I am trying to find the best way to track shop labor. Its very difficult to get a straight answer.
Here is the scenario:
We have Sage 100 contractor
We have Sage SSO
We have an in-house shop and 2 mechanics and 100 pieces of equipment.
How can we track "shop labor" by Employee, by Equipment, by Hour.
My 1st thought was to create a "DUMMY" job in Sage.
Dispatch the DUMMY job to the Shop employees.
Have the Shop Employees create a Daily Field Report with Assignment Time records for all of their labor.
They would apply Cost Codes, and Equipment records.
I could then input this into Daily Payroll.
HOWEVER, this method, does not work -- because labor that is tied to a job automatically gets associated to "Direct Labor" expense account.
I would like this particular job to hit the "Equipment/Shop" expense account.
I don't think it's possible to make an exception for just 1 job?
How do most people - track Shop labor by Equipment?
There has to be an easy way to do this?
