Fields on the xqtime window

The xqtime window is divided into two major screen panels (see figure 3.5).

Figure 3.5: Qtime window

The topmost panel contains notebook panels that contain information pertaining to the client being charged for the project:

panel is the default panel and contains the client's name, client id, company, tax exempt number, social security number (SSN), customer type, customer class and referred by. The client id field is a mandatory field field as distinguished graphically by the darker shaded entry. This client id field is a read-only field that is automatically populated by xqtime. xqtime does this to ensure that all client ids remain unique and to ease data entry for the xqtime user.

The lower portion of the xqtime window contains the individual jobs (or projects) being worked for the client noted in the upper portion of the xqtime window.
