You can customize how the data is displayed on many of the pages in JobTracker by creating custom views. Each user can create views to focus on the data that they care about. You can look at some specific examples of  job viewscalendar viewsproduct viewsSerialized Inventory Detail View or review the general instructions below for creating your own.


  1. Views can be created on the Jobs, Accounts, Quotes, Calendar, Purchase Orders, Supplier,
    Inventory, Edit Prices, Edit Costs and Report pages. Depending on which page you want to create a view for, Go to Job::View Jobs, Calendar::View Calendar etc.
  2. Click the Options... button to define a view.
  3. The Options dialog box for each of the pages has slight variations, but here are a few concepts:
    • The first few selections allow you to limit the records that are displayed by selecting the values you are interested in for specific fields.
    • Filters provide additional selection criteria for your view.
    • Click the Select Fields... button to check the fields to display. Drag & drop fields to change the order.
    • You can change the number of rows that display on each page. If you plan to Import the Data into MS Excel make sure the rows per page is at least the total number of rows in your view.
  4. After selecting the options you would like, click OK. The page will now be displayed as you specified in the options.
  5. (optional) To save the view, click Save View... button, enter a name and select if the view should be shared or personal.
