Actions on Jobs

You can perform a number of actions on jobs, including:

  • Edit
  • Close Job
  • Re-open Job
  • Generate Invoice
  • Download PDF
  • Collect Signature
  • Send Follow-up Email


To get to the Actions button on a job, click on Jobs from the menu. Then click on a job. The Actions button is in the top right. 



To make any changes to the overall job, click Actions > Edit. Here you can change the job's schedule, description, custom fields, number, and invoice schedule, then update the job. 


Close Job

To close a job click Actions > Close Job. 

If the job needs to be invoiced, then it will go to 'Requires Invoicing' status, once it has been invoiced it will then go to 'Archived'. If the job does not need to be invoiced then it will go to 'Archived' right after closing it.  


If there are incomplete visits on a job when you go to close it, this popup box will come up:


  • Remove Future Visits, Complete Past -  Will delete all of the incomplete visits in the future, and complete the visits that were scheduled before today. 
  • Remove All -  Will delete all of the visits—both in the past and in the future—that are incomplete.
  • Mark All Complete -  Will mark any incomplete visits as complete—in the past, and the future.


Re-Open Job

If you need to re-open a job after it has been close to edit it or add more visits, click Actions > Re-open Job. 


Generate Invoice
