The Job Management area is the center of activities in TOM, and is linked to all other program sections.

In addition to the main order data you will find here communication routines, folder management, time recording, text counting.

Jobs may contain any number of order positions ("job items"). Typical job items are, e.g., different target languages, several documents into one or more languages, DTP or other services, additional cost items such as postage and packing etc.

The job item level is described here. This chapter describes the job level.
