Set up job alerts
In the Scheduler tab in Reveal, you can view job alerts.
Job alerts display real-time updates so you can monitor the status of your jobs and see if technicians are delayed or have not read a dispatched job.
Alerts are enabled by default. You can disable or customise alerts in Account Settings in Reveal.
This article covers:
Viewing job alerts
- Click on the Scheduler tab in Reveal to see job alerts. If there are new alerts, the alert bell icon displays a red badge.
- If the new alert is a Tech delay alert, a red pill also displays below the alert bell.
- If there are no new alerts, the alert bell icon displays without the red badge.
Job alert types
The Job alerts panel displays two types of alert:
- Technician delay: You receive this alert if a technician's expected arrival time is 15 minutes later than the job start time.
- Job not read: You receive this alert if a technician has not read a dispatched job within 15 minutes* of receiving the job on their mobile device.
15 minutes is the default setting. You can change this in Settings.
