Use this form to register time, material consumption, and costs for production jobs, projects, and indirect activities. Workers can be set up for different levels of registration. For example, some workers may only be able to make clock-in and clock-out registrations. Other workers may need to register every time they start and complete a job, take a break, or participate in activities that are not directly related to a production job or project activity.
