Request Update from Technician

Request update from Technician

It’s important that fieldworkers regularly update their bookings to ensure that the office is made aware of any progress or issues, and so that they can be paid for completed jobs. If a fieldworker has not updated a booking for any reason, users can send an automatic email to request an update from all jobs they currently have on the awaiting update status.
