The "Quick Create" job panel allows for contextual job creation. Quickly create and schedule jobs from within the context of the main scheduling console while still being able to interact with the swimlanes and map.
Create a Quick Job (2 min 06)
On the scheduling console, just above the job list panel, click the "Quick Create Job" button.
You will be presented with the "Quick Create" panel, where you can enter the required details about the job, i.e., job type, description, contact name, region, address and more.
Fill out all the required fields marked red. These fields will be marked green if the data entered is valid.
When the required fields have been completed, click "Save and Queue" (to add to the job to the job list–status = "Queued"), or click "Next" to be presented with a summary of the job.
To cancel the job, click on the small "x" button at the top-right of the "Quick Create" panel before moving on to the next stage, i.e., before clicking "Save and Queue" or "Next" button. Then confirm the cancellation.
Past this point, the job will be either "Queued" or allocated "Pending Dispatch."
To allocate and schedule the job, either drag-and-drop the job into a swimlane (as in Figure 5)...
...Or click the "Suggest" button (the light bulb icon) to have the scheduling engine suggest a time and resource. From the suggestions, pick one by clicking on the blue marker in the swimlane.
