Create a way to add a tempory day labor employee from Crew Clock or Kiosk
We use a lot of temporary day labor employees. Sometimes they may only work 1 or 2 days.It would be great for us to have the ability to add an employee on the fly. We use the quickbooks integration and I understand that the employee wouldn't map to a QB employee. But neither does a job when created on the fly. A notice is created when exporting and it requires to be fixed,
Couldn't there be a way to create hours worked for a temporary employee using maybe the Kiosk feature. Just add a first and last name log-in and log-out. Then when exporting make the decision whether this employee will added as regular employee? But at least you can record the hours worked and how much to pay them or how much to bill to the job later. Many times these guys don't have email addresses or a smart phone. Sometimes we just pull in 3 extra guys for 1 day on a specific job and then never use them again.
Using the workaround provided below is going to be the best solution for the time being.
It would be quicker than adding employees all the time not to mention being cleaner without have multiple temp employees on the timesheets, schedules and reports.
Makes sense Sam, thanks for sharing the idea. We'll consider ways to possibly help out in that situation with product changes. One workaround idea for the time-being might be to create a generic employee or two that could be used for this purpose. Then at least you'd have their times recorded. Also worth noting, is that although you cannot currently add employees from the mobile app, it is possible to do so from mobile by logging into the website from your phone or tablet. You'd just add the employee from the mobile browser, then go back to the app, perform a full sync using the Sync option, and the employee would then be available to clock time to via KioskClock or via CrewClock. Hope that helps. It's also likely that on a future update, adding an employee will be possible from the mobile app.
