Custom job maintenance updates
The Custom Jobs screen has been updated to use a new layout which simplifies the processes for creating and managing Custom Jobs. The changes are as follows:
- Price Type dropdown menu – Price types are now selected in a dropdown menu, in order to integrate the new Package Jobs feature
- Job Category dropdown menu – A optional job category can be selected for the job from a predefined list
- Active checkbox – Can be used to flag a job as active, deactivating a job will hide it, but not remove it. You can use this to toggle promotions and seasonal services on and off for example
- Larger grids – The size of the grids showing existing jobs, and the contents of the selected job has been increased and a search filter has been added to help you find the job you want to edit
The new Package Jobs feature allows flexibly-priced custom jobs to be created, these work in a similar way to fixed price jobs, but can contain parts with variable pricing, the price of which is balanced by varying the cost of labour.
For example, for a job set up for a fixed price of £150, which included a brake pad set, and the labour to fit it. If the part cost £60, the labour would automatically be adjusted to £90 to make up the total. If the brake pad set was £70, the labour value would decrease to £80 to balance the difference.
