Projects Task reportProjects Task report

Tasks are the things that need to be accomplished on work orders. The Project Task Report lists those tasks and provides the following details:

  • – indicates that the task was added directly onto a project or work order and did not come from a sales order
  • Task – the thing that needs to be completed. Sales Order tasks are usually the name of the item being installed. Service tasks are generally a description of the work to be completed.
  • ETC – Estimated Time to Complete as defined on each item. These times can be modified by a project manager as well.
  • ATC – Actual Time to Complete is a manually entered value on the task itself, usually by a technician
    • If the ETC or ATC is printed in red, that means that it took more time to complete the task than was estimated.
  • Priority – tasks can be prioritized using the list created at Settings > Pop Up Lists > Task Status
  • Assignee – individual tasks can be assigned to specific technicians. If no tech has been assigned to a task, it will display Anyone.
  • Status – the status of the tasks as set by the technician. Statuses are customizable by a system administrator in Settings > Pop Up Lists > Task Status.
  • Desc – this is where notes to the technicians will be displayed. Notes can be entered by sales staff on proposals and sales orders or project managers on projects.
  • Pictures – if a technician captures a picture for the task, it can be displayed here
  • Notes – any task notes will be shown here, including the name of the user who added the note as well as a date and time stamp
