Job work order forms are a written contract between you and a client for services or materials. The most common elements found on a work order include customer’s billing and shipping address, customer’s name, ordered by, order taken by, description of work, materials, and an authorized signature. The order form may also include employee time spent on the job.
What goes on your work order depends on your industry and how you run your business. The best part of designing your own form is that you have complete control over layout and design. You can leave out the parts you don’t need in favor of expanding the areas that need the most space.
