The dashboard can be customized to look and function the way you prefer.

To make changes to your dashboard:

1. From the top-right of Workiz, click the Settings cogwheel.
2. From the drop-down, click Settings.
3. Under General Settings, select Job List.

The dashboard settings page is divided to status tabs just like your dashboard.

The options are:

  • Default Sort By – How should this table be ordered when you load it up, you can always click on any column to reorder it from the dashboard itself.
  • Open Job Link – Choose if you prefer to open job edit screen in the same browser tab or in a different one.
  • Default Display Records – This is the default setting for how many records you’d like to display in the entries list.


  • You can decide which fields you’d like to display in your dashboard by turning the toggles on or off for the respective fields.
  • Priority toggle – This option is only available on the submitted tab.
