How Jobs Appear in the Specialist App

Jobs created in the Command Center are assigned to specific specialists. All jobs assigned for the current date appear in the assigned specialist’s Specialist App Job List.


  • New jobs for the current date are appearing several minutes after they are assigned.

  • The specialist has to manually refresh the Specialist App by dragging down and releasing on the Job List in order to see new jobs or job changes.

Typical Causes

  • The mobile phone has a poor internet connection or has temporarily lost internet.

  • The mobile phone is in a data saver/ low data mode.
