Scheduling

This tab covers time parameters.
Time prompt Select the appropriate interval for entering the job time from the drop-down box. This enables the job to be timed to the minute or, if more appropriate, to the hour or half-day. Alternatively request that the time is not prompted for at all.
Default time (HH:MM) Make sure that the time is entered in the correct format as it may be used for calculations. This is 24-hour clock format where H=Hour and M=Minute so that a 2 digit hour and a 2 digit minute are required, eg. 07:05, 08:00, 17:30, 23:15.
Item containing job duration Select the list of job durations from a drop-down list of items that have already been prepared as a list.  This is likely to be ‘day’, ‘hour’, ‘session’, ‘slot’ and is instead of completing the following prompt.  The number of minutes are entered in the list entry under ‘associated value’ and will be used for any calculations. 
Default duration (mins) Enter the number of minutes to be used as a default duration for this job. For example, an investigative callout may be billed at a minimum of 1 hour so enter '60' here for the number of minutes - if it takes longer then the user (ie engineer) can amend it accordingly.
End time prompt Select the appropriate interval for entering the job end time from the drop-down box. This enables the job to be timed to the minute or, if more appropriate, to the hour or half-day. Alternatively request that the time is not prompted for at all.
Default end time (if prompting) Make sure that the time is entered in the correct format as it may be used for calculations. This is 24-hour clock format where H=Hour and M=Minute so that a 2 digit hour and a 2 digit minute are required, eg. 07:05, 08:00, 17:30, 23:15.

Report

PDF format Select the appropriate PDF format from the drop-down list. You may wish to consult your Boris expert.

Attachments

Attach PDF of job to item

Select one of the items in the job definition from the drop-down list.  This item will then have a link associated with it enabling PDFs to be attached to the job.  This is useful for disseminating Health & Safety or location information to the device user.

Reassigned work

When reassigning, forward any copies of form to new user (1-3) Select a template from the drop-down list that will be sent with the existing form when forwarding a job to another user. This is useful for equipment lists that need to be completed before the user can operate effectively in the reassigned job.

Additional forms (2 tabs)

Additional form to allow (1-10) Select a template from the drop-down list that is allowable in the current job in addition to the original associated template. This can work in conjunction with Only automatically use the start of day option for this job, meaning that the user can choose to bypass the original associated template and use one of the templates listed here instead.
