Job data allows the display of job information for the job being viewed. This job may be one from an external system or it may be from within Boris’s own Job Dispatch Module. For displaying the base job information (ie. customer, location and date) use the “Output field” item type. Use “Job data” for additional fields which are part of the job definition, or for job audit trail information.

Don't keep previous result when part of a document lifecycle

Tick this box if you DO NOT wish data collected in this template item to be copied to any jobs created directly from the original form.  This is useful for a repeated task (such as booking in/out a rental item or repeated delivery) where the data remains the same but a sign-off is required so this box may be ticked for Date, Surname and Signature.  Please note that if a transformation option is applied to the newly created job, this setting may be over-ruled.

Additional display information for list items If the job data being display is from a list then there may be other information related to the list entries that you wish to display. For example, if the list is a set of products then you may wish to display the product manufacturer and unit type along with the product code.
*Unique name

The unique name must be entered for each item and is a mandatory field. The name is used internally and so is not generally of importance. A default value is generated by the system automatically. You may wish to override this value to have a “nicer” name if the field concerned is part of a calculation or if you are exporting the data to another system.
