Create a new job type

Viewing and creating job types in the Skedulo web app.


The Job Type records are used to reflect individual types of services that need to be delivered as part of a work order. With the aid of job templates, each job type can have independent input fields and scheduling requirements as well as specific equipment lists.

When you first install Skedulo, some standard job types are pre-set. These include:

  • Installation
  • Upgrade
  • Break Fix
  • Maintenance

These types don’t have to be used if they don’t suit your organization. If additional types are required, they can be created on the Job Types page.
