Setting or changing quantity for piecework


FieldClock allows you to edit the quantity for pieces produced in the field.  For example, you may have an employee who picked several buckets and you want them to show as a single "piece" with a quantity equivalent to the number of buckets picked.

If you are working a high-volume job where the employees will generally have very-large or very different quantities, you can specify that your piecework is "Variable Quantity".  When you have specified "Variable Quantity", the mobile app will prompt the user for a quantity value whenever generating a new piece record.

In the Mobile App

How To Edit a Single Piece's Quantity

  • Tap the Quantity button at the bottom
  • Enter the new quantity.
