Dispatcher Viewer


The record is used in conjunction with the Dispatcher Id on the Dispatch Board’s Filter Calls tab. By entering a Dispatcher Id on this range, only those work orders with the corresponding Dispatcher Id will be displayed on the Dispatch Board. This feature is intended to enable dispatchers to track only ‘their’ work orders.

Tip: If technicians are shared between dispatchers, you will not be able to see these other dispatches when filtering on the Dispatcher Id on the Dispatch Board. To view all dispatches for your technicians, blank the Dispatcher Id in the Dispatch Board’s Filter Calls tab.


Referenced in the Client Site and Work Order records, and on the Filter Calls tab of the Dispatch Board. It may also be used for reporting purposes. If the Dispatcher Id was not set in the Client Site record when a Work Order was created, it will not automatically be included in these existing Work Orders. Contact your support representative for details.

A Dispatcher record may be associated with an individual (by completing the Employee Id). Alternately, it may designate a position – for example, the dispatcher for A-1 Supermarkets and Acme Department stores.
