REPORTING - WORKSHOP DASHBOARD


Blackpurl's Workshop Dashboard enables your Dealership to offer exceptionally high levels of customer service as from one screen you can easily see how all of the Service Jobs are progressing at any time from any device,


For example - you will be able to see from the Workshop Dashboard when jobs are running over / what Service Jobs your technicians are currently working on / how much allocated time is left etc.  This will mean that you are always in the know with what is happening with your Service Jobs so that you can also keep your customers up to date.


For a Service Job to appear on the Workshop Dashboard, the requirements are that:

  • it must be an open Service Job (not in completed or invoiced status) and the Service Job must have a scheduled appointment tied to it which starts on or before today's date
OR
  • the Service Job contains hours logged entries

A.       Each tile represents one Service Job and these are all the Service Jobs that are currently in your Blackpurl that meet

your filter requirements (B. and C.)

The default filters for the Workshop Dashboard are All Job Types (B.) and All Open Jobs (C.)

The green shaded tiles indicate that these Service Jobs have a technician currently job clocked onto them
These tiles will always be shown first in the Workshop Dashboard so at a glance you can see what Service Jobs your technicians are currently working on
