Refresh from Database on Save

If two people are working on the same job card at the same time, you can check this box so that if one person saves the form, the other person will see the changes immediately. This option will slow the process down.

Labour is Time

If labour is time, then the booked minutes are converted to hours and transferred to the quantity field.

If not checked, then you can use the field for anything, for example, kilometers. Maybe minutes booked can be the beginning kilometers and minutes normal the end kilometers. Remember, you can change the names.

Structured Internal Note

Set it in Quote Options and/or Workshop Options.

The internal note on the quote or workshop will now change in that where you were previously able to type in freehand, there is now an additional field, and the information that is typed in there will record the time and date as well as who did it.


Go to the internal quote note.
