Important: If you want to make entries without having the job field pop-up each time, you can go under the edit menu and select “Skip Job” or hit Ctrl K (Windows) or Command K ( – Macintosh) on the keyboard. Do the same thing to return to having the field pop-up.
Modifying a Job

You cannot modify a job number once it has been saved. Modifying a job number and clicking Save will add the new job number to the list but will not remove the old one.

You can delete a job that has had no activity in the 30 open months. To delete a job, first select the job from the list on the right, then select Delete from the Edit menu. Jobs that have had activity in any of the 30 open months cannot be deleted mid-year.
You can also delete a job at year end. To delete a job at the end of the year, check the Completed option and the job will be deleted when you close the year.
