To create a new job, you will go to the Jobs window, open the Insert Job wizard and enter information in the required fields. Then you will activate the job so that the system knows that it is the job you want to work on.

Open the Jobs window by going to the Setup menu and clicking Jobs (or just click on the Setup Jobs toolbar button). In the lower-left corner, click insert (or right-click inside the window and click insert in the context menu). The Insert Job wizard will open. You will use this window to set up your new job.
The NavBar on the window's left side has two top-level groups (highlighted in blue), each with its own information tabs. Under Job Information, there are five tabs for entering information specific to the job itself. The Bid Results & Award group has two tabs that hold information on bid results and how the bid was awarded. Information in these tabs is entered once the bid has been awarded.
Many of the information fields in the Insert Job window are connected to corresponding columns in the Jobs window.

To set up a job you only need to enter information in the first four required fields - Job Number, Bid Date, Bid Time, and Job Description. Click in a field and enter your data. When finished, click OK. Your new job will now be included in the Jobs window.
