6 Equipment Work Order Time Entry Mobile Applications

This chapter discusses these topics:

Important Note:

Before using the mobile applications, Oracle strongly recommends that users have a complete understanding of how to use the associated processes and applications in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne base software.

For additional information about the processes and applications associated with the mobile applications discussed in this chapter, see:

6.1 Equipment Work Order Time Entry Mobile Applications Overview

You use the Equipment Work Order Time Entry mobile applications to enter, search, edit, and delete equipment timecards. The smartphone and tablet applications enables you to enter time against a piece of equipment, and also update and review each timecard's work date, employee hours, work order number, pay type, operation sequence, equipment worked and hours. You can use the filters or history to search for equipment timecards.

This table lists the applications that are available to review existing timecard information and to enter new timecard information for employees:

Type of Application Additional Information
Base EnterpriseOne application To update existing timecards, and to enter new timecards for equipment work order time entry, use the Speed Time Entry program (P051121) in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne system.
Tablet application Equipment Work Order Time Entry (M0511211)

To download the application to your tablet, search on the following text in the application store:

  • JD Edwards Work Order Time

Smartphone application Equipment Work Order Time Entry (M0511212)

To download the application to your tablet, search on the following text in the application store:

  • JD Edwards Work Order Time


6.1.1 Differences and Limitations: Equipment Work Order Time Entry

Mobile applications are intended to be a simplified version of the applications that are available in the base software. In most cases, these applications provide a subset of the functionality available in the base software.

The functions of Equipment Work Order Time Entry mobile applications are not different from base EnterpriseOne applications. However, Equipment Work Order Time Entry mobile applications do offer the user a subset of equipment work order timecards information. Not all the work order timecard information available in the base software is available in the mobile applications.

6.2 Setting Up the Equipment Work Order Time Entry Mobile Applications

Before using the Equipment Work Order Time Entry mobile applications, verify that the processing options for each application are set correctly. The processing options for both the tablet and the smartphone applications specify which versions of the base EnterpriseOne applications the mobile applications use.

The system administrator must set the processing options for these mobile applications before the applications are made available to end users.

See Setting Processing Options for the Speed Time Entry Program (P051121) in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Time and Labor Implementation Guide.

(Release 9.2 Update) You can use one of the following options to scan barcodes of equipment number:

  • Disable the Bluetooth option in the settings on your device if you want to use the native device camera to scan the barcodes of equipment number.

  • Enable the Bluetooth option if you want to use a Bluetooth-enabled scanning device to scan the barcodes of equipment number.

To scan barcodes using the Bluetooth scanning device, you must configure the scanning device to the mobile device.

6.2.1 Setting Processing Options for the Equipment Work Order Time Entry Mobile Tablet Application (M0511211)

You use processing options to specify default processing information for a program.

6.2.1.1 Versions

1. Speed Time Entry (P051121) Version

Use this processing option to specify which version of the Speed Time Entry program (P051121) the system uses. If you leave this processing option blank, then the system uses the version ZJDE0001.

6.2.2 Setting Processing Options for the Equipment Work Order Time Entry Mobile Smartphone Application (M0511212)

You use processing options to specify default processing information for a program.

6.2.2.1 Versions

1. Speed Time Entry (P051121) Version

Use this processing option to specify which version of the Speed Time Entry program (P051121) the system uses. If you leave this processing option blank, then the system uses the version ZJDE0001.
