check-in and check-out

Most jobs done by providers on the Field Nation platform get billed on an hourly basis. This makes accurate check-in and check-out times very important. Field Nation offers an interactive method so both the buyer and the provider have an accurate record of hours worked.

 

special instructions from the buyer

The main basis for ensuring accurate records is confirmation. By requiring the provider to call when checking in and out, we create a duplicate record. Since the records should match (plus or minus a few minutes) both the buyer and the provider can have confidence in their accuracy. The confirmation process starts with the buyer issuing special instructions.
