Update Work Order Numbering

By | 2017-08-11T16:13:56+00:00 October 22nd, 2015|getting started, User Tips|0 Comments

When you first subscribe to Intuit Field Service Management you will likely review our First Time Setup video.  While not covered in the video, we want to point out you can configure your work orders in IFSM to start at a number other than “001”.  You can also configure how many digits the work order numbers will have before they roll over to “000”.  You can also configure a unique prefix for work orders within each work zone.

To update the Work Order Numbering:

  1. Go to Settings/Work Zones and click Edit on the right side
  2. Scroll down to option 5, Work Order Numbering
  3. Choose Custom and click Change
  4. Input the desired starting number and choose the desired number of digits from the drop-down menu. Work Order Numbering detail

Create New Customers In The Field

By | 2017-08-11T16:13:59+00:00 August 25th, 2015|Android, getting started, iPhone, Mobile|0 Comments

This video shows how your field service technician can create a new customer in the field via the Intuit Field Service Management mobile app.

Typically your office dispatcher or your QuickBooks user(s) create new customers.  However, sometimes your field service techs may need to create a new customer in the field.  Once the customer is created the tech can proceed with the “work order wizard” to capture the problem and assign the work order to himself/herself.  (Note:  the Field Supervisor role can use the mobile app “Team Work” menu area to re-assign team work.)

More videos for your field techs on our Best Practices page.

Welcome to QuickBooks.Corrigo.com, the new website dedicated to “all things Intuit Field Service Management”, powered by Corrigo!

Intuit Field Service Management is the preferred solution for service, installation, and repair companies using QuickBooks Online and QuickBooks Desktop Pro, Premier, and Enterprise Editions. We even have some businesses using it standalone – not connected to QuickBooks at all.  Typical service industries include, but are not limited to:  HVAC, Heating, Cooling, Plumbing, Mechanical, Electrical, Garage/Overhead Door, Alarms/Security Systems, Audio Visual/Home Entertainment, Pool Service, Office Equipment, Medical Equipment, and more!

QuickBooks.Corrigo.com unifies all of the Free Test Drive Information, Paid Subscription Setup, Training Videos, Local Expert Listings, and our Blog formerly located at FieldServiceSuccess.com – all in one place.  The menu bar at the top of the page organizes content into seven areas – position your mouse over each option to explore, or click to access the full content.

If you are new to Intuit Field Service Management, take a moment with our Tour or Try it Now links to see how we can help your business “get more work done, get paid faster, and do payroll better”!

Whether your technicians use smart phones or tablets, whether they are using Apple devices or Android devices, even if some of them prefer paper work orders and a clipboard, Intuit Field Service Management is the go-to solution designed for your dispatcher and service team with the best integration with QuickBooks for your office team.

For those who are eager to start using their Intuit Field Service Management, we recommend the First Time Users, Ongoing Success, and Support areas. For those who want a customized demonstration and personalized setup, deployment and training assistance — perhaps a data migration from a previous software solution, too — we strongly recommend engaging one of our certified Local Experts who can meet with you in-person or online as you wish.

Our News & Blog link shares posts and updates, as well as research from Corrigo and Intuit, such as our annual research on popular devices for field service technicians. Follow us on Twitter to stay up-to-date with our News & Blog updates.
