Adding Location to Mobile Manager RO Screen

Post by ricmorin »

On Mobile Manager, there is a field to change status. Are there plans to add location too? We really need location so advisors know which bays are open.

Thanks for the question.
Many shops build bay locations into the Status section of Mitchell. These carry over to the tablet.
Check it out. I am sure it will work for you.
If not let me know.

With six bays, a parking lot and two other locations, that will make the status list VERY long, especially when there are 3 techs and 3 statuses per tech. That would be 20 statuses each. That doesn't sound very appealing. Why can't we just have a location field that mirrors Manager? There's plenty of room.

Ric,
Agreed. I will put the suggestion in for our developers to see what they can do. There is a major push to further develop Work Flow Manager into a more complete package by years end. I see this as a possible part of this.

Thanks for your questions and input.

Hey John,

I see that the major overhaul of Workflow Manager has been completed. Great work! Any word on our location dilemma? Techs move from bay to bay and locations really help us manage this.

Ric,
There has been discussion about "location and or shop location" being part of the Workflow Manager but it has not been finalized as of yet. I will inquire.
