Entering employee hours in Chronicle lets you generate payroll reports. In addition to reports you can keep track of how much the labor for each job and activity is costing, so you know whether or not you’re within budget (and determine if and how much profit you are making). Entering labor also enables Chronicle to calculate bonuses for employees who consistently work faster than the budgeted time.
To get the most benefit from Chronicle's time tracking capabilities, enter the amount of time spent on each activity at the end of every day. This gives you real time information on where you're at with each job's budget. However, if you prefer, you can enter several days worth of labor at once. This approach doesn't give you the daily analysis of where each job is at, but it still lets you determine at the end of the job whether you stayed within budget.
To open the Labor Manager, Click on the Red Globe in the upper right corner of the home screen. This is your Chronicle Tools Icon. A drop down menu will appear you can select Labor Manager. If there are no options in the drop down menu, see Accessing Your Tools List. Or go to the Home tab and click on Labor from the report buttons.
