- Updated on 04 Jan 2022
- 3 Minutes to read
Joblogic provides the ability to create and save jobs which can be assigned a variety of labels and details used for searching, categorising, reporting and detailing the work. A new version of the ‘Log Job’ screen has been constructed within the back office system which can be used as an alternative to the previous version. The general functions, sections of the page and fields required for logging a job have not changed. However, display and visual changes have been made in order to improve the user interface of this area. In addition, one area of the page has had an update in functionality, this being the 'Contacts' section. Users still have the ability to use the previous version of the ‘Log Job’ page, if desired. This guide details the differences concerning the new ‘Log Job’ user interface. For details on the previous ‘Log Job’ page and guidance on how to log a job within the back office of Joblogic, refer to the How to Log a Job (via the Jobs Area) - User Guide.
Accessing the New ‘Log Job’ User Interface
The new ‘Log Job’ user interface is located in the same area as the previous version. To access, navigate to the ‘Jobs’ dropdown within the left side main menu and select ‘Log Job’.
The user will then be directed to the new ‘Log Job’ user interface.
Differences in the New User Interface
The general functions, sections of the page and fields required for logging a job are the same as the previous ‘Log Job’ user interface. Predominantly, visual and display changes have been made, these being that the different sections within the ‘Log Job’ screen now have their own tab headers towards the top of the page.
Selecting each tab will direct the user to that section's applicable area within the page. For example, to navigate to the job allocation area, select the ‘Job Allocation’ tab from the headers across the top of the page.
Each section of the screen has been allocated more space on the page and they are now vertically ordered.
The right side scroll bar can be used to navigate up and down the page as with the previous user interface.
The one area where functionality has changed is the ‘Contacts’ area.
This area now has a search filter box whereby keywords can be searched in order to present specific contacts to assign to the job.
A ‘Show Selected Contacts(s) Only’ tick box filter has also been applied allowing users to only present the contacts which have been marked with a tick for allocation to the job.
These changes to the contacts area will assist in instances where there are a high volume of contacts allocated to the job or a high volume of potential contacts to allocate.
Navigating between the Alternative User Interfaces
The previous ‘Log Job’ user interface can be navigated to and used by selecting the ‘Change To Old Version’ toggle button towards the top right corner of the ‘Log Job’ page.
The new user interface can be switched back to via the same toggle button.
