Updating Service Task Types

  • Dark

Article Summary

In Mobileforce FSM, agents can optionally assign a single Service Task Type to a Service Task to organize or even route tasks to specific offices, territories, or dispatchers.

  • An organization creates Residential and Commercial Service Task Types to differentiate their client types.
  • An organization create Service Contract and Standard Customer to organize or even prioritize Service Tasks based on the customer type.

Accessing the Service Task Type page

Only users with admin privileges can add, edit, or delete the list of Service Task Types. Once these types are created, Agents can assign them to any Service Task. For more information, see Creating and Editing Service Tasks

From the Field Service Setup page, click Service Task Types.

  • Click the image26 button to create a new type.
  • Click the image-1651687637794 button to review or edit an existing type.
