Can I Pause a Job?

Yes, you can pause any job that has been started.

 What is Pause Job?

When you pause a job, it will remain on the worker's schedule as a job that still needs to be completed, but the paused time will not be included in the job duration when an invoice is created. 

Workers can update a paused job's custom fields and invoice information, but cannot complete any steps. Completing a step will automatically unpause the job.

 Why use Pause Job?

Pause a job allows your workers to take a break or stop the job clock should they need to go and do something else.  It enables you to invoice your customers for the time actually spent working on their jobs.
