Autodata Labour Time Adjustment

Autodata Labour Time Adjustment is a feature that ensures that the actual time it takes to complete a job is captured when labour times are pulled from Autodata. The goal is to ensure that the garage does not undercharge for labour hours. Here’s how you can change the time:

  1. In the top-right corner, choose the search icon, enter Labour Time Adjustment, and select the related link.

  2. Select the group of customers in the Customer Category Code field to adjust the labour times when the data is pulled from autodata. If you want to introduce the adjustment to all customers, leave this field blank.
  3. In the Hours From and Hours To fields, you define the range of job hours to which the time adjustment should apply. For example, you could specify that jobs with hours ranging from 0.5 to 3 should receive a 30% increase, and so on. To apply to all jobs with any hours, enter a Zero in these fields.

  4. Set the Value Type field to be either Percent to increase the labour time by a specific percentage, or Hours to increase the labour time by a certain number of hours.
  5. Then, in the Increase Value field, enter the value of the Percentage or Hours.

Note:

Some autodata repair times maybe cached in the system, and to make sure that the changes you make have immediate effect consider using the Clear Autodata Cache. In the Labour Time Adjustment page, click on More Options, Choose Actions and select Clear Autodata Cache.
