Job Details Report

Details Report Overview

The Job Details report within the SapphireOne Job Projects mode produces reports about a Job Project which are similar to those produced in Vendors and Clients under this heading. 

When the Details function is selected from the Job Projects menu, SapphireOne will present a print dialog screen for the user to select and customise the criteria and data they would like included within the Details Report.

When printing reports, the user should be aware that SapphireOne will assume that it is to print the selected report on all Projects that are currently active and in SapphireOne, the same as when a Project Inquiry is performed. This may be from just a few projects but could extend to hundreds or even thousands.

SapphireOne’s implementation of both Dictation (MacOS) and Speech to Text (Windows) is a game changer for anybody doing data entry within SapphireOne. Any data entry field that the user can type into using a keyboard, they can use this feature.

They can also use this functionality on all inquiry screens within SapphireOne. For example, the user is in a Contact within a Client and they have just made a phone call to that particular client using the Softphone technology, this will automatically date and time stamp the contact and the phone number you called to. As soon as the call is completed or finished, the user has the ability to use the Speech to Text (Windows) function or Dictation (MacOS) function and dictate into the memo field of the CRM contact, adding as much description as they require.

This functionality applies across every single Data Entry screen. For example, if the user is entering a Vendor Invoice (VI) and they want to add a memo within the Vendor Invoice (VI), the user can simply dictate the memo. Another example is if the user wants to add additional lines to the General Ledger account, within each General Ledger account when the user is completing data entry using a General Ledger, there’s always a unique memo field for each General Ledger account line, the user can utilise this feature to quickly add the information they need to add. Additionally, if you’ve got an interview with an employee and after the interview process is completed the user is able to make notes about the employee.

Speech to Text or Dictation is an extremely powerful tool and it’s something that we at SapphireOne as well as our clients utilise daily. It is a massive timesaver.
