Tuesday Tool Tip – Remove Cancelled Calls from Calendar

Do Not Display Cancelled Calls

Remove Cancelled Calls from Calendar

Currently when a service call is cancelled it turns purple and remains on the calendar.  While it is good to know that a call was previously booked but then subsequently cancelled, it is also frustrating that it remains on the calendar, preventing another service call from being scheduled in that time slot.

Good news – now there is a setting that will remove the service call from the calendar and free open the time slot to make another appointment.

The setting can be found here:

  • From the Command Center, click on Settings
  • Go to the Dispatching section
  • Click on General Settings
  • Go to the first section – “Calendar Display Options”
  • The setting is called – “Display Cancelled Calls”

If the value of the setting is “Yes”, then the software will behave like it does today.  The service call will be cancelled and remain on the calendar.

If the value of the setting is “No”, then the software will still cancel the call, but it will not be displayed on the calendar.  A new service call can now be scheduled in that time slot.

Please note that regardless of the setting, the service call will be displayed in the “Past Service Calls” table in the customer’s record.
