The Job Card, in our minds, is the center point of WMJ. All the information placed in the Job Card generates the reports needed for your shop. You can input as much or as little information if you like.
The Job Card (pg 2) is where you would input all the information given to you from your customer. When you go into the Job card, you may seem overwhelmed by all the empty space but that’s okay, not all sections have to be filled out. You fill up the job card to your liking, besides the very basic information needed. The more detailed the Job Card is, the more detailed reports are generated.
First, you would need to input the most basic information, which includes the customer’s name, the due date of a particular job, the type of job it is, the type of apparel and the quantity of the apparel. From there, you can upload the artwork needed for the job and any additional information you were given.
Customer Info – For the customer’s portion, you have a selection of customers to choose from. Your In-House customers are customers who have not created a WMJ account (see In-House customer article located on the Basic Page section of the blog). Your Brokers are customers who have created WMJ accounts of their own and have linked their account to yours. This is where the third domain users create the jobs at (see Broker article located on the Basic Page section of the blog). Vendor is the user itself, you would have to change the a Broker’s order to Vendor if you are to change anything regarding a Broker’s order.
Job Info – From there, you would input the basic information for the rest of this section, such as the purchase order number, the name of the job, and the due date. You have the option to change the assign user and artist if you have not already set it as your preference (see Preference articles for more detail, located in the Basic Page section). You can also change the production status and artwork status, again if you have not already change it in your Preference Page.
All Job cards are set as automatic default new order, meaning that the order is not a reorder. You do have the ability to change this by simply clicking on the reorder check box. From there, you would have to choose which type of work this order will be. Select from the list of job types, located on the right side of the Job Card form. Once you selected the type of job, you would have to click on “show order form” to finish up the rest of the order.
Order Form – Once selecting “Show Order Form,” this is where you can input as much or as little information as possible. Here, you have different sections you can input information and each job type is a bit different to better fit the type of job. Here, you can input the apparel information, the quantity of the apparel and the color. You can also have access to your customized apparel and color list (see Product and Color articles respectively, located in the Basic Page).
Artwork – You can upload the files needed for the job in the artwork section of the page (see App articles for a more detailed information). You do have the ability of inputting more info, using the notes tab.
Location – As the name states, this section lets you pinpoint the desired location of the placement of the logo. You have a list of locations already placed however you do have the ability of customizing the location placement or place further information of the already stated location.
Shipping – WMJ also allows you place further information on the shipping tab. Besides inputting the vital address information, you are also have the ability of adding additional information, such as “attention to” or if your customer requested specific information for the shipment of the order.
As stated, you can input as little or as much information your shop needs. The more information, the more detailed report will be generated as well as an easier duplication process to ensure the order is done correctly.
Google Drive Tab– If you like link a Google Spreadsheet or Google Doc to a job, its very easy. We understand that we work in spreadsheet for various reason and found it be convenient to able to see the specific Google Document attach to the job. Such as a spreadsheet for separating an order, or classifying apparel for certain finishing. Now you can view it “live” and share with your users.
The process is very simple and the results will definitely save you a lot of time.
