Keep track of important client details whether you’re at the office, on the way to a job, or out in the field.
In Jobber, clients are the building blocks for work. Requests, quotes, jobs, and invoices are all associated with clients. Clients are also where details like contact information and property details are recorded.
Creating and editing a client
Click the Clients tab on the sidebar. This will take you to the client index page where you can view your client list. In the top right of this page, click the New Client button to create a new client.
This will bring you to the client create page, where you can see both the client details and the property details.
On the client create page, you can enter the following details:
- Title: This is an optional field, you can select Mr., Mrs., Ms., Miss., or Dr., as a way to address this client.

You can turn the toggle switch to ON if you would like to send text messages to this number. If the client has requested to not receive text messages (by replying "Stop" to messages from Jobber), you will see a message letting you know that they have requested not to receive text messages. If the client wants to resume receiving texts, they can text "Start".
- Email: Multiple e-mail addresses of different types can be added
- Automated notifications: When turned on, these toggle switches enable this client to receive notifications for assessment and visit reminders and job follow-ups.

Lead labels show on your client list and on the client profile, you can track and manage your clients and leads. This way you can tell at a glance who is an existing client and who is a prospective client allowing you to prioritize your time and resources.
In order to track which people have had work done, the label for "lead" will appear until one of these actions are taken:
A job is created for them
An invoice is sent to them
Their quote is approved
These actions represent the jump from a lead or prospective client to a client. Once one of these actions have happened, the "lead" label will be removed from the client's profile.
Clients can be marked as Archived if they are someone who you no longer consider a client but would like to keep a record of them and the work performed. Archiving a client removes them from your client list, but does not delete them. You will still be able to see their past requests, quotes, jobs, and billing history and they will still be able to access their client hub.
From the clients profile, click More Actions > Archive Client.
