What are Job “types”?

I’mOnIt! has different Job types to provide efficient ‘pathways’  to address the variety of scenarios you face every day.

On the Control Panel they are distinguished by colors:

  • ClassWide Job
    • A Job created at the Class level.  A ClassWide Job appears on the Control Panel as it’s schedule dictates.  Its creation and any subsequent changes automatically apply to all Fixed Assets in the Class.  (Quite a set-up timesaver!)
      • Example:  All vans in your fleet are included a Class called VANS.
      • You create a ClassWide Job for routine service every 10,000 miles. 
      • The Routine Service Job automatically created for all of your vans.
  • Standard Job
    • A Standard Job is established for an individual Fixed Asset and also appears on the Control Panel as it’s schedule dictates. 

      • Following the Example Above:  One of the vans in your fleet has a pneumatic lift for loading and unloading heavy items.
      • The lift must be lubricated every 90 days.
      • You create a Standard Job for the lubrication for this individual van.
      • This Standard Job will continuously appear every 90 days  
  • OneTime Job
    • A OneTime Job addresses one-time situations that come up in which a job needs to be scheduled once (usually at the discretion of the manager or supervisor.)

      • It appears on the Control Panel only on the date scheduled
      • After the job is completed — it does not appear again.
      • Example:  A delivery driver reports that his van's brakes are beginning to squeal.  The supervisor enters a OneTime Job for the following Monday for the mechanic to check the brakes.   
  • Immediate Job 
    • An Immediate Job addresses an immediate situation. 
      • You create an Immediate Job to enter a job that you want done right away.
      • A Work Order is produced immediately and the job appears on the Control Panel
  • Quick Job  

    • A Quick Job is a job that was not previously entered but has already been done by the time you get notice.
      • You can enter a Quick Job when you want to capture the fact that the work was done and document the costs and parts used
      • It does not show on the Control Panel.
  • Follow-Up Job
    • A Follow-Up Job is automatically created when you designate any job for follow-up.
      • It will show in the Control Panel based on the follow-up days that you set.
      • Example:  You repair a leak in a cooling unit and you would like to be reminded to go back in three days to check the coolant level to make sure the leak was completely fixed.  
  • Future Job

    • If you want a job that you have entered to appear on the Control Panel a few days ahead of time, this is called a Future Job.
      • This feature is a valuable benefit for managers who have a need for ‘lead time’.
      • Example:  You replace all of the filters in your HVAC units every 90 days, but you do not keep a supply of filters on-hand.  You designate the filter change job to appear the Control Panel five days before it is to be done to allow yourself time to order the filters.
  • Warranty Job  

    • A Warranty Job is a OneTime Job, that shows a watermark of “WARRANTY” on its work order.
