Enter Job Time (Field Tickets) in Mobile View
Enter time, equipment usage, production and start-stop time for jobs and phases using the mobile view on the Field Management Mobile app.
By default, job time submitted on the mobile app automatically creates a field ticket in the web portal. If you submit time for multiple days, the portal creates a separate field ticket per day and job (time submitted for multiple days is not combined into a single timecard template). However, you can configure your portal to route labor to grid timecards instead of field tickets. See Configure Field Management Mobile in the Portal for details.
