If mobile device has the ability, automatically call the phone number selected or email the email address selected.


Change status of workorder

The schedulable user can easily change the status of a workorder item so that those back at the office know what is occurring

For example, when work is completed at one site, change the status to Completed, and change the status on the next workorder item to On Route To, or if just on site, change status to On Site  (note  that these are just example Workorder Statuses, as you can create your own)

NOTE: if the status does not show for a workorder it is because a) the user logged in does not have Read/Write rights to workorders or b) the workorder has been checkmarked Service Completed.

Recent list

Users can view most recently viewed objects, saving time by being able to go directly to the object they were recently working on.




Client Signature


NOTE: Signature capture requires a browser that is HTML 5 compliant such as IE 9.0+, FIREFOX 3.0+, SAFARI 3.0+, CHROME 3.0+, OPERA 10.0+, IPAD 1.0+, IPHONE 1.0+, ANDROID 1.0+  .



The Signature hyperlink is on the bottom of page displayed when user selects a workorder from the main Schedule


Select to display the signature box where your client can sign - select the OK when completed


Note that in keeping with the minimalist philosophy of MBI for speed, the signature is captured however it is not displayed as a graphic image anywhere in MBI







What displays in the signature header or footer or title can be set in the Signature section of Global Settings



Want your client to receive a report of the work performed along with their signature?


Edit the Client Notifications for the region of the client, creating an active Workorder Status Changed notification set to a specific status with your report template selected that shows the signature image

When out in the field, your schedulable user can have the client sign via MBI.

And than your schedulable user sets the workorder to that specific workorder status, and the client will receive via email the report showing their signature!
