Job Group

Creating a Job Group will allow you to group together all required parts, labor, notes, etc., for a specific repair procedure in order to separate items used for different repair procedures on the same work document. (Example: A Job Group labeled "Brake Job" might include part items such as: brake pads, rotors, drums, shoes, etc.; labor cost; or notes that include wear observations, etc.)

Shop Job

A Shop Job is a commonly used Job Group that has been prebuilt and saved in order to quickly add it to a new work document so you don't have to add each individual line item every time you work a similar job.
