Understanding the Schedule

The schedule is a tool predominantly used to manage your workshop.

Garage Hive works by allocating time, rather than jobsheets within the schedule. This allows you to load time accurately.

For example.
If you are booking in a gearbox repair job, you would not be doing all of the work in one go.

Garage Hive allows you to make multiple allocations of one job, therefore being able to accurately load your day with jobs you will actually be working on, therefore your statistics of available hours will also be accurate.

Understanding the colours within the Garage Hive Schedule.
