Hand Over/Take it

The Hand Over/Take it function allows technicians to “hand over” assignments that they have accepted to another technician, and for technicians to “take” or accept the assignments that have been handed over to them by other technicians.

The “handover/take it” functionality is available from the function menu in the Activities screen. When a technician selects the handover option, they can then select and assign the activity to another technician.



The following permissions must be applied to a user group in order to the Handover/Take it functionality to be available for activities and service assignments:
