Setting up custom fields by job type

  • Updated

 

In this article, you will learn how to set up custom fields based on the type of job you are performing.

Workiz was designed to fit the needs of most service businesses, but you may find that your business needs a bit more customization when it comes to creating jobs. You can accomplish this by creating custom fields so that you can add all the extra information you’ll ever need for a job.  

But not all job types require the same sort of information. For example, a locksmith may require vehicle information when assigned to a job relating to car keys, but would not require vehicle information when assigned to a job to change the locks on a home.

Workiz makes it simple by allowing you to not only create custom fields, but also assign those custom fields to only appear for specific job types.
