Article summary


The Joblogic Planner allows users to schedule and keep an overview of their engineer’s day, week and month. This guide will help you to understand how to log a new job and visit via the Planner within the Joblogic back office. It’ll also explain how to assign an already existing job visit via the planner.

Logging a new job and visit via Planner

To log a new job and visit via Planner, select the required time slot under the applicable date and engineer of the planner calendar.

Once you have clicked the time slot an ‘Add Job’ window will appear where the job’s details can be filled in.

Once you have filled out the required information regarding the job, scroll down to the Job allocation section to assign the engineer's visit. The engineer and visit time will already be populated for you (based on the time and engineer selected when first selecting via the planner calendar) but you can edit the Start and End date, if needed. The “Deploy to Mobile” option can be marked if you want to immediately send the visit to your engineer. Press the ‘Save’ option once you are happy with the entry.

The job will then be created and a visit to the job will be allocated to the chosen engineer on the planner. A pop-up notification will also display confirming this.
