Creating A Job

The Job Creation page can be used to create a Job (and optionally locations and contacts) quickly. It uses the underlying configuration to determine what information to put against a job so that you can create jobs efficiently without having to enter more data than is strictly necessary.

To make use of the features outlined in this guide, ensure you have the necessary User Type Rights assigned to your user type.

Automated Features

The job creation process is designed with automation in mind. In order to minimise the amount of data that needs to be entered with each job creation, Oneserve makes use of associated mappings to determine various details without the need for manual data entry. The following elements are selected automatically during the job creation process:

  1. The Service for the job is chosen based on the first activity added to the job. This is configured on the activity page
  2. The Work Type for the job is selected based on the Work Types associated with the Service selected in step 1 and the Work Log Type
  3. The Cause is populated based on the causes associated to the Work Type (based on the Cause Order specified in the config). This can be overridden during the job creation process
  4. The Team will be assigned based on the Service and who has Primary Post Code coverage for that location.  You can set preferred suppliers against the site or the Work Type
  5. The Workflow will be picked based on the Workflow associations to Work Type and Supplier.
