Within ServiceTrade, Appointments are the groups of Services that represent a body of work to be performed by one or more Techs, at a specific point in time. This article will guide users through managing those Appointments via the Job page.

 

Scheduling Multi-Day Appointments

This section will cover scheduling Multiple Appointments for a Single Service

and Multiple Appointments for Multiple Services.

 

Creating Multiple Appointments for a Single Service

  1. From the Job page, click the text "Schedule This Appointment." The text then becomes fields you can use to schedule your Appointment.

  2. Click on the field containing the date, and a new option will appear to "Choose multiple days."MultiDay2.png
  3. Click each date for which an Appointment is needed and then click "Done."MultiDay3.png
  4. Finish by selecting the desired start time and expected duration and clicking the blue "Save" button to the right. You will now see multiple, identical copies of your Appointments.

Note: Appointments created from a single service are copies of that original service. This means that marking one instance of the service as complete will mark all instances complete. 

 

Creating Multiple Appointments for Multiple Services

  1. To schedule multiple blank Appointments, Click the "Add New Appointment or Service" button.
  2. Then click "Save."

  3. After creating this blank Appointment, follow steps 1-4 above to create multiple blank Appointments.

 

You can now add services to these Appointments as you have previously.

  • Creating multiple blank Appointments allows job creators to account for multiple-day jobs that cover a variety of tasks.
  • Example: Suppose your company handles waste disposal. In that case, you might schedule one Appointment for the delivery of a receptacle, another Appointment for pickup, and another for drop-off at a disposal facility.

 

Releasing Appointments to Technicians

Canceling Appointments

With ServiceTrade you can cancel a Service, an Appointment, or a Job. Canceling a Job will close the Job and cancel all the services and Appointments associated with the job.

When canceling an Appointment you will have three options. 

  • Keep this Appointment's services on this job - All open Services on this Appointment will be moved to an unscheduled Appointment on this job.
  • Remove this Appointment's services from this job - All open services on this Appointment will be removed from this job. They will be available at the job's location and can be added to other jobs.
  • Cancel this Appointment's services - Cancel all the open services on this job. They will no longer be available at the job's location, and they cannot be added to other jobs.

Note: Canceling a service on an Appointment will leave the option to reopen that Service. Deleting or removing will not.
