Calendar Overview

This article covers the basic features used on all the calendar views in Jobber. 

Types of calendar items

On the calendar, different type of tasks will show up in different colours:

Visits show up in green. These are visits associated with jobs for clients. They can be assigned to users and marked complete.

Basic Tasks show up in blue. Basic tasks can be assigned to users and marked completed. They are not used for invoicing, so are great for in-house tasks. 

Events show up in orange. Events are seen by all everyone on the team. They can be used for company wide reminders.

Reminders show up in red. These are used for invoice reminders or reminders to follow up on a quote.

Requests show up in indigo. These are Work Requests that have an on-site assessment scheduled. They can be assigned, so requests work well when you need to schedule someone to go out to a property to make a quote.
