JobNimbus provides a really simple way to share a job with a partner, customer, or any other related contact, and can even serve as a customer portal.
Sharing a job with a customer allows them to check on the status of the job, see specific notes and attachments you want to share with them, and you can even assign them tasks.
The best part is the person(s) you share with don’t even have to be JobNimbus users. It’s really pretty cool and can be very useful for a number of situations.
Sharing a Job from JobNimbus
Jobs can only be shared with related contacts to the job and can only be shared with contacts that have an email address.
To share a job, click on the action menu to bring up the list of menu options for the job. Choose the Share option to share this job.
Clicking on the Share menu option opens the share settings window where you can set options for how this job will be shared.
Who would you like to share with? – Related contacts on this job with email addresses are listed here.
Which attachments would you like to share? – Allows you to either choose all attachments to share or select specific attachments.
Documents – If you have selected the Let Me Choose option, the list of all attachments on this job will be shown here and you can check the box next to the attachments you would like to share.
Clicking the Share button will immediately send an email to the contact(s) you have selected.
Each selected contact will receive an email from you. This email will contain a secure link to the job share. The contact will not need to create an account with JobNimbus, remember a username or password, or do any other setup. They just click on this secure link and they are taken directly to the job share screen.
