Change query to sum in MySQL database

Hi all. I have the following query, I have provided an Excel showing the data that is pumped out.

I want to be able to provide a sum of "slabs" and "dried ins". How can I do this keeping the same columns, but instead of "Job Type" I would want an additional 3 columns: Slabs, DriedIns and TotalCombined. The Excel file shows how it should look like.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

SELECT Builder, Community, Concat(Users.firstname, ' ', Users.lastname) As Super, Concat(ProjectManagers.FirstName, ' ', ProjectManagers.LastName) As ProjectManager, Concat(Salesperson.FirstName, ' ', Salesperson.LastName) As Salesperson ,jobtypedescription as JobType FROM BuilderCommunity LEFT OUTER JOIN FieldSuperDataEntry  ON BuilderCommunity.BuilderCommunityID = FieldSuperDataEntry.BuilderCommunityID LEFT OUTER JOIN FieldSuperAssignment ON BuilderCommunity.BuilderCommunityID = FieldSuperAssignment.BuilderCommunityID LEFT OUTER JOIN Users ON FieldSuperAssignment.UserID = Users.userid LEFT OUTER JOIN ProjectManagerAssignment ON BuilderCommunity.BuilderCommunityID = ProjectManagerAssignment.BuilderCommunityID LEFT OUTER JOIN ProjectManagers ON ProjectManagerAssignment.ProjectManagerID = ProjectManagers.ProjectManagerID LEFT OUTER JOIN SalespersonAssignment ON BuilderCommunity.BuilderCommunityID = SalespersonAssignment.BuilderCommunityID LEFT OUTER JOIN Salesperson ON SalespersonAssignment.SalesPersonID = Salesperson.SalesPersonID LEFT OUTER JOIN JobType ON FieldSuperDataEntry.Type = JobType.jobtypeid Order By Builder, Community

Give this a whirl <air code>..
SELECT Builder, Community, Super, ProjectManager, SalesPerson, 
   SUM(CASE WHEN JobType='Slab' THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) as Slabs, 
   SUM(CASE WHEN JobType='DriedIn' THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) as DriedIn
   COUNT(JOBType) as TotalCombined
FROM YourTableNameGoesHere
GROUP BY Builder, Community, Super, ProjectManager, SalesPerson
ORDER BY whatever

Also I have an article out there on SQL Server GROUP BY Solutions, with a couple of similar examples.

Hope this helps.
