Showcase

Defect Quote Details

The details section of your Defect Quote is now more streamlined, with the most important elements being brought to the forefront. Functionality has not been removed, but now as you move through the statues, all functionality will be in the 'Actions' dropdown.

Task Dispatch Page Revamp

Reporting and Billing requirements are now more front-and-centre; all other task and property details have been removed from this page. If your client or property is set to manual billing/reporting, you can now 'ignore' it on each individual dispatch so you can send that dispatch without having to remove the manual setting from the property or client.

If the client and/or property have their requirements field filled in, the panel will be orange. Click the panel to see the requirements.

If manual billing or reporting is set, the panel will be red and will stop the dispatch from sending until you click 'ignore'.

New Product Types Available

When you add a new product, you can now set it up as a 'Subcontracted' or 'Expense' type. Profitability will split these into their own sections so you can evaluate these costs separately.

Appointment Categories

You can now add categories to appointments. These categories will colour code the appointments to help certain appointments stand out or take priority. There are 6 colours to choose from. These categories are just for the office staff to see.

Configure and add new categories by going to Tools > Site Configuration > Appointments.

Forecasted Recurring Appointments

If you have recurring appointments set up on your services, you can now switch on/off the ability to see the appointments that will be created in the future. You'll be able to see which property default technician will be set against that appointment and its task, the estimated duration of that appointment and what services will be performed. Hyperlinks to the places that let you edit those details will be available. A Future Appointment will be dark grey.

Property Compliance > Highest Remark Severity

Property compliance has been completely removed and replaced with the highest severity of remarks you have on that property. This will help you determine which properties require attention.
