Tools Setups


Descriptions allow you to set up predefined common descriptions for faults and invoicing, which can be selected on jobs. This means staff don't waste time with repetitive data entry, or make spelling/typographical mistakes when they do.


setup descriptions


To add a new Description, simply click Add at the bottom left of the Descriptions Setup screen, enter your description, tick if it is to show in the Invoice Description field and/or the Fault Description field, and click Save.


group description


The Group field is not a mandatory field, and only relates to groups of descriptions. It can be used to flag if the description relates to sales or technical staff. It can also be used to mirror your Item#, so your staff simply select the description group that matches the Item# used on a job. This will ensure that the description is relevant to the job Item.



Note that the Group field is actually a free type field, ie. you can type whatever you wish in that field.
