    Do any of you guys with crews us a work order form? Such as telling what, where, when and how for the work during the course of the day.

    We run a route but I find guys write stuff done on a notebook and bookkeeper is always asking what this and that mean. Need to simpliy the situation.

    We use Quick Books Pro and utilize the "TO DO Notes" section. Each day the "reminder" pops up telling me what is due that day. I print that out for the 2 crews. That gives them the list they need. We made a Daily log form. Many columns wide but it includes....
    Type of work
    Time spent
    Original Due Date
    Next Due Date

    My crew leaders are commission based and have the ability to bid in the field. We make them a part of the business...not an employee of the business.
