Create service lines manually (free text)

If a service is not defined in a Contract or in the master items list, you can also create service lines manually (free text). Please note that a service can only be created at the lowest level of the hierarchy. After creating the service line, which appears at the bottom, you can use the ‘Cut-out’ function to paste it elsewhere. It can also be moved with the help of the arrow buttons  (see button bar for the items list creation).



  1. In the tree, select the position or title under which the free text line is to be created.

  2. Click on the button "New free text line". The Service Line Details window appears

  3. Fill in all required fields and click "Save".

4. If necessary, maintain a long text for the service line. To do this, switch to the "Long text" tab. You can make text formatting and, if necessary, add image files to the description.



5. The uploaded image file can be resized. To do this, right-click on the image file and select "Properties".

When you're done creating the performance line, click Save to close the window at the same time.
