Sometimes you need to collect certain information for every job, or for every job of a particular type. For example, for jobs covered by insurance, you would want to know the date of the loss, the amount of the deductible, and whether you were collecting the deductible. On the other hand, for landscaping jobs, you wouldn’t typically need insurance information, but you might want information about payment schedules, information about existing perennials, or other information. Surveys let you establish the information you need for a particular type of job and then collect that information consistently. You can include the information collected in surveys in documents and financial reports.
