Manage recurring servicesLast updated on 10/04/2022

Memberships typically include recurring services, which are service or maintenance visits for a customer’s service location. You can edit a recurring service from the service location record. For example, you can change a customer’s weekly landscaping visits from Monday to Wednesday.

Things to know

  • Based on frequency settings, recurring services generate recurring events, which can then be booked into jobs.

  • Recurring events appear in the Upcoming Appointments section of the Follow Up screen based on the filters you set.

  • The recurring services settings are used to pre-fill job details, but you can edit job information if, for example, a preferred technician is unavailable.

  • If you add a recurring service to an existing membership, the customer is not billed.

  • On a customer’s membership record, click View Audit Trail to view all edits to a membership and a membership’s recurring services. This makes it easier to identify who made edits and to resolve customer issues.
