Contractors can now save Favourites on their Contractor dashboard and see the Task's Category.
Contractors now have the ability to electronically sign a task which works the same as if a technician has done so via the app. The signature field will be on the 'Complete' popup.
Contractors can now fill out dynamic forms on their assigned tasks. They can also see any previously filled out forms on that task. 'Required' forms stop contractors from servicing assets. Contractors will not be able to send these forms straight to the client as technicians can do.

1. Automatic Reminders
When you create a Defect Quote, you can now set the number of days until the reminder is automatically sent. You can also set up a default number of days to appear on every quote going forward in Tools > Site Configuration > Settings > Quoting.
We are also looking into allowing users to block certain clients from getting reminders for defect quotes in a future release.
2. Editable Inspected Date
Making the Inspected date editable when a subcontractor is assigned is to help with those contractors who inspect tasks late. Tasks that are not subcontracted should still be inforcing their technicians to set this date.
3. Contractor Profile
You are now able to add 'Technicians' to the 'Contacts' tab of a Contractor's profile. The styling of this page as also changed slightly. The 'Portal' tab gives you a snap view of what that contractors see when they log in.
In a future release, your contractors will have the option to assign one of these 'Technicians' to every task assigned to them for their own internal processes. This will help your contractors to assign work when they only have one login to their portal. More information to come in next month's release notes.
