Use Job Materials flags to assign a status to materials - for example, Waiting for Parts, Change Order Pending or Reschedule Install. Material flags are useful when dealing with large lists of job materials in varying stages of delivery or install. 

You can assign material flags from the line item update screen in the Materials menu of each job.
