Timesheets adjusted manually before a technician leaves a location will not change when a technician leaves the location, causing issues with Geo Zones on Jobs/Techs.


Follow these steps to resolve the issue:

  1. Do not manually adjust timesheets while a technician is at the location if you want geofencing to dictate timesheets.

  2. To view all Technicians with colors automatically chosen in ServiceTitan, go to the Dispatch board and select Map 2.0.

Note: If you need clarification on what the tenant means by Geo Zones, ask them if they are referring to geo-fencing by GPS. If they are, ask them where in ServiceTitan they were expecting to see the change in location reflected. It is likely they were expecting to see it on the appointment's arrival/start and end time.
