Job Management

What is a job?

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 , or
  • 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   Job & Task Cheat Sheet   to see which fields are mandatory when setting up Jobs and Tasks.
