    Your email is probably fine, since that's set up when you signed up for the account. The customer record might be missing an email address. Just go to back to your Customers view and add an email address for the customer. Hope this helps!

    I may have missed it, but is there somewhere to set up mowing routes?

    Something I could click to see what is scheduled for a certain day of the week?

    Thanks for your question.

    You can check your scheduled activities by day, week or month.
    Here are the preview links to each view, if you don’t have an account with us.

    https://www.yardbook.com/activities?calendar_mode=by_day
    https://www.yardbook.com/activities?calendar_mode=by_week
    https://www.yardbook.com/activities?calendar_mode=by_month

    There are also print links in the daily and weekly views so that you can print out a detailed schedule from a PDF file.

    As for setup/optimizing mowing routes, it is something we plan to add to Yardbook in the future.

    Hope this helps!

    Looks like a well developed software. I will be downloading it and will play with it a little. Good to see some people from my neck of the woods on here. I was in San Mateo today actually.
    Cheers

    Hey SRT8, I'm glad you like the software so far. Let us know if you have any questions/feedback about Yardbook. And it's very nice meeting someone from the Bay Area!

    Yea i'll let you know. I'll spread the word with some of my friends in the industry.

    We have properties right off the Hillsdale exit.

    I noticed the "Equipment" section and have a question.

    The example shown seems more or less to be a way to track where your equipment is at any given time and who is using it.

    As I'm solo, that is of no use to me, but what WOULD be nice is to be able to list my equipment and include important info for each, such as:
    - Part numbers for things like blades, filters, serial/model numbers (for use when calling in for parts availability)
    - Maintenance schedule/history
    - Date/location/price paid when purchased
    - Misc notes on performance

    Thanks SRT8, that would be awesome!

    We're actually very close to the hillsdale exit. Once you start using Yardbook, we can meet you in-person and show you some of the latest features we're working on.

    Hi OakNut,

    Yardbook already support most of these fields you've listed here.

    Once you are on the following page, just click into an equipment name link (blue).
    https://www.yardbook.com/equipments

    From there, you can schedule maintentance, add notes, add attachments, and update any details for the equipment.

    Hope this helps,

    Awesome. Thanks for the prompt reply.

    That would certainly be helpful when something needs a part replaced unexpectedly while out in the field. No need to go looking for specs/model/serial numbers - just look them up in the "notes" with your phone and give the dealer a call.
