Entering SM Work Order Timecards

If you have purchased Service Management (SM), you can enter service timecards in PR Timecard Entry.

You will enter timecards of this type only when you are capturing labor hours for work performed on an SM work order. To capture labor hours for jobs or equipment, use the Job or Mechanics timecard options. Time entered for all timecard options will be added together to determine hours paid for the employee.

For more information about job and mechanics timecards, see Entering Job Timecards or Entering Mechanics Timecards.

Note: You can also capture labor for SM work orders directly in SM Work Order (on the Work Completed tab). Work completed labor entries will update PR My Timesheets. Once the timesheets are approved (in PR My Timesheet Approval), they can then be sent to a timecard batch for processing (using PR Timesheet Send).

The following instructions detail how to enter service timecards in PR Timecard Entry. Because data entry will depend on the display options you selected in PR User Grid Options, the steps below may not reflect your grid setup. However, they do include required fields. For more specific information about a field, refer to the F1 help.
