Understanding Jobs in shopVOX
In shopVOX, jobs are production orders. They are the line items from sales orders.
For example: You may have sales order #001 which consists of Banners, Business Cards and T-shirts. Each of these items are separate production orders. Banners, business cards and t-shirts are all produced at different time lines, in different manners, by different people, and using different equipment, so individually they are separate jobs. Therefore, this sales order has three different jobs within it and each of these jobs move independently through the job workflow process in shopVOX.
