Add Hourly as unit type for haul/freight
There is Unit and Load for hauling type but another option that happens frequently is by the hour. I realize upon ticketing the hours wouldn't be known at that time, so there would need to be a field in Ticket Edit or Mass Edit that would allow someone to come back into that ticket and add the hours later before billing.

Agreed. May be better options but I created products for HR rates with hr. as unit type at product level, basically removes use of freight & enter hours as net units. But would need a separate entry field in both ticket entry & mobile app for an hour freight type. To separate the units of material per ticket from the hourly units per ticket. I'm sure start and stop time per job could be tracked on the app for total hr. time, but would need an entry field or hourly punch card button to start and stop and stop time per job because currently time tracked would probably reflect the total time per job, but the billed hourly time often starts on the jobsite, not at the job or driver's start time. Additionally, if conditional rules could be used price adjustments, so hrs. over a certain # could be surcharged for an OT rate, that may fix issue we have entering 2 tickets for what is actually 1 HR ticket for union drivers. 1 ticket for 8 hrs and 1 ticket for hrs. over 8 charged a higher rate
Even if hourly is not fully functional within Fastweigh, having this as a U/M as soon as possible will help those (us) when exporting ticket data for billing into another ERP system have a different "tag" for these types of haul. Per Unit (tonnage) and Per Load handle the other types but hourly needs to be an option. Again, if we could at least have that as an option for U/M for now while still considering or configuring the rest of entering hourly entries, that will help us with our export of data. Thanks!
