Viewing and Modifying Work Orders in SC Mobile

    Work orders logged through either SC Mobile or the Dashboard will appear in the work order list in SC Mobile. You may see either all work orders for one location, or all work orders across all location(s) to which you have access.

    Note: SC Mobile does not follow permissions based on Location Note Headers.

    While viewing the work order list you may:

    • view work order details;
    • filter work orders by status, category, priority, and/or trade; and
    • modify work order details, including reassign work orders (for permissioned users).

    You may also create a new work order and view/add notes and attachments.

    1. On the SC Mobile home page, tap Locations.
    2. Locate and tap the desired location. The work orders for that location appears.

    Viewing Work Order Details

    The Work Orders list displays work orders for both the past 90 days and 90 days into the future. You will see a brief overview of each listed work order; tapping a work order will give you more details.

    Work Order Overview

    Details of a Work Order in a Work Order List

    • Work Order Status: a colored box indicating the status the work order is in, in line with the statuses in Service Automation. In this example, the work order is in the “Open” status.

      Work Order Statuses

    • Work Order Highlight: Only the trade, issue description, store number and location, and provider assigned to the work order are listed. In this example,
      • the work order is in the “Electrical” trade
      • the issue description is “Back Area/Lighting…”
      • the Location ID is “001” located in “NY 11210” and
      • the service provider is “iFixx Services”.
    • Schedule Date: Approximately when the service provider plans to be at your location. In this example, the service provider is scheduled to arrive “in 6 days”.
      • Tip: When a provider is scheduled to arrive today you will see a time. Otherwise, you will see either “in x days” or “x days ago” or “x month(s) ago”.
    • Priority: The number of days from the Schedule Date the service provider should arrive onsite to work on the issue, as configured by your administrator. In this example, the priority is “7 days”.

    Filtering Work Orders

    To help narrow down your work order list, you may filter by Status, Category, Priority, and/or Trade. This is beneficial, for example, when you want to only see the repair work orders, in-progress work orders or emergency work orders.

    • “All” means that no filters are applied for that section, as illustrated next to “Trades”.
    • A number indicates how many were selected, and thus applying the filter.
    • To see the full list, you must reset the filters on the bottom of the page, and then apply the change.
