eSUB Simplifies Construction Project Management with Daily Reports
In the past, one of the greatest challenges has been to compel our field crew to issue Daily Reports. It’s the classic Catch-22 scenario. We’re too busy in the field DOING the work that we don’t have time to DOCUMENT it. But, if we don’t document what happens on a daily basis, we take the chance of not getting paid for extra work in the field. Creating Daily Reports was a big headache because field personnel had to use multiple programs to collect and track information, or they just wrote everything on paper with no consistency for tracking progress in the field.
Designed For Subcontractors
eSUB knows that Daily Reports are one of the most critical aspects of any subcontractor’s business. Our new streamlined Daily Report module allows field personnel to enter multiple crews, update progress, and attach photos and track issues from any device. You can also configure the Daily Reports to automatically create time cards for the entire crew if necessary.
“The ability to track labor and costing differentiates eSUB from some of the larger softwares, like Procore, where that's made more for a general contractor, eSUB is made for the subcontractor, and that's when those cost codes become very important.”
Rich Kennard, Development Manager

One Page Management
With our Daily Reports module, you can enter all of the information that you’re tracking on a single page including information for weather, comments, crews, equipment and more. You can even track individual employees as well as other important criteria like their labor class, hours that they work each week and so much more.
eSUB’s Daily Report module also gives you added flexibility so you can add extra lines to track specific crews and other data that’s vital to your business. Then you can quickly populate Time Cards directly from Daily Reports and move onto getting your employees paid without having to manually enter in time from the field.

6 Simple Steps To Creating a Daily Report in eSUB
Let’s walk through creating a daily report in eSUB's Field Works mobile application. Once you've logged in, select your project and on the next page scroll down and choose the daily report option. Next, click on the plus icon in the upper right-hand corner.
Step 1: Save Time & Copy Existing Reports
From the next page, you can choose to select to copy from an existing daily report; you can change the date then add/edit existing project and workforce info once you've created your new report.
Step 2: Talk to Text
You can easily add comments using the “talk to text” feature without having to type all of your lengthy notes. It's amazing!
Step 3: Add Crew Information
You can then add in your crew information by clicking on the plus icon in the upper right-hand corner to enter and crew info.
Step 4: Enter Labor Activity & Hours
Enter your labor activity and then the employees that were on the crew with you. Include how many hours were entered so you can also track time and a half or double time - you can choose to track units if so desired then you can also track hours lost if work was unable to be accomplished. How cool is it that you can track this through your daily report. Adding in hours lost is going to require you to add a comment.
Now, that you've created a crew you can also add in subcontractor information with how many workers were there and any notes that might be needed.
Step 5: Track Equipment
You can choose to track equipment that was on-site (e.g., the mini excavator was there for a few hours), so you can add in any notes that might be needed. You can also choose to track the material type then your quantity.
Step 6: Attach Field Notes
You can also opt to attach field notes so you can select from existing notes or opt to create a new one once you've chosen to create a new field note. You can add in your image with annotated notes as needed. You can also add in text by using "talk to text" to avoid using the keyboard. Cool!
Voila! Your Daily Report was created at the jobsite in minutes!
