Overview

The jobs module contains a standard jobs design that provides you with a set of standard details that you can use as part of a process to create and manage jobs.

Note

The job design may include custom details, which are not described in this topic, refer to your System Administrator for more information on custom details.

Mandatory details

The following two job details are mandatory for all jobs:

  • Job number - when you create a new job Alloy automatically assigns an job number. The job number is mandatory and unique and does not actually appear as a field that you can edit. The job number attribute can be inserted into the title field for each job, when it is created.

  • Status - The status field allows you to select from a list of statuses defined within the system.

Optional details

The following are standard job details that are optional, however, they may be configured as being mandatory prior to the installation of the system:

  • Related jobs - this allows you to select from a list any jobs that are related to the job that you are creating.

  • Attachments - this allows you to attach one or more document files, for example, images or documents that are related to the job you are creating.

  • Description - this allows you to enter a detailed description of the job.

  • Priority - this allows you to select a priority for the job you are creating.

  • Raised date - this allows you to record the date and time that a job is raised.

  • Estimated start date - this allows you to record the estimated start date and time for the job.

  • Estimated end date - this allows you to record the estimated end date and time for the job.

  • Start date - this allows you to record the actual start date and time of the job.

  • Completion date - this allows you to record the actual completion date and time of the job.

  • Target date - this allows you to record a target date and time for the job.

  • Price multiplier - this allows you to enter a percentage price multiplier (between 0 and 100) for the job. For example, where the job cost is calculated to be £100, a multiplier of 15 makes the final cost of the item to be £115.

  • Price adjustment - this allows you to enter a price adjustment to the final overall cost of the job, for example, you can apply a discount to the price.

Note

The Price multiplier and adjustment are applied in addition to any individual job work item costs.

  • Reports - this allows you to select any existing reports that have been raised and are associated with the job you are creating, see Creating job report.
