   Use Special fields to improve workflow between teams

Ever wondered which Jobs needed to have Briefs chased up? Or which Team or Employee should look at a Job when client approval is received?  Special fields (aka Job Details) can be added to your Jobs or Address book Worklists. Use them to identify Dates or Action Items about your jobs. 

Change a Job Status with a related Date or Assigned Employee

  • Set up Job Statuses to reflect your business processes. 
  • Set up Job detail fields like the examples below. 
        • When a Job status moves from Awaiting Approval to Client Approved, a Date or Team member Custom Field can be added. 
        • When a Job status is Awaiting Brief, a custom Date field called Brief Due Date gives more context for teams monitoring to know when to chase up the brief. 
  • Monitor Job Detail fields in your Worklist(s), so you know what needs actioning.
