What the Specialist App Is

The Specialist App of the Quickride Jobs platform is where specialists manage and complete jobs for customers.

Job List Screen

The Job List screen is the default screen when logging in to the Specialist App. It show’s jobs that the specialist has assigned for the current date. The jobs are organized chronologically by the job start time, with the first job of the day at the top, the next job below that, and so on.

The job listings have the following information and controls, from top to bottom and left to right:

  4. Job Start Time: The time the job is scheduled to start.

  5. Job Status: The job status.

  6. Navigate Back to Station Button: Launches the Navigation screen and gives the driver a map and directions back to the station (or the option to get directions back to one of the locations defined in Addresses).

Contacting a Customer

If the specialist needs to, they can call the customer directly. To do so, the specialist taps the phone icon. The options Phone and Text appear. Selecting one will open either the phone dialer or the text messages app with the customer’s phone number already inputted. From there, the specialist can make a call or send a text/ SMS message.

When the specialist taps Go on the job listing or the Navigate Back to Station button, the Navigation screen launches. The Navigation screen is powered by MapBox, a third-party provider. It gives the specialist a suggested best driving route and turn-by-turn audio and visual directions.
