Term Description
Schedule A schedule can be created at either the job level or on every phase of a job. A schedule is a list of tasks or stages, each of which has a start and end date and can be allocated to a person who is responsible for completing the task. The list of tasks can be printed out or viewed as a gantt chart.
SSL Secure Sockets Layer, SSL, is the standard security technology for creating an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and the browser remains private and integral. SSL is an industry standard and is used by millions of websites in the protection of their online transactions with their customers. In order to be able to generate an SSL link, a web server requires an SSL Certificate. Your Synergist server has a built-in user interface to assist with acquiring an SSL certificate to secure communication between your web server and remote users.
Staff Resource A staff resource is typically linked to a user who creates timesheets, or for whom timesheets are created. You can create staff resources and not link these to users. In this scenario timesheets for these members of staff would be entered centrally by an administrator.
Stage Stages are a component of 2 tier jobs. They are a simple way of tracking the current stage of a job. Stages can be used at either the job header level or the job phase level of a job (but not both).
