Reading the worksheet on the tablet

How technicians can see if jobs are approved to work on or have been modified (this guide assumes the tablet is assigned to a single technician)


Approved vs Unapproved Jobs

Approved jobs will have black text and the technician can use all functions on the job line (i.e. job timer, modify job completion, take notes & photos, etc.). Unapproved jobs which are being estimated by the service writer or jobs assigned to another technician will appear grey and all functions will be disabled.



Modified Jobs

Jobs that have been modified since the technician opened the worksheet on the tablet, either on the AutoVitals TVP (job approval changed, technician assignment changed) or in the POS software will be shown highlighted. The tech taps on the highlighted job to confirm they are aware of the change and the highlighting is removed.

In this example the “Lube Oil and Filter” job has been modified from an unapproved job to an approved job:


After the tech taps on the job line on their tablet to confirm they have seen the modified job, the highlighting is removed:

Declined or Deleted Jobs

When a job is marked as declined or deleted from the repair order in the POS software, the modified job is highlighted and “JOB DELETED” is shown

Like any modified job, tapping on the job line will remove the highlighting. The job will still be shown to the technician as a deleted job and like an unapproved job it appears grey and all job functions are disabled.
