Best Practices & Tips

-Are you finding the alert is not reporting as you'd expect? The premise is that the tech goes onsite, determines part(s) needed, then marks the call as incomplete for parts. A new call is created, flagged as a reschedule, and then the tech would put the call on hold for parts. Alert will only consider calls marked as reschedules.
