Default service sales tax

Sales tax used by default for services on workorders. Select an existing created Tax Code that you want to default for labor selected in a workorder. Note you can still change in the workorder.


Default parts sales tax

Sales tax used by default for parts on workorders. Select an existing created Tax Code that you want to default for  parts selected in a workorder. Note you can still change in the workorder.




Scheduled / Labor Default Minutes

Enter in minutes the default time span for a Start and Stop Date/Time for Labor and for Scheduled in a workorder.


For example, if you enter in 90, that means if you enter in a Start Date/Time for Labor of 9:00AM the Stop Date/Time will automatically pre-enter 90 minutes later for you at 10:30AM to save typing time. You can of course still edit the Stop Date/Time.




Scheduled Default Time

Enter the default time you want the Scheduled to default to when created via the service workorder entry screen.

Leave empty if you want it to default to midnight

Do note a Scheduled User record will default to today's time if today's date is selected when creating the Scheduled user record, regardless of what you enter in this business setting.




Service workorders start number

You can enter whatever number you want here as the Service Workorder starting number. Do note that it must be greater than existing used numbers for Service Workorders. Once you have entered a number and saved, you can not enter a smaller number.


NOTE about starting numbers – when editing starting number for workorders, quotes, purchase orders or inventory adjustments, do be aware that the value displayed in the Global Settings screen is the existing highest existing number for that table.


Even if you edit the Global Settings starting number, until you make a new workorder, po, quote etc, the highest existing number is still the same as it was previously in the record.


So if you edit the starting number – you need to make at minimum one new workorder or new quote, etc to actually “set” the new starting number as the highest existing number.
