The Web Portal Calendar
The web portal gives your office-based staff a digital calendar to organise your work. Events can be viewed by the day/week/month.
Clicking on available space on the calendar will open a "New event" window.
Here you can:
Set an Activity Type - the Activity Type can be selected from a pre-defined list that describes the type of job the event is for.
Search for an existing customer - if the customer is already in the system you can find them here and select them for the event.
Add a new customer - if the customer is new in the system, you can click here to add that customer.
Search for an existing job address - if the job address is already in the system you can find them here and select them for the event.
Add a new job address - if the job address is new in the system, you can click here to add that job address and it will be associated with the customer you have selected.
Search for an existing job - if the job is already in the system you can find it here and select it for the event.
Add a new job - if you need to create a new job, you can click here to add that job and it will be associated with the job address you have selected.
Add Activity Notes - you can provide more information to your engineers i.e. 'Boiler in the cellar'.
Select an engineer - you can assign an engineer to this event, or mark it as unassigned for later scheduling.
Set an Activity Outcome - you can select an activity outcome from a pre-defined list. This is normally updated by your engineer who is assigned to the event.
Set the date and time of the event - by default, this will be where you clicked to create an event. All-day events will show across the top of the calendar.
Finally, saving the event will add this to your calendar
