Complete Guide to Location Details

Location details allow you to enter the information for a location, specify where the location is based on the address and GPS, and what cost codes can be used with a location.

As there are multiple tabs for location details, we have broken them down for easier reading.




  • Location Name: A mandatory field for the location that will be shown in ExakTime Connect and ExakTime Mobile.
  • ID: An optional field to denote the location ID.

  • Category: An optional drop-down field for use with reports and when viewing the location list.
  • Time Zone: The time zone that a location is located in. Used for Scheduling.
