i'll work on the sequence, good idea. as for the whole job number thing:

If you're creating a new job, it should fill in the first box for you
based on the client you choose from the drop box on the left(evolt is 02
for example). the next box is blank, thats the job number. i'll work on
auto-sequencing this. the next box is a letter.. that way you can have
'revisions' of each job.. does that make sense?

when you *edit* a job, you shouldn't need to change anything except the
letter, and only do that if you want a new 'revision' for that job.

that should be fixed..

yes, exactly.. ijust added a members.evolt.org 'client' so you can get a
feel for that..

> Under tasks, can you add, Review/Approval?

not 100% sure what ya mean..

you guys are seeing stuff from the 'highest' level too.. there is
another level of user(say someone from thesite that volunteers to do
something) that can only view their tasks, and can't create new tasks..
so there are different levels basically.. maybe i'll create a generic
regular user so you can see what the view looks like from there

good, i see you have that letterhead slated for tomorrow ;) hopefully
this will limit the amount of ideas and work that 'falls through the
cracks' here and on admin
