Manage employee and technician accountsLast updated on 09/09/2022
After you add employee and technician profiles in ServiceTitan, invite your team to create individual accounts or create accounts for them. Creating individual accounts for your office employees and technicians enables them to handle all business-related tasks through their ServiceTitan accounts and sync to your main company account, increasing your team’s overall efficiency in the office and in the field.
Things to know
Only administrators with proper permissions in ServiceTitan can send invitations and create accounts, including reset and change passwords for office employees and technicians.
If you haven’t already, make sure all office employee profiles include a unique email address and all technician profiles include either a unique email address or mobile phone number. This ensures they can receive verification codes and information via email or mobile phone number to activate their accounts or reset their passwords. For more on required fields, see Add or edit office employees or technician profiles.
Once the selected recipients receive your invitation, they can create an account and sign in:
Technicians who have only a mobile phone number in their profile receive invitation by text (SMS).
Invitation emails use the employee or technician email address as the username by default. The username can be changed when creating a password.
If you create an account for your employees or technicians and set a username and password, they will have to update the username and password at first sign-in.
About Active Directory: If you’re currently signing in to ServiceTitan using Active Directory Single Sign-on, you can sign in as you have been. The only difference is that if you create an employee or technician profile, you must add an email for employees and an email or mobile number for technicians in Active Directory.
All employees and technicians are required to update their password yearly (every 365 days from the last time it was updated).
To learn more, see Password and Login Policy frequently asked questions.
Create an account
Once you add an employee or technician profile, you can create an account for them or invite them to join:
Go to the navigation bar and click the Settings icon. In the side panel, click People.
Click Employees or Technicians depending on the profile type you want to access to create an account.
Find the existing profile for which you want to create an account and click Edit
If you are creating an account for Technicians, double-check you have the Enable Mobile Access toggle set to Enabled. This ensures you see all fields to create an account. This field applies only to technician profiles.
Go to the New Account Status field and select one of three options:
Create an account later
This is helpful when you're adding or editing a profile but prefer to create an account at a later time.
Send invitation via email or SMS
Select this to send an invitation to the employee or technician using the email address or SMS if the technician only has a mobile number in their profile. This enables the recipient to create an account on their own. Technicians who only have a mobile phone number on file receive the invitation via a text and can tap it to create an account in a browser outside of the ServiceTitan Mobile app. Tip: You can also send invitations in bulk to multiple users. For more, see the Send create account invitations in bulk section.
Create a username and password
Use this option to create an account, including enter a username and password, for the employee or technician rather than having them create an account themselves.
All passwords must meet the following requirements:
10 or more characters (alpha-numeric, including symbols)
At least one uppercase and one lowercase letter (A-Z, a-z)
At least one digit (0–9)
Must not use a commonly used password (for example, passwords like “password123”, “123456”, and “hunter2” are common passwords and should not be used)
Note: When an employee or technician signs in for the first time using their username and password, they will be asked to change their password. Their new password must meet the same password requirements when changing the username and password.
When done, click Save Changes. Once you send invitations or create an account for the employee or technician, you can track statuses and account verification in the Employees or Technicians home screen, along with username and other profile details. For more on statuses, see Add or edit employee or technician profiles.
Send create account invitations in bulk
You can send account invitations in bulk to employees or technicians:
Go to Settings > People >Employees or People >Technicians depending on the people type you want.
To send account invitations to all, select the checkbox in the column with the box. If you want to select specific employees/technicians, select the ones you want to include in the bulk password reset.
Click the Actions dropdown and select Send Account Invite.
A confirmation prompt appears.
A box will open asking to confirm you want to send invites to selected users who do not already have accounts created. Click Send to send the account invites. To return to your selections, click Back.
Accept invitation to create an account
If you send an invitation to an employee or technician to create an account, they’ll get an email or text (SMS) to create their account, depending on the information in their individual employee or technician profile. Opting to create an account takes them through the account creation process. All invitations use the email address in the profile as the default username, which the employee or technician can change once they have verified their account.
Email and text invitations
Office employees who receive the invitation will get it by email and have access to create an account using a desktop or laptop. Technicians who have only a mobile phone number on file will receive the invitation via text that will include a link to create their account in a browser that opens to a Create account workflow, not in the ServiceTitan Mobile app. Technicians are only required to set up a username and password. Internet access is also required.
There are two ways to reset passwords: Employees or technicians can reset their password from the sign-in screen at any time, or your company administrators can reset passwords for them in ServiceTitan. You can also send password reset emails in bulk to employees and technicians.

Note: Employees and technicians must first go through account verification to be able to change their password.
