The Job Folder

“The Job Folder” is central to how Ornavi is structured and organised. Each job you create in the system is allocated it’s own folder and unique ID. From then on everything relating to the job will now be linked to the unique ID and will be stored in the Job Folder. You can access everything simply by clicking on the various tabs.

The default format for the Job ID is YYXXXXA. YY represents the year it was created, XXXX is a numerical increment starting from 0001. The letter is used for extending existing jobs starting from A given to the original job. Eg. 150001A. You can change the format of Job ID’s by contacting us.


Job Details

Job Folder - Job Details

The first tab of any Job Folder is Job Details. This is where you can find and update all the important information about the job including key dates, key contacts and the job description. You will also be able to see at a glance the status of the job and how it is progressing.

From here, users with the correct permissions can do several things:


[Edit]: Click this option to amend and update any information about the job. You can edit as much as necessary until it is marked as complete.
[Watch]: When clicked a green tick is visible and the job will be listed under Watched Jobs on the homepage. Click again to Unwatch.
[Extend]: To be used when additional work is requested on an existing job. It will create a new job with the same ID but a different letter.
[Duplicate]: Use to create a  brand new job with the option of copying across some information from the current job.


ornavi delete icon/buttonA job can be deleted using the button on the top right of the job folder but this should only be used if the job was added in error and as a last resort because it cannot be undone. Instead a job should be marked inactive using the status options as this does not remove it from your historical data.


Job Folder - Create Task

You can break down your projects into smaller steps and assign these to your employees as Tasks. All tasks for a job will be listed in this tab.

To create a new task for yourself or an employee click [Create Task]. When a task is created, it can be assigned to another user who will receive an email alert.
