Instead of monitoring time against specific Cost Codes or Projects throughout the day, do you prefer the approach of having hours allocated to jobs and cost codes documented at the day's conclusion? This article aims to shed light on the activation of the job costing prompt feature, providing your employees with the flexibility to allocate their time at day's end. It will detail how to turn this feature on, what the prompt looks like, and how your employees will use it.

Employees will only get the Job Costing Prompt if the Project, Cost Code, and Equipment are not required at clock-in and they do not fill in the job costing. You will need to check your Time Keeping Settings. If they are set to Required or the fields are filled out at clock in, the prompt will not happen at clock-out since the fields have already been filled in.
