Is it possible to direct labour costs to more than one activity code within a job?

Thanks

    What do you mean by "activity code" ? Are you referring to an Account ?

    Not directly, but you can allocate labour costs to multiple accounts/jobs/classes/payroll items by using a separate line for each, as the allocation is per-line.

    I have a project that is run over various stages, 1 -6.

    I would like to track the labour charges by each individual stage all under the same project.

    Eg.

    Project Number 101

    Stage 1 Labour

    Stage 2 Labour

    etc.

    Yes, you just need to allocate the applicable Stage ... in the Customer:Job column on the transaction. To split between multiple stages, you will need to apportion per line eg

    If an employee has worked 30 hours with 15 hrs under Stage 1 & 15 hrs under Stage 2, you would need to record the hours via 2 lines as 15 hours each.

    Is this labour in Payroll or on an expense (Bill/Cheque) ?

    It's in payroll. As far as I'm aware we can only enter the time at a project level but I will check your solution.

    Edit to note: I do not wish to create multiple job numbers for each stage

    I'm a bit confused by your query ... You don't have to give them specific numbers but you would have to have the stages listed as something somewhere (eg sub Customer:Job of Project Number 101) otherwise there's nothing in the system to track ?!

    Project Number 101

    > Stage 1

    > Stage 2
