When you enter new customer details and create an appointment, the system will automatically save the contact information. Next time you want to create an appointment, you can click the search icon to choose from your list, rather than entering the data again.

You can then confirm the date and start/end time before choosing ‘Create New Appointment’




You can either add a quote from an appointment by clicking the tick, or by going into the appointment record and clicking Add Quote

Alternatively, you can click Build Quote from your main dashboard page




If you are choosing to build a quote from your dashboard, you will firstly need to enter the contact information and issue description. (If you add a quote from the initial appointment, these details will be filled in already and the app will skip this process)

You will then be transferred to your Quote Details page

Here, you can add Parts, Labour costs or Other items if necessary.

Similar to the contact list, you can select the search icon to choose from your previous listed parts, or to choose from the City Plumbing website (if you have set up your account via Settings)


To select a City Plumbing part, click the relevant item and you’ll be presented with the Product Details page, where you can amend the quantity if needed, and then click Add to Quote.



You can also add Extras for any optional offers you want to provide.


Finally, you have the option to Preview, Email, Accept and Delete


The preview option will open the quote template. You should be able to download or print from here should you need to.

The Extras will not be included in the overall total for your quote; however the prices will show for your customers reference should they wish to go ahead with any.


Alternatively, click Email to send the quote directly via your chosen email provider.

When it comes to Accepting the quote, you will then be able to select which parts they have chosen and any extras that were agreed upon.

Next, you can either choose to Accept the Quote, or Accept and Schedule.


Accepting the quote moves it to your Jobs section, without a date or time associated with it.

Accept & Schedule will take you to your planner, where you can choose a slot and click Save. This again will move it to your Jobs section.


If you have chosen any City Plumbing parts, you will need to create this order. You’ll need to choose whether to collect it or have it delivered.

To choose a collection branch, click the Collect At option at the top


From here, use the Search box to type your city to filter your local branches and then click on your chosen branch.


Alternatively, click the Delivery To option in the top right.


Manoeuvre the map to your chosen location. Click ‘Use this point’ to confirm or enter the address manually.


If you have more than one part, you can opt to have each item collected or delivered on an individual basis.


Click Create Order. Your order has now been sent to City Plumbing who will be in touch.



Your Jobs page has two tabs: one for In Progress jobs and another for Completed jobs. Use the search function at the top to filter down your list as needed, by searching a client's name or the job description.

Any jobs that have been scheduled will have the date and time visible on the main list here.

You can Call or Email your customer from this screen by clicking the relevant buttons too.

You can log any payments you receive via the Take Payment button. From here, you can choose Cash or Card


If you received Cash, click this option and you’ll be taken to a new screen to enter the payment details. The details will be auto filled to the contact's name and full amount. You can amend the amount if a deposit was taken for example, and then click Pay Now.


The payment will now show on the Job Details page, along with the updated outstanding balance.


If you wish to take a card payment, you will firstly need to connect to Stripe. This can be done in the Settings as mentioned earlier, however it can also be done as you take payment for the first time.


Again, amend the contact / amount if needed, and then click Pay Now. If you are not yet connected to Stripe, you’ll receive a message



If you click Yes, you’ll be taken to a new screen to Connect your account. Please be aware charges will apply.

Click Connect Account, and then enter your Stripe email address



Now you are connected, you can take card payments through TradeHero. Enter the customer details and then click Pay.


When you have finished the work, you can click Complete to close the job. This job will still be available to you via the Completed tab. Here, you will still be able to edit costs, take payment (if payment is still outstanding), or raise an invoice.

You also have the ability to reopen the job should it be required. It will simply move back to the In Progress tab.



There are 11 forms available for you to use where necessary.

If you start a form and come away from that screen or the app in general, it will be saved, and you can come back to it later.


Once a form is completed, you’ll get a PDF preview, which can be printed, shared, or emailed


Outstanding Payments

This screen has two tabs; one for Outstanding payments, and another for Paid.

In the outstanding section, you’ll see any jobs that have been completed or have an invoice against them (not necessarily completed) and have a value higher than 0 where the full payment has not yet been taken.
