Mobile Screen Configuration

Overview

The NoahFace Go App allows employees to record their work hours using their mobile phone, wherever they are. It can be configured to display one of the following screen types:

Once you have selected a screen type, you can further configure the screen by specifying appropriate screen details. The sections below explain the available options and syntax for each type of screen.

Clock In/Out

The Clock In/Out screen is used by employees to clock in when they start work and clock out when they finish work or take an unpaid break. This allows you to pay staff accurately for the number of hours worked.

If an employee is not currently working, the Clock In/Out screen will display a "Clock In" button. If they are currently working, it will display the time they started, the number of hours and minutes since they started, and a "Clock Out" button.

The text on the buttons can be changed by specifying the "in" and "out" options in the screen details. For example:

        in=Start Shift

By default, only one button is visible based on the last action performed by the employee within the App. If you have employees that use both the NoahFace kiosk and the NoahFace mobile App on the same day, you might prefer to always display both buttons. This can be done by specifying:

        mode=Manual

To specify more than one option, just comma separate the options. For example:

        in=Start Shift, out=End Shift, mode=Manual

Task Tracking

The Task Tracking screen is used to record the type of tasks being worked on throughout the day. This allows you to apply different pay rates to different task types, or to allocate the worked hours to different projects or cost centres.

If an employee is not currently working, the Task Tracking screen will display a "Start Task" button. If they are currently working, it will display the task they are currently working on, the time they started, the number of hours and minutes since they started, and both a "Change Task" button and a "Clock Out" button. Employees simply press the "Start Task" button at the beginning of the day, the "Change Task" button throughout the day as appropriate, and the "Clock Out" button when they are finished for the day.

The list of tasks can be configured by specifying the "tasks" option in the screen details. Each task can be either just a name or a name and a corresponding value, such as a cost centre (colon separated). For example, either:

        tasks=Kitchen; Tables; Counter; Delivery
        tasks=Kitchen:23; Tables:96; Counter:54; Delivery:14

You can change the terminology of "task" to something else by specifying the "name" option in the screen details. For example:

        name=Project

You can change the text on the Clock Out button by specifying the "out" option in the screen details. For example:

        out=Finished

To specify more than one option, just comma separate the options. For example:

        name=Project,
        tasks=Kitchen; Tables; Counter; Delivery,
        out=Finished

Job Tracking

The Job Tracking screen is used to record the time employees spend on each individual job (by job number). This allows you to measure and improving efficiency, or to pass on job costs to end customers.

If an employee is not currently working, the Job Tracking screen will display a "Start Job" button. If they are currently working, it will display the job number of the job they are currently working on, the time they started, the number of hours and minutes since they started, and a "Complete Job" button.

When a user starts a job they are required to enter a job number and optionally select a job type.

The list of job types can be configured by specifying the "types" option in the screen details (types are semi-colon separated). Each type can be either just a name or a name and a corresponding value. For example, either:

        types=Standard; Custom; Repair
        types=Standard:S; Custom:C; Repair:R

The selected job type is used as a prefix to the entered job number. So, using the example above, if a user selected a job type of "Custom" and then entered "1234" as their job number, the recorded job number would be "C1234".

The text on the buttons can be changed by specifying the "start" and "end" options in the screen details. For example:

        end=End Job

To specify more than one option, just comma separate them. For example:

        types=Standard:S; Custom:C; Repair:R,
        start=Begin Job,
        end=End Job
