Put Your Missions on autopilot with Mission Availability Settings

January 23, 2019

Add recurring schedules and key deadlines to your Missions to align with your business goals

If you’ve ever set a recurring calendar event as a reminder to log-in to GoSpotCheck at a certain time each day to start or stop a Mission, we’ve got some great news! GoSpotCheck’s brand new Mission Availability settings make it easy to create recurring windows of time when a Mission should display as “Available” within the mobile app, automatically hiding and showing Missions according to the availability schedule you’ve set. It also provides your team with visibility into when a Mission is due, helping them to prioritize the initiatives you care about most.

How It Works

  • Select from Daily, Weekly (and coming soon, Monthly) windows of time when you’d like to allow Mission Responses to be submitted.
  • When the current date/time matches the schedule you’ve set, the Mission appears as “Available” for Mobile App users to complete, with an indicator that displays the time when the Mission is due.
  • As soon as the availability window passes, the Mission is greyed out and marked as “Upcoming” until it's next scheduled availability. 

How It Can Help You

These settings open up a world of possibilities for our customers to use GoSpotCheck in new ways. Try:

  • Creating a daily “Store Open Checklist” Mission that’s available 7 days a week, but only from 5:30am-7:00am
  • Deploying a Mission to monitor weekly product promotions, available each week, only on Sundays or Wednesdays (or whenever your ad change occurs)
  • Creating a “Manager Store Walk” Mission that’s available to your management team each weekday from 1:45pm-2:30pm

Why It Matters

Mission Availability places your team's focus on your priorities by automatically filtering out Missions that are not immediately actionable. It also helps prioritize work based on deadlines--empowering companies to focus the energy of their mobile workforce on the most critical activities first. Last, Mission Availability helps improve the integrity of the data you are collecting by ensuring date and time-based compliance.

Here's Your Time Back: Overall, the ability to set up recurring daily, weekly, and monthly Missions with this level of granularity will dramatically increase productivity and save time previously spent calendaring, copying or aggregating data across Missions. 

We’re so excited to see what you do with Mission Availability - Now go ahead and delete that recurring “Stop GSC Mission” Calendar invite!
