Enter Daily Field Report screen

Use the Enter Daily Field Report screen to create daily field reports. A daily field report records the conditions, activities, and events on a job site for the day, including employee time cards and work in progress (WIP) details. A daily field report can communicate information about the job site to those not on-site and provide historical documentation.

You can import the following data from a daily field report on the Import Data screen:

  • Employee time card data, including equipment usage associated with employee time, to an employee time card

  • Work in progress data to update the project work in progress

Daily Field Report data entered on the Enter Daily Field Report screen is not validated, so you can enter as much information as possible. ProContractor validates employee time card data and work in progress data when you import it.

You can sync daily field reports and time cards entered in ProContractor Mobile. For time cards entered in ProContractor Mobile, if a daily field report exists for the project and date, the time card is added to that daily field report. If a daily field report does not exist for that project and date combination or if the daily field report has already been imported into ProContractor, a new daily field report is created in ProContractor.

You can use the Enter Daily Field Report screen to modify daily field reports that were created in ProContractor Mobile and synced with ProContractor.

You can create a PDF file of a daily field report form that you can view, print, or attach to an e-mail. ProContractor automatically attaches the PDF file to its associated record in a binder item.

Tip: You can use the Modify Forms screen to modify the format and layout of this form.

You must have the software required to open a PDF file—such as Adobe Reader—installed on your computer to be able to view it. You can also send an e-mail with the PDF file as an attachment. You must have MAPI-compliant e-mail software—such as Microsoft Outlook—installed on your computer to send an e-mail message with an attachment.

Note: To open the Enter Daily Field Report screen, click Projects > Project Documents > Enter Daily Field Report in the All Tasks pane.
