Assign default technicians

Setting a default technician on a property allows you to automatically assign a technician to a task. It takes into account the Service Group applied to the service so you can have a different default technician per Service Group on a property.

To add/edit a default technician on a property

Step 1: Go to the relevant property and click on the 'Services' or 'Routines' tab.

Step 2: Select the white button Allocate Default Technicians.


Step 3: Click on the Edit default technicians button.


Step 4: Match technician to the Service Group and click on Save default technicians.

NOTE: You will need to create Service Groups before you will be able to add a default technician. See this article to help you create a Service Group: Adding Service Groups.
