Editing a Job Template

Editing a Job Template

Job Templates can be edited in two different ways. You can edit services one-by-one or by using the Mass Edit tool. Just remember that as you edit a Job Template, it will affect all locations the job template is assigned to. Elements being added to a template also need to exist already, though you will be able to add them from the editing screen.

Navigate to your job templates by clicking the Admin tab, then click Job Templates in the Job Configuration section.

Editing a Job Template Name or Frequency

Each Job Template has a name, description, and frequency associated with it. To begin editing a Job Template, click on the name of the template in the Job Template Search list to open it. Click Edit next to the Main Information box.


On the Main Info editing screen, you can update the name of the template, the job template frequency, the description, and the status of the template. If you change the status to Inactive, it will unassign it from any locations it may be assigned to. Click Save after making any changes.



Editing Single Services

Sometimes a job template just needs to be updated, either by removing services or changing the wording or areas the services are in.

Editing Services

After opening the job template you wish to edit, click the Edit button next to the Job Services Title.



To edit a service, click the Edit button for that service.



Here, you can edit all information for the selected service. The Origin is referring to where the information is coming from. The default is Local. Local information is all created in your own system. Parent SPs is information that is created by CleanTelligent and is available to your system, but not stored in your system. All will show you all information from both origin points.



You can change the service name, the area it belongs to, the frequency, function, or the Custom Rating template used for the service. You can also add a custom weight to the service or it’s tracking items. Use the drop-down list options to make the changes you need, then click Save to return to the full template to continue making changes.

Removing Services and/or Areas


After opening the job template you wish to edit, click the Edit button next to the Job Services title.


Below the Add Job Services box, each area and its services are listed. To remove a service, click the Remove button for that service. 



To remove an Area and all the services included in it, click the Remove All Services button above the Area you wish to remove.



When editing a Job Template, the changes you make are saved each time to click the Remove button.

Making Mass Edits


For making changes that will affect an entire job template, you can use the Mass Edit function. This is useful when you need to update the Custom Rating Template or change Frequencies. Start by opening the Job Template you’ll be editing. Below the Main Information box, click Mass Edit.




On the Mass Edit screen, the first box has all the active Job Templates in your system.



From that list, select the Job Template that you'll be editing then click Add Selected above the box. You may repeat this step if you are changing multiple Job Templates at a time. After you've added your Job Template, it will be listed in the Affected Job Template list below the list.




In a Mass Edit, you can edit Areas, Frequencies, Functions, and Custom Rating Templates.


Mass Area Edit

To change the name of an Area, click New Mass Area Edit. A box will show up below.



In this box, both sections list ALL active areas in your system, not just the areas used in the selected job template. The list on the left will be where you select the area that is currently used in the template. The list on the right will be the area you are changing it to.
DO NOT click the Remove button after making your selections from both the left and right lists. Clicking the Remove button will remove the selection of your mass edit. 
Click the Save button to make your changes.

Mass Frequency Edit

To change the frequencies of selected services, click New Mass Frequency Edit. A box will show up below.


In this box, both sections list ALL active frequencies in your system, not just the frequencies used in the selected job template. The list on the left will be where you select the frequency that is currently used in the template. The list on the right will be the frequency you are changing it to.

Once again, do not click the Remove button unless you want to cancel the change.

Click Save to make your changes.

Mass Function Edit

To change the functions of selected services, click New Mass Function Edit. A box will show up below.


In this box, both sections list ALL active functions in your system, not just the functions used in the selected job template. The list on the left will be where you select the function that is currently used in the template. The list on the right will be the frequency you are changing it to.

Once again, do not click the Remove button unless you want to cancel the change.

Click Save to make your changes.

Mass Custom Rating Template Edit

To change the functions of selected services, click New Mass Custom Rating Template Edit. A box will show up below.


In this box, both sections list ALL active custom rating templates in your system, not just the rating templates used in the selected job template. The list on the left will be where you select the rating template that is currently used in the template. The list on the right will be the frequency you are changing it to.

Once again, do not click the Remove button unless you want to cancel the change.

Click Save to make your changes.
Remember that when you make changes to a Job Template, it will affect all locations that have that Job Template assigned to it. Users on the mobile app will need to refresh their apps to make sure they are using the correct updated template.
