New features

Job and Quote types now support 1-to-1 custom field associations

  • Building on existing functionality currently available in our Asset, Site and Problem modules it is now possible to associate different custom fields to different Job or Quote types, thereby increasing the overall usefulness of types

  • This functionality leverages all new interfaces as detailed in the Feature improvements section below

  • How does this affect existing types? All existing Job or Quote types will be unaffected, with all existing custom field associations retained

  • How does this affect existing Jobs or Quotes? All existing Jobs and Quotes will be unaffected, with all existing custom fields and custom field data retained
