Adding Notes and Photos to a Job
One of the best ways to capture information about a Job is to add Notes and Photos to the Job Details. Often, a Technician in the field needs to communicate some details about a Job back to individuals in the office or capture an image of a repair, damage, or product serial number, or other information for the records. Similarly, office personnel might need to communicate time-sensitive updates about a Job, questions for a Technician to ask, or other vital data.
This article will show you how to add and open Notes and Photos on both the mobile app and the web application.
Click on the Job that you wish to add a Note/Photo.
In Job Details, scroll down to the Notes and Photos cards, and click on the Plus (+) sign to add an item.
If you're adding a Note, you can type in the field and then hit Save.
