Current Process

If you are not freezing the work order during the estimate process, techs can see the jobs and start working on them, even if you haven’t gotten customer approval yet.

Best Practice

By freezing the work order, you can add all of the estimates, and then when you get notice of what got approved you can easily check them off and unfreeze the work order so the tech can start working on the vehicle.
