Use the map to search for your drivers, technicians, work orders, and tickets in a visual way. 

For example, if a technician or driver completes a work order or ticket, they can use the map to locate another open work order or ticket in the immediate area. As a counter worker, you can use the map to see where your drivers or technicians currently are or to track their progress. 

The map functionality uses Google maps. If you move more than 500 meters, Texada Mobile updates your location as long as the location service is active on your mobile device.

    Note: By default, work orders with the Closed status are not displayed because the map would display your entire work order history, resulting in slow load times and difficulty visually locating the work order you need
  2. Optional: Use the Filter by Status, Priority drop-down to filter the information displayed on the map by work order status or priority. For example, if you need to see if a technician has completed a specific work order, you can filter the orders to only display those with the Complete status.
  3. Optional: Type a search term in the Search field, such as the work order number or technician name to search for a specific work order
    The work orders on the map are narrowed to reflect your search terms
