I will like the Dispatch Console to refresh the Gantt and Show the Actual Start Time and End Time of WO. This will help me plan the Rest of the day for the Technician. It will also allow me to improve productivity of the Technicians.
If a WO took more than scheduled time, it should reflect in Gantt and Dispatcher can reassign some of his later WO to another technician.
Similarly if WO took less time than scheduled then Dispatcher should be able to see the white space in Gantt and adjust schedule of WO and assign new WO to Technician.
Is there a way to achieve this? We are ussing 19.1 version.
A critical function of SMAX is providing visibility in real time of technician productivity and their ability to perform additional activities. Accurate work times (actual) and alignment of GANNT timeline against current work order provides on the day scheduler/jeopardy management officer instant visibility of both schedule risk and opportunity (idle/white space).
Please make this a priority, appointment driven clients need it!!
I 100% agree, it is very misleading to look at the Gaant because it doesn't reflect the actual time spent by the engineer. You'd have to look in every event to identify actual time used rather than original time the event was planned/scheduled for. Same is true of the FSA iPad app, the event window stays fixed and isn't dynamic to match the actual time spent on the associated event and/or WO.
Deepak, can you post this as an idea here: https://community.servicemax.com/t5/Work-Planning-Scheduling-Ideas/idb-p/Work_Planning_and_Schedulin...
I'll link it to this thread so everyone who comes here can also vote on the idea, it's a great idea and one that other customers can vote on!
