Creating a “Job” allows you to group multiple projects together for reporting and searches. For example, if you have two projects for a customer and you want to report across both projects, enter a job number on Project 1 and enter the same job number on Project 2.
Here’s how you do it.
Create a Job
You can create Jobs in two places within DocBoss.
The first option is via the Settings/Admin Menu > Lists > Jobs
Then click “+” to Create the new Job
Alternatively, you can Create a new Job in the Main screen of a project. Click the “+” beside Job, name it and save.
Assign a Job to your Project
Once you have created the job, you now need to assign it to your project(s). To do so, navigate to the main screen on your project and select the job from the list and “Save Project”.
Now you are ready to run reports and searches by “Job”.
