When workers create registrations for time and attendance, for example on a project, a value is also created for each dimension.

The dimension values are defined either for the worker, or for the selected job. In the Time and attendance - parameters form, you set up which dimension values to use for various jobs or activities that relate to time and attendance. The following path shows how to open the Time and attendance - parameters form. Click Human resources > Setup > Time and attendance > Time and attendance parameters.


Dimensions can be defined for different types of jobs or activities, such as projects and indirect activities.

Dimensions can vary, depending on the types of indirect activities.

Dimensions can be combined. For example, if no dimension is defined from the job, dimensions from the worker may be used instead.
