Learn how to easily delete a job in Workiz.

Updated over a week ago

In this article, you will learn how to delete a job in Workiz.

Deleting a job in Workiz is simple, but strongly discouraged. Deleting a job will result in the loss of all of the data linked to that job, which will negatively impact the accuracy of your reports in Workiz. Once you delete a job, it cannot be reversed.

Tip: If you would like to remove a job from your schedule or reports because it has been canceled, we recommend that you update the job's status to Canceled.

You can also create a sub-status to add more detail to explain why the job was canceled (e.g., Canceled - Arrived late, Canceled - Too expensive, etc.).

Deleting a job

If you still want to delete a job, the process can be done in just a few steps.

Note: Only users with a role of admin can delete jobs in Workiz. This capability cannot be enabled for other roles.

  1. Open the job you want to delete

  2. Select Actions > Delete Job

  3. Select Yes delete it

The job will now be deleted and all of its data will be permanently erased.

Canceling a job

If you would like to cancel a job instead, this process can also be done in just a few steps.

  1. From the job page, select the dropdown menu next to Status and choose Canceled

Canceling a job will allow you to understand how many jobs your business is canceling on a regular basis.

The Job Statistics report will provide you with a visual representation of how many jobs your business has canceled over a certain period of time.

With sub-statuses, the Jobs report will provide you even greater insight into the reason why your business is dealing with so many cancellations.
