Labor Categories

Configuration menu > Labor > Labor Categories

The labor categories window.

Labor categories are services your shop routinely performs like oil changes. You define labor categories and then put Labor Operations in them. This helps you categorize and track the jobs performed in your shop regularly.

R.O. Writer comes with some labor categories already defined. You can modify these categories, add your own, or inactive them depending on the kind of work your shop does.

Take some time to think about how your shop operates, decide what categories make sense for you, and then create those categories here.
