Work Requests

Work Requests are online forms hosted by Jobber that allow your clients to request work to be done. These forms can be put on your website, social media pages, or clients can use the form by logging into Client Hub

 

How to get started

First you will need to turn on Requests in your account. To do this go to the Gear in the top right > Settings > Work Requests. On this page you can toggle Requests on.

On the same page, you can copy the URL link for the request form.

Add Work Request Form to your Website

To add the work request to your website, copy the URL. You can then add this to your website as a link or a button. Each website builder has it's own tools for adding buttons. 

 

Add Work Request Form to your Facebook page

When you create a FaceBook business page (facebook.com/pages/create) you will have the option of “Adding a Button” to your page.

We recommend you use the text of “Book Services”.

After you select Book Services, you can add the URL. This will be the work request URL. 

 

Client Hub

The work request form is already built into Client Hub. If your client logs into Client Hub they can click on Work Requests and fill out a new request here. 

 

How Clients Submit a Work Request

Once the form is set up, your clients can click on the work request button now on your social media page, website, or in Client Hub. They can then fill out a form to request work.

Your company name and logo in the Branding section of your account will show on the form in the top left. Your company email, website, and address from company branding, will show in a footer below the form. 

On the form, name, email and description are required fields clients must fill out. The address that is submitted will be created as a property under the client.

After a client has submitted a work request, the client will be emailed a copy of their request. 

All Admin users on the account will also be emailed a copy of the work request.

Viewing Work Requests in Jobber

Once a work request has been sent, you will be able to view it in your Jobber account. 

Pending work requests will show on your dashboard.

To view the pending requests, click on them in the Dashboard, or click 'Requests' from the main left menu.

You can see all your work requests ordered by date. To view the details of a request, click on it. 

You can also view a client's request on their profile. To do this go to People, search for the client and click on their profile. The requests will show in the Requests tab in the Client Overview.

When a work request is first created it will go into Pending. You can mark a work request as Complete when you have followed up with the client or taken action on it. To mark a work request as complete, click the request, then click Mark Complete.

To delete a work request, click the request, then click Delete

 

Converting a Work Request into a Quote or Job

Click into any of your Work Requests from the list and you will see a "Convert to" dropdown that allows you to select Quote or Job.

After you select quote or job, you will now see a "Work Request Reference" view on the right of your screen. This will include all relevant details that you client submitted with their work request and can be used as reference as you build the quote or job.

After the quote or job has been saved, the original Work request will  be marked as "Complete" and you will notice there is a reference to the quote and/or job on the Work request.

What if the client submits a work request and is already in your Jobber account?

Jobber will match up clients based on the email address. If the email address used on the form is the same as an email address already on a client in your account, then the work request will be linked to the existing client. A duplicate profile will not be made.
