Making Lists of Technicians

Why make Groups of Technicians?

You can organize Technician users into Groups so you can visualize their work in Scheduling, Magic Maps and throughout the System. 

This allows you to manage Routing, Visit reassignments, Mapping for a similar Technicians crews.   This ensures that these Routing and Scheduling Calendar views only show the same types of Technicians at a time, making visualizing their routes and reassigning their work that much easier and intuitive.

For example, you can group your Technicians in Groups such as:

  • Maintenance Technicians
  • Service Technicians 
  • Estimators
  • Sales Managers  

Where to go to set it up

You can manage, name, edit and delete your Groups of Technicians in two places:

  • Magic Maps view (click on Technicians)
  • Scheduling: Calendar and Today views  (click on Technicians)

This is particularly useful in reassigning visits in bulk for a no-show or retiring Technicians.   It also allows you to see who is the nearest skilled Technician to a time-sensitive customer need.
