    SAP you can, in fact related to holidays.

    at the begining of the season, I update the "master" schedule. I already knwo ahead of time that the 4th of july is on a thursday thisyear. and not only will that effect all customers on thursdays. but may effect wenesday and friday customers as well. so make the adjustments now, to the master schedule.

    when I add a cusomer to a "thursday route" (or any other) i no longer have to remember to manually change the holiday...its already done in the master. when july comes the route is already planned for the nessesary adjustments....and this is true with any other holiday this year.

    Service auto pilot is priced based on your size. I researched and tried a of them...and went with sap. I am extremely happy. Yes there are things they could make better and i know every day they are actively working to. I love that i can access my business info from any computer..tablet..or smartphone since it is web based. It has functionality in botb areas i was looking....invoicing and scheduling. It may be a little more pricy than some...
    But without spending k$$$$$....it is definitely money well spent.

    I'm not sure they are... Are you there Jobber???

    This is key for us. If you could sell a business a software program that when followed to your instructions, will put that production information into the hands of the business owner - people would be crazy not to buy your system.

    Hi Hi Hi,

    Hey guys! Yeah we're definitely listening *trucewhiteflag*— for some reason LawnSite isn't automatically sending us the thread update notifications like it usually does, so I'm just manually checking around when I can. Sorry for the delay!

    1. Equipment Maintenance Tracking - This is on our radar as we have had one or two requests for this. I will be honest with you though, based on feedback - this isn't a top priority for us so it will be a while out.

    2. Start/Stop Button on Time Tracking - While we do have a way to enter this now, we agree that it can be a bit cumbersome. This is something that we do have near the top of our list that more people have asked for to help them with job costing. Of the 3 features mentioned, this will be here first.

    3. E-mail Tracking - Every interaction with the customer related to quotes, billing etc. in Jobber is stored and readily available in the client view. However, we don't have a way to link email correspondence that you are having outside of Jobber. Once again, this is something we are aware of but we will be focusing on making Jobber tick perfectly from the inside first.

    Thanks for the feedback everyone. We truly appreciate it! I'm glad to see that there is some very intensive investigations out there and our favorite R+D partners on LS are working hard! ;)

    Cheers,

    Jeff

    This all makes sense, as I feel the START/STOP feature is by far the most important and useful of any of these features.

    I played with the new time & expense tracking the other day before my trial ran out. I liked it, but was surprised when I was unable to add a photo of a receipt to an expense from the iphone view.

    I did really like how on a maintenance account it will list each visit with the applicable time spent onsite.

    Hi Merrimacmill,

    Yeah, sorry about the picture deficiency. The problem is that the mobile access through Jobber is web based and the iOS mobile operating system won't allow access to the camera roll. This is supposed to be addressed in the newest version of iOS and ultimately will be included when we launch the Jobber mobile app.

    In the meantime, you can still add a photo from the desktop interface for Jobber. It is a two step process (if you have to send the pic from your phone first) which we loath but will have to do for now.

    Would you like me to extend your trial? Obviously you need to have proper time to experiment with it and take it for a test drive. With all the new improvements we have made lately, I'd be happy to give you more time. Just PM me with your company name that you signed up for the free trial if you would like me to extend it.

    Thanks,

    Jeff

    I decided to go with clip. It has some flaws but it has a lot of features as well.
