Contract Hours - Field Descriptions

Use this table for reference when completing the fields on this screen.




Enter the regular hours worked and the regular pay rate. The system will automatically calculate the extension amount.


Enter any overtime hours worked ; the overtime rate defaults to 1.5 times the regular rate, but may be overwritten.

Double time

Enter the double time hours worked; the double time rate defaults to twice the regular pay rate, but may be overwritten.


Enter the number of hours worked by the contractor. This value will be updated to Job Cost history.


Enter the rate per hour worked by the contractor. This value is then used to compute the extension of the line to the nearest penny. After the subcontract hours and extension have been recorded, the Rate is redisplayed to the nearest 1/10 of a cent from hours and extension.


The extension computes automatically based on the hours and rate and rounded to the nearest penny. The extension amounts for regular, overtime, and double time will be updated to Job Cost history when the invoice is posted.

Message (name)

Enter the worker's name or a note about the labor. Entry in this field is optional. If you edit the text in this field, the Message field in the main screen will update automatically. Additionally, if the Message field is edited in the main screen, the changes automatically display in this field.

Labor billing code

Enter the Time + Material labor billing rate code, or press Enter to accept the software default from the Accounts Payable Installation screen of the company in which the job is set up. This field will not appear if this is not a Time + Material job or phase.

If this field is left blank, the system will update the A/P transaction to Time + Material files as an A/P transaction. If a billing code is specified, the update to Time + Material will store the entry as a PR transaction with the applicable billing rate associated with the code.
