Scroll Prev Top Next More

When editing a job and adding stock codes, quantities and pricing, Jim2 will indicate if there is insufficient quantity of stock to meet the job requirements.


As a job progresses, stock codes are included to ensure all stock, labour, tests and checks are included in the finished job. Once all the codes are entered, they can be supplied or back ordered, priced and invoiced. Where there is insufficient stock quantity available, Jim2 can then report this information and ask the user for a specific response. There is a process of purchasing to meet the back ordered stock quantity requirements.

1.Open the required job in Edit mode.

2.Click in the Stock Code field, or press F4. To add a new line, press the down arrow or the Insert key on the keyboard.

3.Enter the applicable stock code.

4.Press Enter or the Tab key to move along the stock grid. Jim2 will display a screen detailing available stock. It will provide options including supply in advance, supply from committed on earlier jobs, supply only available (back order the rest).


You can set security to stop users from being able to supply in advance via Tools > Security > Jobs > Stock on Jobs, and untick Sell stock in advance.

5.Select Supply Only Available (back order the rest). Press Enter.
