Understanding and Adding Jobs for Customers (sub-accounts)

How, When, and Why to Use Them

This topic will cover setting up, adding, editing, deleting, and making a Customer:Job sub account. These are also referred to as Customer Jobs, Jobs, Children, Child Accounts, and sub-customers.

When to Use Jobs and Sub-Customers

You can add children or sub accounts to any Customer:Job. This may be useful when you wish to setup a corporate office and all of its individual stores. It could also be used to enter job under a customer. For example: you may enter a business as the parent and the job as a child.

This technique may also be appropriate if you are entering a landlord and all of its rental properties. The landlord’s office may be considered the parent and the rental units may be considered the children (sub accounts).
