Managing an Inactive Service Provider from the Profile Page

    After you deactivate a service provider, you may want to do a further review of the service provider’s profile before deciding on the next course of action. From the profile of an inactive service provider, you can perform several actions such as reactivating/deleting the provider, sending a custom message, or exporting the provider information.

    Actions for Inactive Service Providers

    Reactivating an Inactive Service Provider

    After a further review of a deactivated service provider’s profile, in case you decide to resume working with the provider, you can reactivate the provider and start assigning work orders. You need to do one of the following to reactivate the provider:

    • To reactivate a temporarily deactivated provider: Reactivate in Compliance Manager and communicate to other facility management users that they may start assigning the provider to locations and work orders
    • To reactivate a permanently deactivated provider: Reactivate in Compliance Manager and add the provider information back to your subscriber account by contacting ServiceChannel.

    Deleting an Inactive Service Provider

    Should you choose to permanently stop working with a deactivated service provider, you can delete the provider from your private network.

    Important: Deleting a service provider in Compliance Manager does not automatically remove the provider from Service Automation. The service provider may still appear in Provider assignments in Service Automation. We strongly recommend that you remove the provider information from Service Automation by contacting ServiceChannel so you or your team does not inadvertently assign this provider to locations and dispatch future work orders.

    Should you choose to work with a deleted service provider again, you must send a new invitation and add the provider to your private network.
