Schedule Activities

Job Activities keep track of what needs to happen and who is going to complete the tasks in each Job.

Template, Fabrication, Install and Invoice Activities are already created in your Systemize database, and are automatically added to new Jobs. Many Systemize users only schedule these steps over the course of a Job, while others require additional steps. See Related Articles below for more on creating Activity Types.

Using  Auto-Schedule saves time and ensures Activities get tentatively scheduled. If you're already familiar with the Auto-Schedule feature and you want to change the rules or turn it off, see the Related Articles below.
