    If customers could sign with their finger on phone or tablet an approval for the estimate that was just sent to them and alert you right away.

  2. Subtotals for Sections on Estimates and Invoices

    It would be helpful if there was a way to add subtotals throughout the estimate. For example, sometimes we have to do a subtotal for roof, a subtotal for gutters and then an overall total. Is there a way to do that already?

    Thanks for the help!

  3. Ways to add additional tax rates

    JN only shows 3 tax rates. I have jobs in multiple cities that have different tax rates so when i need to collect taxes, the select one option does not work. I also would like the different tax rates to sync to the tax options i already have set up in Quickbooks. It would make it easier to pay taxes to the state comptroller. I need to be able to designate the taxes per city.

    You can already add more taxes in JobNimbus:
    1. In the Taxes tab of Settings unless…
    2. If QuickBooks sync is on, then you have to add them through QuickBooks and then click “Refresh QuickBooks Lists” in your settings and perform a sync using the Web Connector.

    I have already initiated this, just start a sync from the Web Connector and that should get those other taxes synced to your JobNimbus account.

    If that doesn’t work, please send your issue to support@JobNimbus.com and they’ll be sure to dig deeper and help you get it working!

  4. Option To Hide Subtotal

    On estimates where we are giving several options we do not want the subtotal displaying on the bottom. It would be nice if there was an option when creating an estimate template to be able to take out the subtotal at the bottom.

  5. Larger "description" window on estimates and invoices

    When creating an estimate or an invoice we would like the field for
    "Description" to bigger so we can see all of what we're typing into it.
    Right now it's only big enough to show about 10 characters and it's very
    difficult to see what I type until I save the invoice and preview it.

    You can add the “Subcontractors” field to any template by using the following:

    1. Go to your name at the top right and choose “Settings”
    2. Go to the Templates tab on the left side
    3. Find the Work Order template and choose “Edit”
    4. Click into the section you want to edit.
    5. Place your cursor where you want this field to go.
    6. Use the “Insert Template Field” option in the toolbar to choose: Work Order, then select “Subcontractors”
    7. Save this section, then save the template itself.

    Now when you generate the new Work Orders, it will pull in whoever is set as the subcontractor on the Work Order at the time of creation.

    Hope this helps!

  7. Our logo on the estimate when we create it.

    Is it possible to have our logo show up on the estimate page when we create it?

  8. Duplicate lines

    Every time I add a line item on an estimate or invoice from scratch it duplicates it between 3 and 6 times. It's insanely frustrating when I try to delete the duplicate lines the entire item deletes. I have to save the estimate and go back in and delete each duplicate. I'm about to lose my mind and switch my company to another system.

  9. Didnt force you to save a product in products list

    Would like to enter products in each line item when writing an estimate but not be forced to save it in the products list, that way we don't have multiple basically duplicated items in the products and services and we can customize them a little more

    This is a limitation exclusive to the QuickBooks sync, since QuickBooks doesnt allow custom line items.

    If you are not using the QuickBooks Sync feature, then you can disable it in the Features tab of your settings. This will allow you to add custom line items to your estimates and other documents without having them save to your Products & Services list.

    If you have further questions, please contact support@JobNimbus.com or call 855-964-6287 (option 2) for assistance.

  10. Do not auto-link 'Customer' when making Estimate for a Job

    When making an estimate for a job, it auto links it to the parent customer(contact). And then when you are actually looking into any job inside that parent customer (Contact), it shows all the estimates inside it and not just the one which is relevant to the job. This defeats the purpose of having this customer - sub customer relationship.

    All you need to do is go to the Contact’s Financials tab and uncheck the “Related” checkbox so those estimates don’t show up on your contacts. This checkbox is a per-user checkbox, so each user on your account that doesn’t want to see the estimates on the contact should uncheck it. Once you uncheck it on one contact, it will remain unchecked for all contacts until you re-check it.

    Enjoy!

  12. help information for Lead vs. Sold vs. Archive for WO

    I could not find help documentation for what is affected by marking WO Statuses as Leads vs. Sold vs. Archive. I understand the "Archive" one but am curious as to how the other two affect reporting, accounting, etc.

  13. Expenses or Subcontractor Payments not just estimates within Budget

    Keep a simple account of expenses or subcontractor payments rather than just invoices and payments from clients. Would like to show all financial activity linked to jobs.

    You can add additional expenses to the Budget by adding additional line items that weren’t included in the original estimate.

    This should allow you to get a much fuller picture of the job’s financial activity.

  14. Save Estimate button

    The Save as Template alongside the Add Estimate button is a bit confusing. We see what we want to see and our sales people keep clicking on Save as Template before they realize they should be clicking the Add Estimate button. Then they don't know what happened to their estimate. May I suggest Add Template and Save Estimate?

  15. Open invoice reports with $ amounts

    It would be very helpful if there were reporting features to run open (unpaid) invoice reports per salesman, per time period, etc. This would help keep on top of unpaid invoices.

    You can create an Invoice report, filter it by balance and sales rep, or date range, etc. It’s actually pretty quick to set up, and then you can add it to your dashboard.

    If you need further assistance or have any other questions, please send an email to support@JobNimbus.com and they’ll be able to get you taken care of.

  16. contractor signature line

    State of Minnesota requires both homeowner and contractor signature on all contracts. It would be great to have the ability to do both electronically. It would be a needed feature for document templates and the signing ability of both parties on mobile.

  19. documentation on coding for creating templates

    I am trying to find a place where basic template coding is listed but I cannot find this in your help documentation. I need to know how to reference fields both already in your system and those we have added as custom fields. Thanks!

  20. Budget Global Stop-Loss % Manager Override

    When setting budget limits within JN, i.e. setting the minimum gross profit percentage and minimum net profit percentage, the setting is a global hard limit and will not allow us to save the record if we go below the minimum set within the system. While we want to maintain certain job margins there are occasional times, for whatever reason, we aren't able to stay above the limit. We still need to keep the limits in place but we need to also continue to add the line item cost to a customers job.

    Rather than having it as a global hard…
