Using a repair template will increase your efficiency by saving time every time you need to set up a common repair on a job. They also give your garage consistently-worded Job Cards for technicians, and invoices for customers. Rather than having to type in repair descriptions and adding labour and parts, you now simply select a repair template which will then populate your Job card with the descriptions, hours and parts needed for the repair.
Setting up a new repair template only takes a few minutes, and you can either set them up from scratch or you can save repairs from a job as a new repair template. If you've been using Packages to bundle together parts and labour, we've also added in a simple way to convert them into a new repair template.
Please see below quick guide how to create new Repair Template.
Navigate to Products > Repair templates.
Click New Repair Template.
Enter a Code, Name, Type, Work requested, Repair notes, and Estimated hours. CarVue will automatically add Labour to your new template.
You can also select Fixed Pricing to offer this repair template at a fixed price.
All done! Your new Repair Template is ready to use.
To add your repair template to a Job Card, see How to add repairs and items to job cards.
