    Trying to get an idea

    Is there anyway that we can build an app that will interface with workorders specifically assigned to a user?  


    1. We are a carpet cleaning that goes to the homes of our clients to perform service.
    2. trying to go paperless
    3. Each field technician is listed as a user, but not all of them have login access (not needed and can be too much if they all do).  
    4. We already carry mobile devices to pull up QBO, run credit cards, and utilize map navigation.
    5. Can be helpful in being fluid for a dynamical operation.
    We can easily get someone to build an app for this, but just want to get some insight in the community about going down this route first.  Any advice will be greatly helpful.  Thanks.

    Hi InstaDry,

    This is possible - Work orders are stored in the Activity Table in Method (work order line items can be found in the ActivityJobItems Table).  You could utilze the API to query the Activty Table to retrieve only those work orders assigned to a specific user for a specific date range.  From there, your app can maipulate the data as required and push any updates back into Method.

    Please post up any additional questions you may have on getting started with this integration.
