Watch an overview of production jobs in Workguru

Managing your production jobs are functionally exactly the same as a standard project.  Once the production job is created with its forecast output, task, product lines, it is ready to capture the relevant actuals: timesheets, stock usage and purchase orders in exactly the same way you would do that with a standard WorkGuru project.

Production jobs can be managed from the production jobs dashboard.

There is a shortcut to view completed production jobs and enter timesheets from the Actions button. Clicking on a production job number will open the production job detail page.

The production job detail page is similar to the standard WorkGuru project detail page. Production job details, quick actions, documentation and forecast vs actual widgets are all the same.  It is ready to capture time, stock usage and purchases.


Timesheets are added to a production job by the same methods as a WorkGuru project. The active production jobs will display with projects in the project dropdown of all timesheet entry methods, including the kiosk. The production job and then the task need to be selected to enter the timesheet time/length and notes.

Stock Usage

Stock used on the project is managed via the Use Materials button on the production job's quick actions menu just like a project.   The stock location and the Use All Forecast/Remaining Materials shortcuts all function the same. Material usage is logged with the user and timestamp in the materials tab just like a project.

Purchase Orders

Production job purchase orders are also raised just like a project.  The production job purchase orders are treated the same as a project - disbursement purchase allocating 100% of the PO value to the cost of the production job. Purchase orders can be raised from the Add Purchase Order button on the production job's quick actions menu or raised pre-populated from the purchasing buttons on the production job's materials tab.
