An activity can be used to book unscheduled actions. Activities are scheduled like jobs but are not customer related. Examples include admin work, meal breaks, an oil change for a car, childcare visits, or dental appointments.
Activities can be created by a scheduler (via the web app) or a resource (via the mobile app).
Tip! If you do not see the option to create an activity, chances are the required admin setting is not enabled. Refer to Admin Settings: Mobile.

Creating an Activity on Skedulo
To create an activity, tap on the large white "plus" icon in the top-right corner of the app. A pop-up menu will open with the option to create a new "Activity." Tapping activity opens the "Create activity" view. Here, you can add details about the activity being submitted.
These details include:
- Start date.
- Duration (minutes).
Once completed, tap on the checkmark (or tick) button to save the activity. The activity will then be shown on the agenda and calendar views for the day set in the start date field.
