Whether it's a maintenance issue or an operator in need of assistance, cutting down the time between needing help and getting it keeps everything on track. Alerts let the right people know there’s a problem immediately.
Here’s how it works:
Alert types are configurable in Business Setup > System Data > Job Tracking Setup. This feature automatically starts with two preset Alerts: a Maintenance Alert and a Help Request Alert. You can customize Alerts or add/delete Alert presets as you see fit.
Anyone with the ”Receive Alerts From Job Tracking” permission will receive alerts.
Certification Attachments are now always visible in Receiving. This makes it easier for the user to know what certifications they have uploaded. Additionally, the permissions around certifications are now applied to the certification attachments in Receiving.
You can now disable the Job Tracking PIN login. Instead of using the PIN login, users can log in with their email address and password as usual. This is helpful for customers leveraging multi-factor authentication or those who simply don't require the PIN login process in Job Tracking.
To make this change, navigate to System Data > Job Tracking Setup > Disable PIN login for Job Tracking.
We’ve made some tweaks to Purchasing Planning to make it easier to understand:
Introducing the new Job Tracking dashboard, redesigned to increase clarity and ease of use. The priority order of operations is still powered by Fulcrum's Autoschedule, but the operation cards have been streamlined to bring focus directly to what’s most important on the top of the queue.
New information to the operation card includes the ability to start/stop timers for jobs, the previous operation and its status, and an 'Open NCR' tag.
This update also features a new navigation tab bar for clear separation of operations by status, and a feature where recently viewed operations and searches appear when you click on the search bar. The enhanced OmniSearch now filters operations by department, operation, and equipment and stays with the user until they reset it. Users can set a default department, streamlining the process for operators who typically don't switch departments during their day.
New chat functionality will be included in this release as well, so operators can see notes for all jobs rather than just the ones they had previously worked on. This feature is responsive to all screen sizes, including mobile. These improvements are designed to make Job Tracking more intuitive and efficient for everyone.
New year new look! ✨ We understand the need for machinists and operators to always know which job to work on, which is why we have updated the Job Tracker dashboard. The operation priority order in Job Tracker is still fed by Fulcrum's Scheduler, but we have made it easier to hone in on the biggest priority and get to work faster. Coming January 16th.
Through these downloads, you will now have access to pricing and BOM & Routing data in your Fulcrum site as well as the ability to add, delete, and change data points in bulk.

Now there are separate columns for First and Last Names, alongside the existing Full Name column. Since this report is most frequently used for payroll, these additional columns add flexibility as you sort and filter the report in the way that is most consistent with how you submit payroll.
Both the All Order Detail and the Open Order Detail tabs have additional date fields. Included on both are:
Note, this report will be renamed in the download menu from Download Historical Data to Download Order Detail.
When tracking quality, you want a record of which parts in the run are within and out of tolerance. Previously, Job Tracking limited users from marking an operation “complete” until they fixed any parts marked “out of tolerance.” While this makes sense for some use cases, some operations may need to be completed regardless of whether they reworked the part.We’ve added a new field to In Process Tracking called “Allow out of tolerance completion” that allows for operation completion even when a part is marked “out of tolerance.” This is set on an operation-to-operation basis in the BOM and routing editor and appears when an In-Process Field is marked “Required.”
