Add custom filters


You can add custom fields to the jobs list, allowing you to filter the list in the way you would like:


Go to Settings > General Settings > Jobs Lists


Click on Add field



Select the fields you'd like to appear on any jobs lists



Click OK, and then click Save


When you return to the jobs list, you should now have the option to filter by the fields you just added.



Add date columns


You might want to add a column to your jobs list to show other key task dates from your jobs - for example the date that records have been received from your client.


To do this, you first need to find the task in the job template, and ensure that you are storing the task completion date.


Go to Settings > Jobs > Select the relevant job > Select the relevant task



Click on the 'Advancedtab and tick 'Store task completion date'.



Enter a field reference for the task completion date, then click 'OK'.



Go to the 'Dates' tab for the job, and click 'Add date'.



In the offset field, enter the same field reference that you used for the task completion date and add "+0d" to the end.


Select Yes under "show as column", and enter a column name. Save the job.



Now when you open the jobs list, a new column will display showing the task date.




Filter options on the jobs list


This option is particularly useful for practices with multiple offices.


For example:


Your practice has 4 offices based in Bristol, Salisbury, Derby and Newport. 


First we will need to add those offices to Senta, and we can do that by adding new lookups.


Go to Settings > Lookups


Click Add lookup and then add a lookup description e.g Office.



Add the location for each office



Hit Save!


Now we will have to add a new field to the clients page to be able to assign the client to one of the offices.


Go to Settings > Forms > Edit client > General tab



Click add field at the bottom of the page.


Add field description: Office
Select field type: Lookup
Select lookup: Office


Hit Save at the top of the page!


Now we will have to add a new field that will allow us to filter by the location of the offices.


Go to Settings > General settings > Job lists and click Add field



Please highlight Office from the list and click OK:
