The different options within the system set up area

The system set up area contains a variety of default settings relating to different areas of the system. These are categorised as below and can be accessed by selecting the relevant tabs across the top of the page as appropriate.

It is important to note that the majority of settings in these areas refer to setting the default value across the system for that item in your Joblogic.
Some settings can also be updated in specific areas such as directly against the job, customer or site to make them applicable for that entity only.
Additionally, these settings are universal across your dataset and so setting these defaults does so for all other users under your Joblogic account.

Please see below user guides as applicable for specific details on each tab within the system set up area.

System Settings

The system settings area consists of general default settings for the back office and mobile application. These include your Joblogic accounts culture, time zone and currency settings, enabling engineer tracking, non productive time defaults and enabling two factor authentication logins.

See here for specific details on system settings.


The financial area governs default financial data such as recording your company’s VAT number, default tax and nominal codes for different job cost and invoice line items and default pay band times and rates.

See here for specific details on financial settings.

Invoice Details
The invoice details area allows you to set default invoice details such as your bank details and payments terms.

See here for specific details on default invoice settings.

Similarly to the invoice details area, the quoting area allows you to set general default details but for quotes. For example, setting a quote default lifespan or adding terms and conditions as an automatic header or footer of the quote document.

See here for specific details on general quote settings.

Number Convention
The number convention area governs your item numbering prefixes and also allows you to set up your differing job types within Joblogic.

See here for specific details on item number prefix and job type settings.

The forms area allows you to set the point within a job visit that mobile forms are presented to your engineer’s and to mark whether that form is mandatory or not.
