I think it's pretty cool, but was wondering if anyone had other thoughts? Any trouble uploading docs?
The new Job Board is okay, it took just a bit of getting use to.
Strange to me that this version of the job board was changed from "Materials Received" to "Materials Ordered" status, especially since Materials should really be ordered at the time of accepting the job since most jobs have such a short lead time.
I have always felt there should be more job status buttons on added to create better transparency with the case management team.
@Rex Machining , I have not had any issues uploading docs with the new job board, I use to with the old one ever once in a while, but if you are having troubles, try refreshing your screen if you have been at idle for a while, sometimes downloading a doc it will give me a weird error code, but then I just refresh and that fixes the issue. I'm sure it may be the same for uploading docs.
1.) I agree with breaking down the status of the progress a bit more for clarity
3.) I would like the price at the front page too.
*I also feel that since there are a lack of status options your "communication" score suffers. Sometimes we select a job with longer lead time and we have ordered and received material but we are finishing other jobs with the shorter lead time first. Maybe adding in a chat feature (or call it a status update box) like on the 2D RFQ's would be beneficial that way you can just add in notes when there is an update in between the status' given.
*I agree with pricing on the front page of Current jobs as well. We refer to a lot of jobs by their price since we are such a small shop. Just more convenient and something we liked about the old job board.
Sorry if this is off-topic.
I noticed that , coincidentally with the role-out of the RFQ program, the standard job board has died.
For the last two weeks there have been no less than 30-35 jobs on the board at any time. Now the last few days it has plummeted to around 5-8. ??
I was thinking about this a few weeks back and now I just saw blog
I really like the new appearance.
The colors make it more elegant and easier to see
You are all doing a superb job of making everything better and better.
