What is a Subtask Template?

Subtask Templates allow you to pre-define a subtask or series of subtasks that you commonly use in your jobs. That way you can quickly insert them into jobs.

 You can insert the template or series into any job to save time on subtasks you typically assign to standard jobs. 

For example, for a standard service call, you might create a Subtask Template with the following series of subtasks for your service techs to follow. 

1. Diagnose Issue
2. Plan Repair
3. Provide estimate to customer and receive sign-off
4. Repair Issue
5. Inspect unit for quality and functioning
6. Invoice
