  2. Set the Standard Time to be used for the labour. Using the Make, Model, and Production Years for the vehicle, you can add several Standard Times.

  3. When you add the labour in the Jobsheet, the Standard Time is used, of which it can be changed from the Quantity field. The Standard Time (Hours) column is available for comparison (if not available you can add it by personalising).

  4. If there are several Standard Times available, a pop-up appears with the preset Standard Times, and you can choose the relevant one.
