How does it work?
Once the application has been installed on your mobile device please enter your IVR Pin. After logging into the application you can search for a work order by tracking number, work order number, or service ID.
The system will then take you to the check-in page for that specific work order. The check-in page shows important information regarding the order: trade name, scheduled date, current status, and description. Here you may check-in and begin your work (date and time are on top for your convenience). You also have the option to add a photo/video of the issue before you begin your work that will show up along with the work order in the ServiceChannel system. After you hit "Check In" a status for the work order will change, as well as the option to "Check Out" and ability to change the status of the order.
