The Send Job Request form asks you to fill in all the details for a job so that your cleaner knows exactly what you need them to do. The Send Job Request form is available from your Calendar, Contacts, Properties, and Checklist Library pages.
If you sent a job request from your Calendar bookings or your Properties, you will see the Property field already populated with the property you chose. If you sent a job request from your Contacts, you will see the Service Provider populated. If you sent a job request from your Checklist Library, you will see your Task/Checklist field populated.
Fill out the Job Request
To send a job, only four fields are required:
- Service Provider
You can also decide to send a Job Type/Title, an Offered Price (the price you’re offering the service provider to perform the job), and a Description. These fields are optional, but both Job Type and Offered Price can help your service provider make a prompt decision to accept your job.
Select an option from the drop-down menu, and add a title to the job if you choose. The title can help you remember any specific details about this job.
Choose the property you’d like to be serviced with this job, if it isn’t already selected.
If you’ve already filled out the Property Details for the property you’ve selected, this field will automatically populate. If you haven’t yet filled out the Property Details for this property, or would like to add extra instructions for this job, you can modify Properly Details in this tab by selecting the small pen icon in the lower right-hand corner.
You can select a checklist, if you haven’t already, from either the Property Checklists for this property, or the Checklist Library. You can also Add Extra Task if you’d like your cleaner to take on an extra task for this job, such as picking up supplies or leaving a note for the guest.
Be sure to double-check that the time listed for your job is correct! If you prefer your cleaner to work in a fixed window of time, select “Fixed Time.” This will tell the cleaner that they must arrive by the time you specify and finish in the time you’ve allotted.
If you have some flexibility in your schedule, you can select “Flexible Time.” This will allow you to give your cleaner a time range in which they can perform the job – for example, this one-hour job can be completed anytime between 6 am and 1 pm.
Select the service provider you’d like to perform the job. You can select multiple service providers if you prefer. If you do, each of the service providers you send the job to will receive a job request. When one of them accepts the job, the other service providers will receive a notification that the job is no longer available.
While providing a price is not required, service providers are much more likely to accept your job request if you specify a price.
A description of the job isn’t typically necessary, but it can be a convenient way to send your cleaner additional details about the job – for example, here we’ve let Maria know this is an early check-in, so there’s no flexibility about the job end time.
When you’ve completed all necessary fields, the button “Send Job Request” will light up orange. You can now send your job.
