An Amendment is used for client reverts on a Job (concept, artwork, major changes, etc). These can be minor or major changes, or an addition designed to improve the Job Bag.
Amendments can be internal or external reverts. Internal amendments are created from within the agency and are not chargeable to the client. External amendments originate from the client, and after a certain number of amendments, they might be billed.
Any changes made to the Material deadline and Media Start dates, as well as the Spec fields will be updated on the Job Bag.
Amendment changes can be tracked using Revision History, which will allow Traffic to see who made changes and when, and manage the Job according to the new dates.
Amendments have to be sent to the relevant distribution list to ensure everybody involved is aware of any changes.
When you create an amendment you will notice that the amendment contains selected information from the Job Bag. This includes the Client, Product, Element, and others. You can also print, email, copy form from one job to another, attach external documents and create a template on the Amendment form.
