Create a new Job with pre-filled data

Automatically create a new job with job data

Jobs data can be pre-filled with customer data from outside the Skedulo application. You can pass the required data to the relevant job fields through a URL request to pre-fill the job fields on the Create Job form.

Using the form. namespace for field values      

The namespace for pre-filling form data is form. followed by the parameter, with the format form.<Parameter> in the URL.

For example, the following URL provides the job parameters on a new job and opens the Create Jobs form in Skedulo with the values pre-filled.

https://new.skedulo.com/createJob?form.Type=Upgrade&form.Description=Test+Job&form.Urgency=Normal&form.Duration=30

The example above creates a job with the following pre-filled information:

  1. Job Type: Upgrade
  2. Description: Test Job
  3. Urgency: Normal
  4. Duration: 30

Pre-filled job form.

After the pre-filled job page opens in the Skedulo application you can complete any other information fields that you require. For example, you can see in the screenshot above that we have only provided basic job information and that other mandatory fields such as Address and Region must be completed.

Confirm that the data you have pre-filled is correct, then click Save to create the job.
