After you assign technicians to an appointment, you can dispatch them to the appointment so they can begin working on the job.

Dispatch a technician and mark them as arrived

From the office, you can dispatch technicians to their job, and mark them as arrived when they get to the job site. Technicians with the appropriate permissions can dispatch themselves and mark themselves as arrived. A technician can only be dispatched to or working on one appointment at a time. To dispatch a technician:

  1. Search for the job.

  2. Go to the Scheduled Appointments section.

  3. Click the More icon-more.png icon on the appointment you want to dispatch to.

  4. Click Dispatch/Cancel Dispatch.

  5. Choose the technician you want to dispatch or cancel.

  6. Click the More icon-more.png icon on the appointment card.

  7. Click Arrive.

  8. Choose the technician who has arrived. Tip: If no other technicians have been dispatched, you can use the quick action button on the appointment card.
