We use a two crew system, so we mow in seperate areas everyday.

they are called:
Monday truck 1
Monday truck 2
Tuesday truck 1
Tuesday truck 2
Wednsday truck 1
Wednsday truck 2
Thursday truck 1
Thursday Truck 2
Friday Truck 1
Friday truck 2
Rider jobs


so, how would i go about setting up for two trucks to be running on the same day? and making sure the right people are on the right truck?

I am sure it is possible...I just dont know how....
also, how would i set up a surcharge that automaticly gets added to every invoice for a perticular job?

Here is another post of interest for you.

Using the Matrix to create a fuel surcharge line item.

Does this help?

the thing is, I need to be able to make it so that some customers are alternating "using the schedual function"

i guess I am unsure of the difference imbetween the schedual function and or making the route manually....if i make the route manually, will the route be reacurring?

Ok, you use the route screen to order how customers will be printed out in your schedule.

&
Truck B

they service two different parts of the city each day.

how do i set it up so that the people in the right part of town are assighned to the right truck?

Here's the relationship between properties, routes and crews.

A property is assigned to a route (through the customer screen)
A route is a assigned to a crew (through the route screen)

A route reflects a particular geographic area. You assign a customer to the right part of town by going to the route screen, editing/creating a route, and assigning a customer to that route.

A customer's job is then assigned to a crew through the following relationship:
property -> route -> crew

You can override this and manually assign a scheduled job to a specific crew on Step 2 of the schedule wizard by clicking the "Job Crew" button.
