How to create views for your shop users

Dec 14, 2010 | JobTracker Tips

One of the features in our latest release is the addition of shop users and shop views. Shop settings give employees who’re not computer savvy a way to access your countertop software. It also gives you access to the real-time status of jobs in the shop without leaving the office.

Shop views show the shop users only the job activities they need to, and they can start and stop activities with a single, big button. This works great on touch-screens – you can mount an iPad or iPod in the shop with a dust-proof case, and with wi-fi access, you have a terminal that can be used by your sawyers, CNC operators, or production manager.

Here’s a 2-minute video that shows an example of setting up shop views and users. Before you can do this, you’ll also need to make sure you have an activity status that corresponds to “In Progress”.
