Technician two-way chatLast updated on 09/14/2022

With two-way chat, you can send and reply to customer chats while using the ServiceTitan Mobile app. This helps you respond to unread messages and stay up to date on the conversation with customers.

Things to know

  • Chat has to be enabled. For more information on how to do this, see Set up and enable Chat.

  • Technicians can’t initiate a text but can respond to existing chat threads.

  • Technicians can respond to unread messages per job.

  • If there are multiple technicians on the job, they can all chat in the Chat section.

  • Technician chat threads won’t be visible in the ServiceTitan Mobile app if the chat thread has been closed in ServiceTitan. When the thread is re-opened, technician chat will reappear after refreshing the mobile app.
