Job cards contain the details of requested services. They may or may not include scheduling information (date/time) or job tasks. Once created, job cards are placed job list panel in the scheduling console ready for scheduling.
The Job List Panel
The job list panel contains a list of individual cards known as "Job Cards". Each card represents a job that has been created. This panel allows easy access to review or manage existing jobs.

The content displayed on a job card can vary depending on where they are viewed in the Skedulo web app, and whether they contain optional fields.
Details can include:
- Job status.
- Scheduled time.
- Resource allocation (as seen by the avatar).

Using Job Cards
Clicking on the job number (also known as "Job Name") opens that job in the "Job Details" view where its details can be viewed and/or changed.
Clicking on the lock icon (named "Lock job") will lock the selected job and its details. Once activated, the values on job details panel are no longer editable. Once locked, it can be easily unlocked again by clicking the same icon on the job card or via the additional menu in job details header bar.
Clicking on the recurring schedule icon will open the recurring schedule view for this job.
Clicking on the map marker icon (named "View on map") opens map view and centers on the job's location.

Drag and Drop a Job Card
Clicking on the edge of the card and dragging it to the swimlane lets you allocate a resource to the job. To add multiple resources to the job, go to the job details panel. As more resources are allocated to the job, their profile images (or avatars) are added to the job card.

Resize Job Cards
To save some user interface real-estate, job cards can be resized in the job list panel. The sizes available are large (the default size), medium, and small. A toggle button to change the card size is available at the top of the job list panel.
