The Job List screen is great, however I find it frustrating that I can't remove (hide) inactive jobs. I also don't understand why I can't make a Header Job inactive and have all sub-jobs be marked as inactive. This would save a lot of time.

Thank you for your post. I agree, it would be a good idea if you could have an option to only list Active Jobs in your Jobs list. Also to be able to mark a Header Job as Inactive, if all its Sub Jobs are meant to be Inactive. We request others who would like these changes brought about to please vote and comment.

It would  be great if you could be able to hide inactive jobs like you can in other lists in AR. So you can then view/print a list of active jobs only.

Hi Lisa,

 

If you go to Lists and select Jobs (which brings up all of the active and inactive jobs), then select "Print" (which brings up the report), then in the Jobs selection box untick "Show Inactive Jobs" you can select and print just the Active ones...

 

Cheers,
Danny

nothing seems to have been done about this - we have just started using Account Right 2019 and tyhis problem still exists. Is there a fix coming?

Inactive jobs crowd the screen. You can tab in cards for employees & customer & supplier for inactive and they dissapear . The job should clear a lot of clutter as multiple jobs for same location requests extra investigation as spacing does not allow for a complex description.

Seems like this should be standard and not something we need to vote or comment on. Also to be able to select multiple jobs and bulk mark inactive...

I would also be great if we could make a list of jobs inactive at the one time, rather than go into each job.  THere should be a tick box next to them all that you can tick and then say make all inactive.

Has anything been done yet to add this option?

Hi @Flow 

 

Good luck on that suggestion - but yes it would be nice along with a few other features in the job area.

 

However a work around - create a job called zzzJobs_Closed   - then when a job is closed just make it a sub of this and it should - I say should pop to the bottom.

 

If not - just put a zz infront of the job number name.

 

Jobs just hasn't had a facelift for eons.
