< Scheduling Functions for Services in Column View < Deleting Services

The delete function is often used when you have made a lot of scheduling errors on a service order to the point where it is now easier to start again.

Example - A client requires a dog walk every Monday and Tuesday throughout June. You have created a service order and booked a dog walk for Monday through Friday (by mistake). In this example, it is easier to delete all the services you have created for the month and re-schedule them correctly.

Important: The delete function should be used with care. Unlike voided or canceled items, deleted items may not be re-instated or recovered. They are permanently removed from your system and can only be recovered with a backup copy of your data.

As a safeguard against accidental deletions, a warning will appear that will require you to confirm your deletion by clicking a second "delete" button. 


As an additional safeguard, if the date of a service is in the past, or if a service has already been invoiced, then the service cannot be deleted without being voided or cancelled first. 


Services that are deleted:

  • are removed from your service order completely and cannot be reinstated, but new services can be re-scheduled to replace the ones that have been deleted

  • are removed from the administrators schedule and the staff schedule so that the work does not get carried out

  • are removed from client quotes and invoices 

  • are removed from staff compensation reports 


NOTE: Deleted jobs CANNOT be re-instated like a canceled or voided job.
