The Settings -> Job Categories area allows you to view, edit, delete, and create job categories.
Job Categories can be used however you wish. They can be used to describe the budget status of a job e.g. Project, Term Maintenance. They can also be used to specify whether this category of job requires authorisation.
If self-billing for contractors is activated, Job Categories could also be used to create a separate contractor invoice for each category code.
