Mobile Install Users


If you are using Mobile Install, Service Orders will automatically update with the changes made in the Mobile Install interface. However, if you already have SI open when the changes are made in Mobile Install, you will need to click the [Update From] button in the Mobile Install section of the ribbon of the Service Order Explorer to bring down the changes:

This will update the Service Order with information added within the Mobile Install web interface. You will get a confirmation once updated:

You can now further edit the Service Order within SI 2016 if needed.


Site Items


If Site Items were added to the Service Order in the Mobile Install interface, click the Site Items tab in the Edit Service Order form:




The Site Items will be displayed:




Select each Item that you want to edit and click the [Add to Service Order] button:




This will open the Add Product form. This form may be pre-filtered to Items in your Catalog based on the fields you entered for the Site Items.




You can clear the filter if needed to find any product in your SI 2016 Catalog:
