The app needed to be easy to use, since a variety of users would access it. We simplified the top navigation and use the search as the primary vehicle to navigate through thousands of open jobs.
One of the primary uses is creating work orders and long lists of tasks associated with them. These tasks are viewed and acted upon in the field on the iPad.
Some employees spend almost their entire day on certain screens and we wanted to make their life easier. One example is the screen lock for the schedulers. Clicking on the lock will prevent the screen from scrolling so they doesn’t lose their place in a long list of open work orders.
