Job Update Follow

You can use Job Update to manage changes in Jobs from a source Price List or a source Job Template. It can affect multiple Jobs at any one time.

For example you have an Item in Job A called Concrete Slab and insert that Item into Job B,
then you insert Concrete Slab into Job C from Job B. If you Update Job A, the remaining
two Jobs will also have the option to be updated. Refer to Fig 1 and Fig2

From the Job Manager window, select the source Job A and click on Update from the Update ribbon the click Update Job. 

Fig 1. Select Job and click Update > Update Job

 

Fig 2. Update Job window will list the Source Jobs and the Jobs linked to that Source Job

 

Job Update does not work in reverse, it can only update any source Job or Price List.
For example if you changed Concrete Slab in Job B then Updated the Job, then Job C would
update but Job A would not. View Fig 3 and Fig 4.

If you only changed Concrete Slab in Job C, Job Update would not update Job A or B.

Fig 3. Select Job and click Update > Update Job

 

Fig 4. Update Job window will list the Source Jobs and the Jobs linked to that Source Job

 

Job Update will not delete items from an Estimate, however it can delete items from a Rate Sheet.

You can update across multiple Estimating levels, so Items that were in the Estimate can be inserted into a Rate Sheet and still be updated.
