Currently, it is not possible to share views. Saved views are unique per login.
There can be several reasons for this but the primary reason is that the Client is missing a transaction. The Client balance is the total of all transactions on file for the client. It is recommended to review the transaction history to see where something might be missing.
This dropdown is controlled by two locations: within the Employee profile and on the Settings > Sales Rep screen. First, navigate to Team > Employees > Select the employee > Click Edit > Select the User Settings tab > Select the checkbox next to "Is a Sales Person."
Second, go to Settings > Sales Rep > Inactive tab. If the employee is located under the inactive tab, select their name, put a checkmark next to "Active," and then click Save.
This selection is for filtering only. All Employees will need to be designated as Hourly or Salary under Team > Employees > click on the Employee name > Edit > Payroll/Job Costing tab. Then when you are on the Accounting > Payroll Report you can add a filter at the top for "Wage Type". This is useful to filter for Hourly only so your Salary employees do not show up on your Payroll Report.
You will want to use the Calendar Event feature for this.
This is most likely due to the Master Schedule the jobs are assigned to not being updated. Navigate to Settings > Master Schedules > Select each schedule to update them. See the Master Schedules - Add a Master Schedule article and start at step 4.
If there is an Estimate for this Job, you can create the Invoice directly from the Estimate. To do this, open the Estimate Overlay. You will see an Invoice option In the middle above the line items.
If there is no Estimate, you will need to create the Invoice manually.
Important: Keep in mind that regardless of which method you use to create the Invoice, the Job will still automatically create an invoice.
This information is available in two different locations:
- Navigate to Marketing > Email Activity > Click on the box labeled Requests > Use the filter at the top to search for the Client or email address.
- Navigate to the Client Account > Scroll down to the Activity Stream > Locate the email in the activity feed and check just below the "To" field to see an indication of the email's status.
The "Amount" column on the Estimate Grid is required to properly update the Subtotal on the View My Proposal page.
The map location is determined by the coordinates on file for the Client. You can find these coordinates on the Client page by clicking Edit and going to the Details tab. There is a latitude and longitude field that you can use to enter the correct coordinates and update the map location.
- For iOS, we support the latest official version plus two previous official versions.

Currently, there is no filter or report specifically for this data. You can see if your Client has signed up for Autopay by checking if they have a credit card on file and if their payment method is set to a credit card type. You can find a more detailed explanation of the Autopay feature in the article "Client Portal - Autopay Explained".
The primary reason this occurs is because the requirement for the "Automation_Test" tag has not been removed from the triggers. This tag trigger is used for testing. Once the Automation is ready, this trigger can be removed.
The prebuilt ("canned") reports can be found under Reports > Report Center > Select the third icon on the left for SA Reports. If you still do not see the Reports, you would need to check your permissions under User Roles and Rights.
