At the top of the page, under the Navigation Bar, you will see the filter selection:
Click on any filter to display the filter criteria and apply the filter. Under the filters, you have the view selection:
Here, you can access different views you've already created or create new views. To the immediate right of the View dropdown menu is a Refresh button. To the right of the Refresh button is the date selection. If you click in the date selection field, it will open a date picker:
After you select your date(s), click Close to apply the date(s) and close the dialog.
Continuing over to the right, you have the Print button and the More dropdown list:
The Print button is where you print Route Sheets for dispatched jobs. The More dropdown list is where you Assign Teams, Send Text Messages, Export the Dispatch Board, Customize Sort Order, Show Tabs, Show Legend, and access the Job Costing and Visits Reports. Show Legend displays what each color and icon means on the Dispatch Board.
Under the view selection and job total is the Actions menu:
Many different actions can be taken, such as changing a job's status, routing, or communicating with Clients. To the right of the Actions dropdown list is a quick date selector. Choosing a different date will automatically refresh the page. Continuing to the right, you have the Edit Jobs button:
This allows you to reassign or reschedule one or more jobs. The Show Map button will display the Map so you can see jobs in physical relation to one another. Show Stats will show B. Hrs, job count, and total amount by resource. On the far right is the column selection for the Dispatch Board.
There are additional functions on the grid of the Dispatch Board itself. You can click any status icon to display a dialog to make quick changes:
