Estimate/Repair Order/Invoice Validations
Validations provide warnings to alerts users about missing data; things such as Written By field being blank, errors with mileage entered, items with no technicians assigned and so forth. The display of specific warnings, for the EST/RO stage or INV stage, is determined by the checkboxes found within these Validation tabs. When printing an estimate or repair order the system checks for any missing information. Before your print request is processed, you’ll be presented with a dialog box displaying a warning, and in many cases, the opportunity to correct any information before printing. You can also press enter to bypass these warnings and proceed to print stage if needed. By default, all these validations are enabled. Our standard advice is to review them and leave all of the boxes checked; you may however change this to fit your needs.
