There are a number of ways to handle variations on a Job.
Variations on a Job/Project can either be managed by:
- creating a separate Job for the variations requested by the Customer, or
- you can use tasks on a Job to cost and invoice variations separately.
Creating another Job allows you to manage the variation work completely independently of the main Job/Project. However, you can still produce one invoice for all the work carried out on the Job, if needed, using the New Billing Run invoicing feature, which can be found under the Invoices main menu.

Variations on a Separate Job
The following is an example of where a separate Job has been created to handle variations on a Job. We recommend using the Reference field to indicate that it is sub job of another Job and that it is a job to handle variations costing. In this example the Reference indicates the Job is a sub Job of JB00013 and so the Reference field reads - JH13 - Variations
Use Job Tasks to Cost & Invoice Variations
The variation requests can be added to the Job as Tasks. The Task/s can be allocated to the time and material costs on the Job as shown in the images below
These cost can be invoiced separately if required
