In this article, you will learn how to update a job’s status.
What is a status?
Statuses — also known as parent statuses — are conditions you can assign to a job to describe the state of a job’s progress. They are a great way to help improve communication across your team, providing everyone with enhanced visibility on the current stage of a job’s development.
By default, you will be able to assign one of six statuses to a job in Workiz:
- In progress
- Done pending approval
Workiz also allows you to create custom sub-statuses.
To learn more about creating sub-statuses, please see this article.
Updating a job’s status
As mentioned, Workiz provides six statuses by default. You will not need to create a status within Workiz, but you will need to assign a status as desired.
- Open the job you want to update
- Next to Status, select the dropdown menu and choose your status
