Unscheduled Jobs list - How it keeps you in control

The Unscheduled Jobs list is one of your view options in the dispatch board. The unschedule jobs list will show all current jobs which are not in any job queues, and are not currently scheduled.

This means that any job that appears in this list needs your attention, and should have one of the following actions applied to it:

  • Job should be scheduled with client for a date for work to be completed
  • Job should be placed in a Job Queue while it's waiting (waiting for parts, waiting for client, etc)
  • Job is completed/unsuccessful and should be completed
Your goal should be to keep the unscheduled jobs list empty - as this means all jobs have either been scheduled or placed in a queue with an expiry date. 
As bookings occur, or as jobs expire they will re-appear on your unscheduled jobs list ready for their next step, so this screen becomes your to-do list for scheduling, calling clients regarding quotes, calling suppliers regarding part orders, etc.
