Job Ownership

In Brief: This section allows us to set job ownership and job folders.

Dependencies: none.

Hints & Tricks: Setting job ownership and folders is only possible with admin accounts.



Any status messages and alerts are shown here.

Starting from the left side of the screen and moving right we have:

Job Folder List

This is the list of job folders we have defined in the system. We define these folders just below item in the Job Folder Names text box. When we select a name the Jobs list will display, showing all jobs that belong in that folder.

Job Folder Names

Type names in the box, one per line, to define your job folders. This control automatically updates the Job Folder List.


When we select a Job Folder from the Job Folders List we populate and show this box. To assign a job to a folder, simply click it. To select more than one job hold control and click on the job name. To deselect a job hold control and click.

User List

When we first load the job ownership page this list will display all user names currently set in the RackForms database. To change job ownership, start by selecting a user name from this list.

Job's this user manages:

After we've selected a user name from the User Name list this select item will automatically be shown along with all current job names. Any jobs the current user owns will be highlighted.

To change job ownership simply click on a job name.That job now belongs to that user.

Of course we can select multiple jobs by holding control down and clicking on a name, or we can simply click and drag to select multiple names.

Please note that we cannot unassigned a job to a user--we can only change the jobs ownership.

So many features, So little time
