LYNQ includes a number of different status codes which determine the status of employees or equipment.  For example, when a user clocks in to the workbench in the morning and no jobs are running, their status will be displayed as Indirect Downtime -No Task.  If the user clicks on the meeting button, their status will change to Indirect Downtime – Meeting.  Throughout LYNQ you will see references to employee and equipment status.

Statuses are required for these functions:
  • Clocking
  • Change Status
A status includes settings that define whether the clocked in time will be counted and whether the task time will be counted.  Statuses can be configured to show other on-screen elements.  For example, when the user changes their status to meeting by clicking on the meeting button in the workbench, the back to previous, messages and end day elements are displayed.  This helps you to build a process workflow for employees and equipment into the workbench. 
Depending on where your employees are located, you may be required under state law to provide minimum rest periods.  You can configure a status to include a minimum rest time.

To configure a minimum rest time for breaks:
  1. Select Settings
  2. Select Advanced Settings
  3. Select Workbench
  4. Select Statuses
  5. Select a Status (i.e break)
  6. Select Edit
  7. Select the Minimum Rest Time checkbox
  8. Enter a value in the Minimum Rest Time field. (i.e 00:15)
  9. Select Save

Next you will need to turn on the checking of minimum rest times for any on-screen elements that appear when the user clicks on the break on-screen element.  (i.e back to previous and end day)

To enable a minimum rest time for related on-screen elements:
  1. Select Settings
  2. Select Advanced Settings
  3. Select Workbench
  4. Select Elements
  5. Select the Back to Previous on-screen element
  6. Select Edit
  7. Select the Status Change row click on the Settings button
  8. Change the value in the Apply Minimum Rest Time from None to either Warning or Prevent
  9. Select Save

Now when the user returns from break before the minimum rest time, the appropriate warning or prevent message is displayed in the workbench.

To properly configure additional status codes, it is important to understand the relationships between statuses, tasks and diversions.  Statuses have a relationship with a task code.  A task code has a relationship with a diversion code.  It is advisable to configure these in reverse order.  Starting with diversions then tasks then statuses.

To create a new status:
  1. Select Settings
  2. Advanced Settings
  3. Select Workbench
  4. Select Statuses
  5. Select New
  6. Enter name in the status field (i.e. Team Meeting)
  7. Enter a description in the description field
  8. Select the relevant pre-defined task code (i.e Team Meeting)
  9. Select if a minimum rest time is applicable
  10. Select Clocked Time Counted
  11. Select which on-screen elements this status will show when active
  12. Select Save
