Best Practices for Configuring Daywork Sheets

With the Daywork Sheets tool, you can ensure that everyone on your team is informed of the status of extra work without filling out paper sheets or tags.
For instructions on how to add the Daywork Sheets tool to your projects, see Add and Remove Project Tools.

1. Start by configuring your Company level information so you can enable your users and ensure information is consistent across your projects.
Do you want to create a new configurable fieldset and/or new custom fields to use with the Daywork Sheets tool? Have you set up Company Classifications and assigned them to your team so that it will automatically be assigned on Timesheets or a daywork sheet? Have you decided which users should be able to create and manage daywork sheets?


Create New Configurable Fieldsets and Create New Custom Fields.


Add a classification and assign it to your employees or workers.


Update and apply permission templates in the Company Permissions tool.

2. Configure your project to make it easier for the team on-site to select Employees, Equipment and Signees.
Have all employees and workers been added to the project? Has all the equipment on the project that is currently on-site been set up? Have you added who will verify sheets or who can authorise extra work?


Add workers to Crews or add employees to the Directory.


Add Equipment to your project with the Admin tool.


Add them to the project Directory with 'Read Only' or higher permissions to the Daywork Sheets tool.

3. Streamline communication between your office, the site teams and your customer. 
Do you want notifications for when a Daywork Sheet is created or verified on-site by your customer so you can take action?


Configure the Daywork Sheets tool settings to select who should receive email notifications when Daywork Sheets are created or verified on-site.

Need to get a better understanding of the status of daywork across your projects? Need to export Labour, Material or Equipment information into a spreadsheet? Need to download your Daywork Sheet for backup documentation?

  • For users to appear in the Daywork Sheets tool:
    • Add Employees on an individual project basis.
      • Go to the Directory, add or edit each employees user profile and under 'Personal Information', scroll down to mark the checkbox that says 'Is Employee of [Company Name]?’. The employee will need to be added to each Project Directory that you want to track their time for. See Edit a User Account in the Project Directory for more information.
      • Add a "worker" to the Crews tool. An email address is NOT required to create a "worker" nor do they need to be added to the Directory. See Add a Worker to learn more.
    • Select Employees from the Company Directory (only if the configuration "can be tracked on all projects" is marked).
      • Employees will be listed in the Timesheets tool for all projects if the configuration "Employees Can Be Tracked On All Projects" is enabled and they are an "Employee of the Company". See Track Employees To All Projects For Timesheets.
    • Select a crew (a group of employees).
      • A crew must first be created in the Crews tool. For more information, see Create a Crew.
