Maintenance and IT Service Provider Support

It is always best to keep the list short at first, as this will make it less confusing for requesters. You can always activate more service crafts at a later time. Also, if you are using MaintenanceDirect, make sure that you activate the same crafts in MaintenanceDirect. If a craft has been activated in FSDirect and has not been activated in MaintenanceDirect, the work order will not have a craft assignment when it is created.

How to Set Up Service Provider Support

After you have activated Maintenance and IT Service crafts you can add routing rules to automatically send notifications of specific service requests to certain service providers. For example, a task notification for an Event Setup request at the High School could be sent directly to the head custodian at that location.

You cannot assign one craft at the same Location to two different people. The system will not know who to send the notification to. Please contact the Client Services Team if you have a unique situation so that we can offer recommendations.
