Google® Maps  &  Apple® Maps

You can now open Google maps, or Apple maps when using iOS devices, from many different places within the client app and the Web app. You are one click away from viewing the relevant map or launching your mobile navigation app!

Look for the ‘Map’ links in the Preview tab of Tickets, Accounts, the Appointment and Task windows, and the quick preview of Accounts, Contacts and Tickets.

When using the Web portal look for the ‘Map’ and ‘Nav.’ links.

  • Email messages received from employees without a ticket number in the subject line, will create a new ticket under your Business Account record (you can later simply switch the accounts for the ticket).
  • Email messages from employees that arrive to the Email Connector and are converted into a new Ticket, can now also contain who this new Ticket will be assigned to!
    Simply add the employee email address to assign it to prefixed by @.

    For example, a message with the following subject line:
