Scheduled Tickets

The Scheduled tickets feature allows teams to ensure the optimal performance and operation of building equipment by automating ticket creation, basically creating a regular schedule for preventative maintenance on critical pieces of equipment.

Scheduled Tickets may need to be enabled in your WillowTwin™ platform, for more information about enabling this feature, please speak to your Customer Success Manager


Within the main Tickets area of WillowTwin™ platform that have this feature enabled, users may see three buttons just below the main menu bar at the top of the screen, Standard Tickets, Scheduled Tickets and Schedules; the Schedules area is visible only to users with Site or Portfolio admin privileges. For more information on creating schedules, please see the admin article Creating Ticket Schedules.

    • From here, users can track the status and progress of all open tickets
      • While open tickets will typically be updated by users in the field via the mobile app, users can edit and update ticket details from here as well

Closing Scheduled Tickets

When a user of the mobile app resolves a ticket, this will transition the ticket status to Resolved and move the ticket to the list under the Resolved tab. From here users who are typically managers or supervisors can review the tickets, including the Cause, Solution and any Comments that may have been entered.

After review, the user can manually change the status of the ticket to Closed unless they determine more work may be required, in which case they could select the most appropriate status from the list to re-assign the ticket.
