Description: In this topic, the user will learn about the client transportation account type. Client transportation account type is associated with a service code, authorization, and a client. This account type is based on service code settings and can be payable or non-payable, billable or non-billable, and the unit type is miles (unit type dollars can be used as well). The client transportation account type is used when the employee is driving a client (while on the clock for an hourly shift) and needs to track those miles specific to the client and the authorization. Punch entries can be entered in real time in the mobile app or historically in the web portal.

*Please note: When entering a punch entry for mileage in the mobile app for multiple stops, follow the steps below in the Enter Client Transportation Punch in the Mobile App section, for each stop. If Start Client Transportation and End Client Transportation are not clicked for each stop, the mileage will be inaccurate as round-trip is not calculated.
