Create a form in ServiceTitanLast updated on 04/21/2022

You can create forms in ServiceTitan and add them to a job, a call, a customer, a location or equipment. Forms can be filled by technicians in the mobile app or by employees in the office.

Things to know

  • ServiceTitan supports two kinds of forms:

    • ServiceTitan Forms—Designed directly in ServiceTitan.

    • PDFs—Designed outside of ServiceTitan, converted to a PDF, and then uploaded to ServiceTitan.

  • You can add authorization and acknowledgment paragraphs to a form, just like you can to an invoice.

  • Adding triggers to a form alerts technicians to complete the form based on the situation, such as a job being changed to a certain status. To learn more, see Set up form triggers.

  • If you want to create a form similar to one you already have duplicate an existing form, make any changes and save it.

  • You can see photos technicians attach through a form in the Audit trail and Files tab of the job.

  • Be sure to add business units (BUs) to your forms. If your business has lots of forms, splitting them up by BU helps reduce how many are displayed to technicians. For example, on an HVAC job the tech only sees HVAC forms. This way they spend less time finding the right forms in the mobile app.
