Lesson 7 – Material Usage

The Material Usage page is where you can update your master material list. You’ll be able to select from these options while you’re in the field, on the mobile app. 

 

Your GorillaDesk account will already come pre-populated with a robust list of standard pest control materials. However, you will also have the ability to add, remove, and edit selections; allowing you to fully customize the options that will be available when adding materials to a job.

You can access and customize your material usage by navigating to Settings>Addons>Material Usage.

Activating this Add-on allows for tracking of chemicals and materials used for each job.

You’ll have access to completely customize 6 master lists for tracking and recording purposes on each job.

  1. Materials & EPA#
  2. Units
  3. Target Pests
  4. Locations
  5. Methods of Treatment
  6. Area

Setting up your customizable master lists:

When materials are recorded for a job, they will show as a separate table on your invoice work orders to meet state requirements.
