How Tikkit works
Tikkit works with several different types of data. It's helpful to understand what these are:
- Requests. Requests go by many names, including jobs, work orders, tickets, etc. Whatever you call them, requests are a piece of work that you create, assign, update, and track to completion. Requests can have a type, such as plumbing, lighting, HVAC, etc.
- Locations. Requests are attached to specific locations, as in: "Window broken at 123 Main St." Most often a location will be a building, but it doesn't have to be. It could be a parking lot, storage shed, swimming pool, whatever.
- Staff. Staff members are the people working for your organization who have access to Tikkit and have requests assigned to them.
- Occupants. Occupants are people who use your buildings, but don't work for your organization. They could be homeowners, officeworkers, fire fighters, etc. They often need to be able to report and track requests.
