Creating a Job

Jobs are created in a few ways.

Manually: You can add a job by clicking “+ New Job” and entering your job details.

Pro tip: If you get a call from a lead, click “+ New Job” in your board view to quickly capture the lead details. Two birds. One stone.

From the Instant Estimator: When a lead comes in from the instant estimator, a new job record is created AND all of the lead details are automatically captured in the job record. That means not only can you save time creating job details, you can contact your leads faster.

From a Measurement Report: When a new measurement report is created, so is a job record. Once you’ve ordered your report, go to your job board and you will find a new job record in the “New Lead” stage.

Job Details

The job details page is where you will manage all the details of your job as it moves through stages.

Job Details

The job details section is the most important high level details that you need to manage your jobs effectively.

Step 1: Assign the job to the relevant sales min, admin, manager etc.

Step 2: Update the stage the job is in from the drop down.

Step 3: Update the job source by either adding a new source, or choosing one of the sources in the drop down.

Step 4: Add or update the job value. This can be edited at any time.

Note: The job values are linked to the instant estimator and proposals. This section will suggest values for you to add to the job based on either the instant estimate or proposal attached to the job.

Step 5: Add any relevant details - like notes from the homeowner, special instructions, colour preferences etc.


Tasks are basically big checklists. When you create a list of tasks, the total number will show at the top of your job, so you can quickly see how far along the job is without digging through emails or piles of paper.

When you create a task you can add a description, you can assign the task to someone, and you can add a due date.

Step 1: Navigate to the task section on your job details page by using the quick navigation at the top, or just scroll directly to the tasks section.

Step 2: Adding a task is pretty straight forward, go to the bar that says “Add a new task” and just start typing. Create a description of the task, then assign the task to someone, and set a due date.

Step 3: To save your tasks and notify the assignee, click the send arrow on the task. (You can’t create a new task until you have saved the previous one)

Managing tasks:

Like all the job activity, the task activity is recorded in the updates section on the right of the job details page. This includes when tasks are created, edited, completed, or deleted.

Deleting tasks:

Step 1: You can delete a task by clicking the red garbage can icon on the task itself

Hiding Completed Tasks:

Hiding your completed tasks doesn’t affect your task count at the top of your job details. It’s simply a way to keep your view clean and organized.

Step 1: To hide the completed tasks, and only show the outstanding tasks on the list, click the “Hide Completed” button at the top of the tasks section.

Due dates:

When you assign a due date to a task, Roofr helps keep you and your team on track and on time.

Each user receives an email when they are assigned a task, 24 hours before the task is due, and when a task is overdue.


Here’s where you can upload anything relevant to your job - contracts, warranty, customer information, photos, etc. Files may be a maximum of 20mb per file. The amount of files you can upload is dependent on your subscription tier - learn more here.

Step 1: When a new lead comes in, click “Instant Estimate” in your top navigation, or scroll to the “Instant Estimate” section on the job details page.

Step 2: Use the drop menus to quickly capture information about the job.

Step 1: Click “Measurements” in the top of your quick navigation, or scroll to the measurements section on the job details page.

Step 2: You can either create a DIY measurement report, or order a measurement report. Either way, once the report is in progress, it will be connected to this job so you can easily keep everything in one place.

Pro tip: Save even more time by turning instantly turning your measurement report into a proposal. In just a few clicks, order a measurement report, turn it into a professional proposal, and send it off for a signature without ever leaving your job record.


In your job page, you can create a proposal from scratch or from existing template, using a measurement report or without. Then, you can manage your proposal in the same place you’re managing the rest of your job - saving you tons of time and a lot of hassle.

From the job details you can:
