Field Definitions: JC Jobs Form

The following is a list of field descriptions for the JC Jobs form. Many of the descriptions include links to other topics that provide additional information about or related to the topic.

Job

Use this field to assign a unique job number.

Job Code Length and Format

The length and format of your job codes is set up when your system is installed. Job codes generally have multiple parts separated by dashes to allow sub jobs and sub-sub jobs to be set up within a job. For example, a project with multiple buildings could be set up as follows:

Job:

1025

Industrial Park

Sub-job:

1025-1

Building one

1025-2

Building two

Sub-sub-job:

1025-1-1

Bldg 1, 1st floor

1025-1-2

Bldg 1, 2nd floor

Note: Once established, the format of job codes must not be changed. Job number previously used error message

You cannot enter a job number that exists in the JC History by Job table. For example if you purged a contract/job but not the contract/job history, you will receive an error message when trying to create a new job using that number.

To fix this issue, use the JC Contract Purge form to purge the contract/job history. You will also need to make sure all related AP, PO, and SL detail is purged for the contract/job using the purge programs in the AP, PO, and SL modules.

JC Jobs

Construction Type

Construction Type drop down in the JC Jobs form, PR Info tab.

Used by the Payroll module for certified reporting purposes. Only required if sub-jobs for this project represent different types of construction (that is, distinct wage determinations).

Select the type for each job. The PR Certified Export - eMars report (U.S. only, ReportID 1315) will then break out your payroll data by construction type as needed, displaying the appropriate value for each employee wage-and-hour record in the Construction Type column. This meets the requirement for projects governed by multiple wage determinations (wage schedules).

Valid types are:

  • B-Building

  • D-Dredging

  • H-Heavy

  • R-Residential

  • W-Highway

Note: Many of the fields on the JC Jobs form are also on the PM Projects form. When you make a change to this field on the JC Jobs form, the system immediately updates the same field on the PM Projects form.

PR Leave Level

PR Leave Level field in the JC Jobs form, PR Info tab.

When you process PR Auto Leave, the system compares the following two rates and uses the highest of the two in leave accrual calculations:
  • the rate set for the employee in the PR Employee Leave form, or if there is not one there, the PR Leave Codes form
  • the rate associated with the leave level code (as set in the PR Leave Codes form, Leave Level Overrides tab)
If the job leave rate happens to be the highest of the two, the amount of leave accrued by the employee is also based on how much they worked on the job.
Note: Job-specific Leave Level overrides affect only accruals . These accruals cannot override limits, nor do they impact frequencies or usage.

Note: Many of the fields on the JC Jobs form are also on the PM Projects form. When you make a change to this field on the JC Jobs form, the system immediately updates the same field on the PM Projects form.

Use Weighted Average Overtime Rates

The Use Weighted Average Overtime Rates check box on the JC Jobs form, PR Info tab.

Select this check box to use weighted-average overtime rates when applying auto overtime to timecards posted to this job. Because this option is used in conjunction with the Use Weighted Average Overtime Rates option in PR Craft Classes, you must also check this option for each craft/class to which this job applies.

Once you select this check box, the Average By field is enabled, and you must select the weighted-average overtime calculation method (Week or Day). When the system applies auto overtime to timecards posted to jobs, crafts, and classes for which both Use Weighted Average Overtime Rates options are selected, the system uses a weighted-average overtime rate adjustment based on the Average By calculation method you selected. If both options are not selected, regular overtime rates are used.

Do not select this check box if you are using regular overtime rates.

For more information about weighted-average overtime rates, see Weighted Average Overtime Rates.

Note: Many of the fields on the JC Jobs form are also on the PM Projects form. When you make a change to this field on the JC Jobs form, the system immediately updates the same field on the PM Projects form.

Average By

The Average By field on the JC Jobs form, PR Info tab.

This field is only enabled when you select the Use weighted average overtime rates check box.
  • Week (Default) - Calculate weighted-average overtime based on the employee's weighted-average regular rate for the weekly or bi-weekly pay period.

  • Day - Calculate weighted-average overtime based on the employee's weighted-average regular rate for the day.

Note: It is suggested that the option you select here be assigned to each applicable craft/class associated with this job to ensure the correct weighted-average overtime rate is used. If you set one option to Weekly and one to Day, the systems uses the daily weighted-average rate.

Sequence

Enter the sequence number (0-255) for this reviewer. If left blank, defaults as sequence '1'.

For unapproved invoices only, if you are using a hierarchical method of invoice approval, this sequence number should represent the order in which this reviewer is to review and approve invoices associated with this job.

For example, if this reviewer must approve an invoice/invoice line before anyone else, enter the Seq as '1'. Reviewers with sequences greater than '1' (i.e. 2, 3, etc.) will be unable to review and approve an invoice/invoice line until this reviewer has marked it as approved. If not using a hierarchical method, all reviewers can be assigned Seq '1'.

Note: If the reviewer is authorized to review and approve both unapproved invoices and purchase requisitions, assign the sequence number based on the numbering system designated for unapproved invoices.

Press F5 in the Reviewer field to access HQ Reviewers.

JC Jobs

Reviewer Type

Specify the reviewer type.

  • Invoice – Select this option if this reviewer is authorized to review and approve (or reject) unapproved invoices associated with this job. Reviewer will be assigned automatically to all 'job' lines on unapproved invoices that reference this job (in AP Unapproved Invoice Entry).

  • Purchase – Select this option if this reviewer is authorized to review and approve (or reject) purchase requisitions associated with this job. Reviewer will be assigned automatically to all 'job' lines on requisitions that reference this job (in PO Requisition Entry).

  • Both – Select this option if this reviewer is authorized to review and approve (or reject) unapproved invoices and purchase requisitions. Reviewer will automatically be assigned to any 'job' lines on unapproved invoices (AP Unapproved Invoice Entry) or requisitions (PO Requisition Entry) that reference this job.

 

 

JC Jobs

Optional Reviewer

The Optional Reviewer check box on the JC Jobs form, Reviewers tab.

Select this check box to designate this reviewer as optional for all invoice lines to which this reviewer is assigned. This allows for one of multiple optional reviewers to approve invoice lines with a given approval sequence. Changing this setting here does not affect existing invoices; changes only affect invoices created after the change.

As long as more than one optional reviewer is assigned to each invoice line’s approval sequence, only one reviewer must review and approve in order for the approval process to advance. However, if the only reviewer on an invoice line’s approval sequence is an Optional Reviewer, their approval becomes required in order for the approval process to advance.

Setting ALL reviewers on a sequence as optional does not eliminate the approval requirement for that sequence. If an invoice line’s approval sequence contains multiple reviewers, the following rules apply to allow the approval process to advance.

  • if ALL reviewers on a sequence are set as optional, at least one must approve
  • if ALL reviewers on a sequence are set as non-optional (Optional Reviewer check box is not selected), all must approve
  • if some reviewers on a sequence are set as non-optional and some as optional, all non-optional must approve
