Meet Corrigo!

It was great to meet many of our Intuit Field Service Management customers last year at “QBConnect”!  This is an annual event for all things QuickBooks — for customers, prospective customers, Pro Advisors, and Intuit Resellers and partners.   Corrigo had a booth last year and we’ll have a booth again at this year’s event October 24-26 2016 in San Jose, CA.

Featured speakers for October 2016 QuickBooks Connect are:  Saquille O’Neal, Malcolm Gladwell, and Tony Hawk. You can save $150 on tickets to attend by registering online with this promotion code: QBC16CONNECT

What is it like to attend QuickBooks Connect?

It’s exciting!  Lots to learn!  Great opportunities to meet with peers, customers, prospective customers!  Very compelling speakers and live entertainment!

Keeping in line with Corrigo’s focus on the service industry, our team was wearing “safety orange” logo shirts – you couldn’t miss us last year!

It was at the October 2015 that many of us were first introduced to Death Wish Coffee, winner of the “Small Business Big Game” competition for a 30-second TV commercial during the biggest-football-game-of-the-year the name of which can’t be used without permission of the NFL itself.  Death Wish Coffee had a really great advertisement and it has been great to see how well their business has done in the first six months following their commercial: check out the Death Wish Coffee Half-Time Report.

We enjoyed a very energetic and inspirational opening session with Sekou Andrews/Poetic Voice and Entrepreneur.  Sekou did a great job capturing the many roles and challenges small businesses owners face each day and energized the audience for the event.

Oprah Winfrey was the keynote speaker who spoke from the heart about intention, energy, brand, and so much more.  Speakers included Bill Rancic/The Apprentice, Jessica Alba & Brian Lee/The Honest Company, Brad Smith/CEO of Intuit, Scott Cook/Founder of Intuit, and Robert Herjavec/Shark Tank. In case you missed the live 2015 event, Intuit has posted most of the speakers’ videos online, here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLVxBmyedTVhQyNtMuifv5mxAT4UT0qfck

Understanding Custom Fields

By | 2017-08-11T16:13:56+00:00 June 22nd, 2016|Android, getting started, iPhone, Mobile, User Tips|0 Comments

Based on many years in the service management industry, Corrigo provides the primary fields your business will want to track related to your customers, sites, work orders, and invoices.  When you want to track something unique then you can use either Custom Fields or Equipment Attributes.

When using custom fields, you have the ability to define the type of field and you also have the ability to hide the field from the field techs using the Intuit Field Service Management mobile app (IFSM).

To set up a new custom field:

  1. Log into your IFSM account from the browser and click Settings/Company/Custom Fields
  2. Click Add a New Custom Field
  3. Label your field with a name (such as “Source of call”)
  4. Choose the type of custom field from the drop-down list (see below)
  5. Optionally, choose the length of the custom field (valid only on “String” type)
  6. Click the Add button to add the field

Custom Field choices


To create a “drop-down pick list” for the String type custom field:

  1. After creating the custom field you are back a a list of all custom fields.  Click Edit on the right side of the custom field requiring drop-down menu choices
  2. The String type field must have a length of 40 characters or less in order to enable the pick list option
  3. In the Pick List column, click “Add” to add choices.

What the custom fields look like in the browser interface:

A brief explanation of the different types of custom fields:

  • String = free form numbers and text, with spaces and most special characters.  Also supports drop down pick lists for strings up to 40 characters
  • Integer = whole numbers only
  • Float = numbers with decimals
  • Money = auto-formats to dollars and cents
  • Phone number = formats to reflect a seven-digit phone number and area code
  • Date = month/day/year formatting from a calendar-like interface
  • Time = drop-down list of times
  • Bool = Yes or No radio button

Custom fields can be hidden from your field technicians via the mobile app.  This helpful video shows how to create a custom field and how to hide/show the field from the mobile users.  The following are examples of how custom fields can appear on the mobile application:
