A template is a sample to create new jobs using pre-existing fields and values. In a template, you set the appearance of a job and possible resolutions to it. Also, in the template you set the report fields, choose which one must be filled to successfully complete the job.


To create a new template, click on the Add template button.


Enter the name of the template and job type (all possible types can be configured in the menu Settings Jobs Types). Add a short description of the job in the Description field. 


⚠️In the mobile application, the assignee will be able to see the name of the template and the description. He won't be able to see the type of the job. 


⚠️ All the information you will enter using the fields in the template will be automatically copied into the job created using this template. If you already know how long will every job takes, you can enter its value into the Duration field.  Now when you create jobs with this template, you won't have to enter duration each time. You can also assign a specific worker (or team) in the Assignee field if all the future jobs will be assigned to him.

  

Choose resolutions for assignees to use when they complete the job (resolutions can be configured in the menu SettingsJobsResolutions).


In the job report, you can add all the necessary fields. The assignee will have to fill them to complete the job in the mobile application.





Click on the Add button and the template will be created.
