Using the Map for Job Dispatch

Using the map for job dispatch

The Tradify map has been designed primarily for job dispatch. It’s main purpose is to give you real-time visibility of your field staff and jobs at their current location.

Viewing field staff on the map

Field staff using the Tradify mobile app can be tracked and displayed on the map. All staff members are listed on the left hand side of the map, just below the search box. Staff who have enabled location tracking in Tradify mobile app, and who are currently logged, in are marked as Online. Staff who have disabled location tracking, or who are not logged in to Tradify mobile app, are marked as Offline​.

If you want to see staff on the map, click on the staff member in the staff list. You’ll see the map zoom into where the staff member is located and an information window popup above the staff member’s map icon. If you want to see the staff member’s job schedule for today, click on View appointments for this Staff Member.

Searching for staff, jobs and addresses

If you want to find a staff member, job or street address on the map, use the map search box in the top left hand corner of the map. The map search box works by typing part or all of a staff member’s name, a job number, a customer name or a street address. As you type you’ll see matching results appear in a dropdown list under the search box. When you see what you’re looking for in the dropdown list, click on it to zoom to the location of the item on the map.

When searching for a street address you can enter a job for the address by clicking on New Job at this address in the information popup window. You can find out more about entering a job on the map at an address here.

Map icons

Tradify uses different icons to show the location of each staff member, jobs and street addresses on the map. The job icons are colour coded to provide an instant view about the progress of each job. These can be changed in the Settings > Job settings menu. When using the map, make use of map key in the top right hand corner of the map. This tool can be shown or hidden depending on your individual requirements.

Using satellite imagery to get a clearer perspective/

Sometimes it can be helpful to see a job site from a birds eye view to get a clearer perspective of the job site and any challenges it may present. The Tradify map allows you to do this by simply clicking on Satellite in the top right hand corner of the map.

Sometimes it can be helpful to see a job site at street level. The Tradify map allows you to do this by simply dragging the Pegman in the top left hand corner of the map, to the location on the map you want to get a close look at.
