Registration

Select this check box to allow workers to make registrations on an indirect activity.

System function

The system function that this activity relates to. This field is active only for indirect activities with registration type Job.

NoteNote

The standard value in this field is Jobs. The other options are used in a production environment if your legal entity uses manufacturing execution. They relate mostly to functions that are used with a barcode scanner, and they are relevant if your legal entity has not run the configuration wizard in time and attendance. You can use the configuration wizard to create system activities jobs. (Click Human resources > Setup > Time and attendance > Wizards > Time and attendance configuration wizard.)

The following are explanations for some of the options:

  • Clear – Can be used if a production worker uses a barcode scanner to scan production jobs to be started. If an indirect activity job with this function is scanned, the scanning clears the job list and the worker can start scanning other production jobs to be processed.

  • Info – Opens the Logbook form in manufacturing execution, where a worker can see a list of the time registrations made by that worker on the work day.

  • Switch bundle mode – Is used if a worker wants to add new jobs to an existing job bundle for manufacturing execution.

Cancel break

Select No if the activity is an ordinary break activity.

Other selections indicate that the purpose of the activity is to cancel breaks scheduled in the work time profile. Select Cancel one break, which will cancel the next scheduled break, or Cancel all breaks, which will cancel all remaining scheduled breaks for the work day.

Insert the number of minutes that are allowed for a worker to return after the end of the break, before a deduction in pay is made.

Approve switchcode
