Calculate Driving After Job

  • Updated

There may be occasions when you wish to include the cost of the driving time after a job to the total cost of the job itself, for example you may wish to charge the cost of driving from the customer's premises back to Head Office. Providing that you have a version of the app newer than V.659 this can be done as follows:

  1. Create or edit a Job Type. Navigate to:[Top menu] Profile (icon) Admin Settings [side menu] ScheduleYou can now choose to either Add a new job type or edit an existing one.
  2. Once the desired Job type is open, click on the Device tab as seen in the example below. If you tick the checkbox against 'Resources can record driving duration after job completion' this will then add an additional checkbox option below it entitled 'Resources can change the time when recording driving duration'. Both of these should be ticked and then saved.
