Managing FSM Roles

Article Summary

Mobileforce roles allow you to define the roles and functions of Mobileforce FSM.


Mobileforce FSM roles are completely configurable and customizable based on your organization's needs. The most common Field Service roles are the following:

  • Admins: Users who initially create other FSM users, tables, and relationships to configure Mobileforce FSM to the needs of your organization.
  • Agents: Users who create service tasks based on customer requests (from emails, phone calls, chat, or text messages). Agents typically assign Service Tasks to a specific office to be scheduled.
  • Dispatchers: Users who schedule Service Tasks assigned to their office, as well as route and dispatch Technicians between appointments.
  • Technicians: Users who complete Service Tasks in the field, based on their configured schedule.

You can configure these roles to restrict users from specific pages and functions

For example, you can specify that users assigned the Dispatcher role have access to the Schedule & Dispatch page; however, users assigned the Technician role do not.

All roles must be assigned to a Parent Role. Mobileforce provides a default role that has no parent.
