Actual Times and Time Constraints

Actual Times

As a resource completes a workflow action (e.g., Accepts the job, checks-in, or completes the assignment) their times are dynamically recorded on the “Actual times” panel. Travel time and job duration are also recorded here.

To view where an when a job’s status transitioned on the map, check the box marked “Show status change locations on map.” Once checked, the map will display colored map pins at the location of each status change. Click on a pin to see a pop-up info summary containing the name of the resource, the transitioned status and the time of that transition. When several pins exist in close proximity, they are grouped and stacked on top of each other to help provide access to their details.

If the job has multiple resources allocated, the drop-down Resource field allows the scheduler to pull-up the details of any assigned individual (this applies to team leaders as well who are appropriately marked).

The actual times and time constraints panel.

Time Constraints

If time constraints have been applied to a job, they are displayed by clicking on the time constraints icon (or time constraint alert in the left-hand panel).

The colored time constraint tab (icon) is visible ONLY if the job was assigned time constraints when it was created.

A time constraint alert and the associated time constraints tab.

When multiple time constraints are applied to a job (perform this in the CRM), a Display on swimlane checkbox will enable the display of each time constraint in the swimlane to be toggled.

An example where the checkbox display on swimlane is toggling the display in the swimlane.

Some features in Skedulo (configurable in the admin settings) require a resource to provide a reason for an action. For example, why did a resource decline a job allocation?

Job-related messages (reasons) can be viewed in the job’s details via the Allocated Resources panel.

The Skedulo mobile app features that use this option are Decline Job and Cancel Job.

Team Leader

The team leader feature allows one of your allocated resources to process jobs (from their mobile device) on behalf of all of the other allocated resources. This relieves the other resources from the responsibility of updating the job status, allowing them to concentrate on other tasks.

In the allocated resources panel, you will find a Team leader dropdown list above the Add more resources button. The dropdown list is populated with the names from the allocated resources panel. Only one of these allocated resources can be set as the team leader for the selected job.

When a team leader is selected, a “TL” label appears next to their name. To reset (remove) this nomination, select None from the list.

Now, when the team leader changes the job status on their mobile device (to In Progress or Complete), the job status is updated for all the other allocated resources too.

Display Working Hours in the Swimlanes

If you only want to display certain working hours in the timeline and hide those hours and days where you do not have any work to schedule (like weekends for instance), you can configure the swimlane settings to “Only show working hours.”
