Labor Reporting Available on Anywhere for non work labor, i.e., office time, travel time, holiday

  • 1.  Labor Reporting Available on Anywhere for non work labor, i.e., office time, travel time, holiday

    Posted Thu June 24, 2021 12:56 PM
    We are working with a third party company to upgrade to Maximo 7.6 and also migrate from a custom built mobile solution to Maximo Anywhere. One big feature we would be losing in the ability to put in non work order labor into labor reporting or, should I say create a labtrans entry. Does anyone know of an attempt to add labor reporting to anywhere or does any one have a solution for time keeping without the tech having to log in to Maximo to do so? We have never given our techs direct access to Maximo, only through a mobile solution. Does anyone know of a stand alone labor entry app that works with Maximo?

    Thanks for any input you may have,

    Non work labor entry time is certainly doable.  You will have not a small amount of programming in-front of you to accomplish your goal.  Simple design to create time keeping can range from a whole time sheet capability within the app to just being able to change the LTTYPE value upon entry in the Labor Actuals screen.  

    The LTTYPE vale is right now hardcoded upon entry and you do not have access to change that.  But agin this is relatively straightforward to expose that attribute and override existing code to populate that upon data entry.

    I would suggest that you seriously at modification of the Work Technician app first rather than creating a new app or introducing a second app for that purpose.  You would hone have to reconcile the data entry from both apps to get what you need form a business/ back-office perspective making that phase of work much more difficult. Better to put the non-work labor entry into Anywhere.

    Please see this conversation for a little more insight on non-work labor entry Labor actuals are editable in Maximo desktop, but not in Anywhere.
