The ‘Check In’ button functions differently depending on the required check in for the work order. If no specific check in is set, then a standard PPW check in is required.
The PPW check in is standard if no check in option is set for the work order. To check in, tap the ‘Check In’ button. You may see a GPS Acquiring Location status indicator. If you receive an error checking in, verify that you have location services enabled for your device. Refer to the Troubleshooting section for more information.
Checking in with an ABC# or as a visitor is supported for all orders with an AGS check in requirement; however, MCS does not allow the visitor check in.
1. To check in with your ABC#, tap the ‘Add Crew Leader’ option. Specify your ABC# and then tap 'Search'. If the ABC# is found, information is displayed under the saved workers. If you are adding additional ABC#’s, you must enter the PIN #.
2. To add crew members that have ABC#s, tap the ‘Add Worker’ option. Specify the ABC# and then tap ‘Search’. Tap the search result if it is found. You can also search by first and last name.
Note: The search function looks for only workers in the same company as the crew leader. If the worker you search for is signed up under their own company or a different company, the worker cannot be found.
3. You can also check in visitors to the work order. A visitor is any worker who does not have an ABC#. Specify the first name, last name, vendor (company name), and reason for being at the property, and then tap ‘Add Visitor’.
