Job status information is for your records—it gives you a way to keep
track of each job. When you create a customer list report, QuickBooks includes
the status of each job on the report. You can also see the status of a job
by clicking a job in the Customers & Jobs list and looking in the Job Information area.
If a job's status changes, you must edit the job information and assign
a new status description to the job. QuickBooks will not do this for you.
