Reschedule Jobs from the Dispatch Board

Rescheduling jobs because of weather or other reasons, can be stressful and time-consuming. Fortunately, there are a few simple ways to reschedule Jobs in Service Autopilot. You can also easily reassign jobs to different Resources at the same time. The steps below will explain how to do it. 

Remember that recurring schedules (such as Weekly - Monday) will auto-adjust whenever a job instance is skipped or rescheduled. That means that even if one Job is rescheduled, the others will remain on the selected schedule. If you need to update all future rounds, you will need to update the Master Schedule on the Master Job record.
