*New* Add photos to timesheets with the touch of a button

We love releasing new features, especially ones that have been a long time coming. But even when we have a feature we can’t wait to get out, it’s important to us that we vet it fully to make sure the feature we release is the one we were inspired to create. Part of that vetting process is working with beta testers. These (much appreciated) guinea pigs give us a better idea of what we’re doing right, what needs to change, and whether or not we’re on the path to rolling out a hit. [caption id="attachment_27556" align="alignright" width="300"] 5 ways visual record-keeping increases productivity, employee empowerment, and remote management[/caption] Well, ladies and gentlemen, we’re finally there! And the feature we’re making available to all of you is the ability to add photos to timesheets! That’s an unlimited number of photos. We’re super excited to be bringing this feature to you — a No. 1 customer request. You may remember a blog we wrote back in December, laying out this feature and how we thought companies could benefit from it. At that point, we were looking for beta testers to see if the solution we’d built out was effective. And it was! We received a lot of positive feedback from our beta testers — feedback we’re excited to share with you today! Wondering if you should give this new feature a try? Check out these testimonials, straight from the horse’s mouth.  

Here’s what our beta testers said about attaching photos to timesheets

“[This feature] helps make the crews accountable, and there is proof instead of just taking their word for it. It helps me know exactly what’s missing or what work is left to do, instead of asking the crew a million questions to be able to schedule properly. It also helps in billing out repairs. I can attach a picture to the invoice, proving why we charged them for this repair and what [needs to be] fixed. The pictures can also be used for marketing our skills to gain future business.”

— Troy, B&B Tile

“We are [attaching] pics of furnaces’ model and serial [numbers], so we can get them in our database. This makes it easy for us to order parts for our customers’ units and know what types of units we are going to work on when they need service. We also are adding pictures of jobs, which helps me see what my crews’ jobs look like without having to visit them. This saves me a lot of time. Most common for a couple pics per job.”

— Garrett, Universal Heating, Cooling & Refrigeration
