I am also looking for something to help scheduling. What is this "recurring job" you speak of??

Yes, setup recurring job for mowing, then you can go into master schedule and get it to start/stop when the season is going and also even bump them to every 10 days or so later in the season.

It sucks when your working and it starts raining at 2pm ending your day.

Just easier for me to keep them all on Saturday and move them out to the days needed. Its kind of like having them all on a waiting list.
Gotcha, that would make it more confusing. I've never moved mine from there scheduled date week to week. If a job is done on Tuesday and rain pushes me back to Thursday this week, I just cut it on Tuesday next week and get it back on schedule.
