Record Time Against Different Locations, Jobs, Dockets, and Labor Metrics

In Employee Timesheet, you can record your worked time against different locations, jobs, dockets, and labor metrics:

  • Locations: Dayforce defaults to your main, or primary, location for each shift, but you can change this when you’ve worked somewhere else.
  • Jobs: Dayforce defaults to your main, or primary, job for each shift, but you can change this when you’ve worked a different job. For reporting purposes, it’s important that you record work against the job you actually performed during your shift. In some cases, this can impact your pay.
  • Dockets: Your organization might use dockets to enter the amount of work you produce during your shift, such as the quantities produced on different assembly lines, or the number of customers served during your shift. Entering time against dockets, and the quantity produced, can impact your pay. Depending on your organization’s needs, Dayforce can be configured so that employees are paid some piece rate for each quantity of work produced in different dockets, such as an extra fifty cents for each assembled unit produced in a manufacturing plant.
  • Labor Metrics: Your organization might use labor metrics to track a variety of information about your work.

Before You Begin: The specific locations, jobs, dockets, and labor metrics that you can record time against on the timesheet have already been set in Dayforce. For more information, talk to your supervisor.
