Georgiou employee and its sub-contractors. This will provide for clear data entry, and help focus the user on correct data entry. The subcontractors will be presented on a tab of their own, as will Georgiou and Hired equipment.

Section

The equipment tab will immediately show the actual equipment that is on this site.
This serves as a control on data entry and presents a clear image of what actually is being used on the job.



Speeding up Data Entry

To expedite the entry of data between days, a "Copy" button is provided to allow for the copy of time sheet data from a previous date to the date being entered.

Duplicating Data Entry

As the expectation is that most shifts will be copies of very similar data to that of the day / period before, each data entry cell is easily copied from its predecessor with the following shortcuts.

WIP : TODO The following items have been discussed as requirements for this screen

  • Allow for the entry of multiple times per employee per day
  • Function to allow the site manager (user) to dynamically add / remove elements of their dropdowns.
