The "Quick-start" series of articles enables you to go from setting up resources to dispatching your first job in a few short steps.
To begin, you need to have run the onboarding wizard to install the Skedulo web app. If you haven't done that yet, you can check out the onboarding wizard article.

Dispatch a Job (2 min 30)
Once you've set up a job, you can dispatch it immediately to a resource by clicking on the relevant "Dispatch" button (do this from the allocated resources panel, in the job details view).
Where you have multiple resources allocated to one job, notify them all in one go using the "Dispatch All" button (the arrow icon at the top of the panel).
Figure 1. A job, allocated to two resources (in job details view), ready to be dispatched.
As the scheduler, you will receive a notification that the dispatch message was sent, and your mobile worker will get a notification message on their mobile device. The job status will change from "Pending Dispatch" to "Dispatched."
Once notified, your resources can either accept or reject the job. Once accepted, the job status will change from "Dispatched" to "Ready".
If you have created a recurring schedule, the first job in the schedule is displayed ready to be dispatched. Allocate your resources as required (you will have the option of whether you wish to apply this resource to all recurring jobs or just this one).
Congratulations! Now you've got Skedulo up and running, why not check out some of our more detailed articles on how to make the most of your Skedulo web app.
