Canned Jobs

Canned jobs is a great way to make estimates and invoices with just a few clicks. The combination of parts, labor, notes, and sublet allow you to create specific jobs and prices or build a base template for common services. Either way, you save time on each repair order.

If you use Propack, then creating a canned job template for your orders give you the ability to reschedule common services. Once the follow-up service is scheduled, they will receive an automatically sent text message reminding them about your shop.

  6. Click “exit’ and ‘done’
  7. And now it will be on your quick menu under the job number you gave it
