[Job Centre screen]

The Job Centre is used to monitor jobs within TSM from one easily accessible location. It is also a convenient tool to display a listing of all jobs that match selected criteria such as active, unallocated, jobs due, today’s jobs etc. The Job Centre can also be used to assign employees to jobs, to mark jobs as having commenced (for example, the employee has arrived on site), or change the status of the job.

The job list can be sorted using a combination of the settings on the Options tab and the filters, selectable using the dropdown menu in the top right-hand corner of the module. By opening a number of Job Centre screens at once, each with a different filter and combined with the Visual Assignment Scheduler, you can easily manage a busy job dispatch operation.

Menu Options on the Job Centre include:

Launches the Job Card screen and adds a new Job. The screen displayed will the last job card type opened (Service jobs, Contract Jobs, etc).

Opens the Job Card screen and displays the job currently selected in the Job Centre.

Launches the Contact Maintenance module and displays the customer for the currently selected job.

Pressing the Print button prints out a Job Centre summary report.

Use the Filters Option to create filters to use in the Job Centre.

Click to bring up the Columns dialogue which allows you to select which columns are displayed on the Job Centre screen.

Click to repopulate the Job grid based on the current filters. The Job Centre can be set to automatically refresh based on the value in Setup, and enable for each logged in user in User Options.
