ClickHome manages job data as a set of jobs all related together. The Master Contract record is used to group, all the various job types together. Each Master Contract (contract group) can have 1 of each of Land, Lead, Preconstruction and Construction. Additionally, there can be an unlimited number of maintenance jobs.


If you are using Projects, then the Master Contract can have parent and children Master Contracts.
