How can I manage and approve jobs? (PLUS feature)

With Jobs on RoosterMoney you can manage chores with ease.

Note! We are currently rolling out a new version of our Jobs feature. Take a look at the screens to check which version you are on, and then find the correct instructions below.

Chores v1 

If your chores list says ‘Jobs’ at the top, has a colourful background, and has separate allowance jobs and extra jobs lists, then you are on Chores v1. 

(If you are keen to move over to Chores v2 just send our team a quick message in the app and we can move you over!) 

Chores v2

If your chores list says your child’s name at the top, has a white background, and has both allowance jobs and extra jobs in the same list, then you are on Chores v2.


Chores v1

When on the Job's dashboard, you'll see two tabs you can switch between:

  1. Allowance Jobs
  2. Extra Jobs

You can tap between the two to view the jobs list or add a job for the given type.

When viewing Allowance Jobs, you'll see all jobs that need to be done in that allowance period, and your child's current progress towards completing them. 

The Allowance Jobs list is split into four categories based on their current state:

  • Awaiting Approval: Jobs marked as complete by your child that are waiting for you to approve
  • Overdue: Incomplete jobs past the date they needed to be done by that can be marked as approved or missed
  • Coming Up: Jobs for the remaining days in that allowance period 
  • Done / Missed: Jobs that have been approved or marked as missed by the parent (this section is collapsed which you can expand)

Your children can also complete jobs and send them to you for approval in the app!

You can give your child their own log-in details or use the 'Switch User' feature so they can mark jobs off as they complete them from their account.  This article shows you how to set this up.  

When your child marks a job as complete, you (and any secondary parents/guardians) will get notified to review the job. If all looks well, you can approve the job, but if it's not up to scratch, you also have the option to re-open it!

This can be done by clicking on the Job awaiting approval on your child's Job's dashboard, where you'll see the option to approve or re-open (and if overdue, mark as missed). 

Quick-swipe to save time

You also have the option to quick-swipe to approve or re-open jobs from the notification's inbox or within the Job's dashboard itself. Just use your finger to swipe left to Approve and right to Re-open.

What if my child didn't complete a Job?

If your child hasn't completed a Job, you can keep the list tidy by marking these overdue jobs as 'Missed'. Just tap on the job in the overdue section and you'll see the option! 

Can I undo a job I have marked as complete or missed?

No, once you have marked a job as completed or missed you cannot undo this. 


Chores v2

The Jobs list is split into five categories based on the status of the job:

  • To Approve: Jobs marked as complete by your child for you to approve. You can choose the following actions for these jobs:
    • Approve - if the job is complete mark it as approved
    • Not done - if the job is not done and will not be done you can mark it as not done
    • Re open - if the job was not done properly you can reopen it to move it back to the to do section
  • Overdue: Incomplete jobs that are past the date they needed to be done by. You can choose the following actions for these jobs:
    • Approve - if the job is complete mark it as approved
    • Not done - if the job is not done and will not be done, you can mark it as not done
  • To do: Jobs that are to be done today or are available to be done any time. You can choose the following actions for these jobs:
    • Approve - if the job is complete mark it as approved
  • Approved: Jobs that have been approved 
  • Not done: Jobs that have been marked as not done 

As the parent, you can change the status of a job in the list in two ways:

  • One by one: to just change the status of one specific instance of a job, tap on the name of the job in the list. One the next screen you will see buttons at the bottom of the screen that you can change the status to. 
  • In bulk: to change the status of several jobs at once, tap on the circle job image on the left of each job that you want to change. Once you have selected all of the jobs to update choose the option at the top of the screen to change the status. 

Your children can also complete jobs and send them to you for approval! 

You can give your child their own log-in details or use the 'Switch User' feature so they can mark jobs off as they complete them from their account.  This article shows you how to set this up.  

When your child marks a job as complete, you (and any secondary parents/guardians) will get notified to review the job. If all looks well, you can approve the job, but if it's not up to scratch, you also have the option to re-open it!
