Search deeper in Canned Jobs; WorkRequested?

Search deeper in Canned Jobs; WorkRequested?

Postby M_Int » Tue Jan 02, 2018 4:13 pm


Regarding the search function in the Canned Jobs list...currently we can only search in the Job# or Description field. :(

Is there a reason we can't also search in the labor line "Description," called Work Requested or Work Performed? It's a stored field correct, so could it also be searchable?(using the secret % sign we could easily search for terms we've stored in WorkReq/Perf).

Thanks much as always for the help.

I've not seen this request before. This work requested/performed data is stored and called up as text strings (100% variable because users free-form type anything) as opposed to lists like categories or the job names. That makes it a more complicated proposition. (high development estimate + low reward ratio)

I'd think good job descriptions would suffice. Perhaps other users can comment how they structure their Canned Jobs.
