There are a few reports that we would be recommending for the Service Manager to run on a regular basis.

This will give you a start and then you can work out what other reports you need to run as well.

All these reports can be generated through Blackpurl Header > Reporting > Reports - Common Search.

All reports are setup with specific parameters and columns that match that particular report but the user can amend these parameters and columns etc as required

Please review this article - Reporting Tips - Totals / Changing Columns / Changing Parameters / Exporting Search Results 

Special Order Summary 

  • This report will list all Special Order Customer Orders and the status ie All in Stock / Need to Order / Order Submitted
  • It will allow the user to see if any of the Customer Orders for the Sales Type: Service can be booked in for further work (now that the parts have come in) 
  • Change the parameter to only show you Sales Type: Service by adding this parameter:
