Job categories are another level of job grouping available for analysis purposes. Unlike the job types and properties, the job category does not control any aspects of a job, if is used purely for filtering and reporting purposes. Job statuses are also used as a filter in the My Jobs form, and the Bulk Stock Check and Bulk Processing wizards.
In the setup form, there is an Active column which allow a value to be activated or deactivated. It does not control the job or subjob. If the value is set to inactive and there are jobs or subjobs that have the value assigned, Eralis Job will provide a warning. However, it will still allow you to deactivate the value. In such a case, the value will remain available on the jobs that it is currently assigned to.
The options will be displayed in the order in which they were entered. This is relevant when they are displayed in list boxes or combo-boxes. The move-up and move-down buttons on the right-hand side of the form allow the company to control which order they are displayed in.
