Timesheet & Project Management Blog

The goal of this blog is to provide tips and ideas for improving time tracking and project managment for our customers and other interested people.

Barcode Labels Report


Print barcode labels using a special report in ST. The report first asks you to choose a project. After choosing the project, you will get a page with barcode labels for that project.

The project name label is displayed at the top, followed by task names below it. The labels for *STOP* and *CLEAR* are printed at the bottom.

Employees begin by scanning their username. Then they scan the project name and a task. The timer will start. After completing the job, scan *STOP* to stop the timer.

Time logs contain the timestamps for the beginning and end of the job.



Print Barcode Labels From MS Word

It is possible to print barcode labels from MS Word. Watch the tutorial below to learn how.

Those labels can then be used to track time in ST. Just scan an employee name, a project name, and a task. The timer will start. Now go perform your task. When finished scan *STOP* to stop the timer.

All these barcode labels can be printed with MS Word. You can lay out a work order with the labels in the corner or bottom. Hand the work order to operators, and they can easily track hours for the job.
