Recipe 6. Time Cards > Administrator Recipe: Task Detail

Administrator Recipe: Task Detail

Each time card record represents a single job or task undertaken and completed by an employee. (The terms task detail and time card are used interchangeably in this recipe.) In the previous page, we included a link to a detail page so that the administrator could see all the information on a chosen time card. Now we’ll build that page. In addition to the data entered in the original time card—like the employee name, job code, and hours—a calculated field displays the number of weeks into the project. Finally, the Task Detail page will also contain a link to update the information in the record.

Step 1: Implement Task Detail Design

The Task Detail page needs to display basic information about the time card while remaining flexible. Most of the data pulled from the recordset will be displayed on a single line, such as the employee name and job code. However, one field—the task description—could run several sentences or more. The layout design, like the nested table used in the snippet, must be capable of expanding to handle the additional content.
