quote cost tab info



There is a tab within Jobs called Linked Jobs. When a job is created from a quote, a link is placed in the Linked Jobs tab of that job, where you can right click to display the quote.



In a multi-user environment where others could be adding Jobs at the same time, it's a function of Jim2 to monitor the sequence of unique Job numbers issued at all times. If a user creates a Job from a Quote and then wants to Cancel that job for whatever reason, they may only do so by applying a Job Status of Cancel to that Job. Jim2 will time/date/initial stamp the cancellation, log the history of the cancellation, and lock the Job from further edit. It will now only be available to view.
