Jobs are the ‘bucket’ that are used to capture all time and costs associated with undertaking a job or project.
What is a task?
Jobs are broken down further into Tasks.
Every Job must have one (1) Task
, as it is at Task level that Job costs and times are captured.
A Task can not be created on it's own. A task must be linked to a Job. For further details visit
Action: Create a Task
Task costs are then 'rolled up' to total against the Job. For example:
Task 1 - $5,000.00 in costs
Task 2 - $ 250.00 in costs
Task 3 - $2,700.00 in costs
will give a Job Cost Total of $7, 750.00
To make things even easier, QicWorks will default the first Task on the Job with the Job's Title. Simply type over the top of the task name and click save to override this feature.
A Task could be specific to a particular:
Job Step Requirement i.e
lay foundation slab for house
Trade Type i.e
task specific to capture costs incurred by boilermakers
Pay Rule i.e
afternoon shift with penalties
Use Job and Task Templates to standardise your job structures. (Not to mention save time)
We recommend that to get the most out of the QicWorks platform, jobs should be constructed in accordance with our minimum requirements. Check out our
