Why are my engineers not receiving their jobs?

The main reason why engineers sometimes do not receive their jobs is that they do not have a strong or reliable enough internet connection to allow them to download the job information to their devices. In some cases, jobs can take up to 10 minutes to arrive on your engineer’s device that uses the offline version of the application. In the unlikely event that your jobs do not arrive on your engineer’s device after 10 minutes, please get in touch with our customer support team who will investigate this issue right away.
