Use the Subcontractor Flags option (Administration > Job Management > General Setup > Sub-Contractor Flags) to create new flags that you can assign to the subcontractors on a job. Generally, you can use these flags to keep track of the status of a subcontractor on a job - for example, RFP Submitted, Proposal Received and Scheduled. 

You can assign a flag to a subcontract on a job using the Flag field on the Job Subcontractor screen (Administration > Job Costing > Search Jobs > Open a job > Subcontractors tab > Open or add a subcontractor).

  1. Go to Administration > Job Costing > General Setup > Subcontractor Flags.
  2. Click Add to create a new subcontractor flag.
  3. Description - Enter the subcontractor flag - for example, RFP Submitted, Proposal.
  4. Is Default - Check this box to create a default subcontractor flag. By default, this flag will be selected when you add subcontractors to a job. 
    • For example, you can create a flag titled RFP Sent, and set that up as the default subcontractor flag.
  5. Click OK to save the new flag. 
    • You can assign the new flag to a subcontract on a job using the Flag field on the Job Subcontractor screen (Administration > Job Costing > Search Jobs > Open a job > Subcontractors tab > Open or add a subcontractor).
