How to Create A New Task Type?

A lot of our customers had asked us if they can add new task types? Good News! Now you can create new task types according to your business requirements while using RepairDesk

This will help you in defining different sorts of repair jobs and work orders. So if it is a field visit or just a diagnosis check, you can mention it on a repair ticket. 

Creating new task types is extremely easy. Just:

1. Go to View all Task Types under Module Configuration section of Settings.

2. On View all Task Types screen you can view default task types. 

Default Task Types in RepairDesk are:

In-Store - In-store repair job. 
On-Site - Technician visits customer for repair.
Pick Up - Collect device from customer.
Drop Off - Return device to customer after repair.
Out Of Warranty - This service is out of warranty.
In Warranty - Repair job taking place within warranty period.

To add another task type click on Add Task Type button.  

3. Enter name of task type and click on Create to add this new task type. 

4. Now while creating a ticket, on Details page you can select the newly added task type.
