We are trying to change the description field in the timecard.  We have found that the “Summary Day for:”  is very confusing.  We would like to make the Description field be filled with a single ‘ or a , .  This makes the Summary day for: go away.  Has any one defaulted the description or know how to.


My next project is to make overhead tasks not choose Billable when the employee uses them

Hi Michael, I think the answer you’re looking for may come by using Acumatica Translation Dictionary (I think the message you are trying to change is an unbound resource). 


Regarding the overhead tasks and billable status, I may be misunderstanding you but isn’t this controlled by setting Activity Types accordingly?


Hope that helps a bit,

Thanks Graham.

I took a look at your suggestions.

The default to the description for a task isn’t in the dictionary.  But I will keep looking

Your tasks associated with activities.  I am sure your right there.  I should have clarified that I was talking about Project tasks.

We found out that you cannot make tasks none billable in timecards.  You can only make earnings types unbillable.  I wonder how many customers will remember to change their earnings type when they do their timecard.  Our customers have 20 to 30 lines a week.  This sounds like its going to be a nightmare.
