How to Access the Task Profile in LOU Schedule - LOU® - Powered by Evosus

What’s one of the most important things service techs need access to on the go? Their jobs, of course! In LOU, we call those jobs Schedule Task and LOU Schedule puts the Task details right there, in front of service techs, so they can see all the good stuff right when they need to!

WAIT! Make sure you have already activate LOU Schedule on your Mobile Device.

Open your LOU Schedule mobile app on your mobile device.

Enter your PIN. This will take you to the Main screen. The view will default to the Task tab and Today.

This page will show you all your Tasks on the Schedule for Today and a Summary of totals for the Day.

Task Profile

To enter a Task, tap one of the Tasks.

You will land on the Task Profile where you can Check In on the Task which starts the clock on the right. The estimated time for the Task is below the clock. You can quickly send the On My Way, Arrived, and Departed Messages to the Customer. The Customer Name and Address are there for reference. You can use the View Account button to view important information on the Customer’s Account.

Check In/Check Out

When you tap the Check In button, the clock starts on the Task. You can Pause the Clock any time, if you need to stop tracking time for any reason.

REMEMBER! You should Check In according to your company’s policy. LOU does not decide if you Check In when you’re on your way or after you’ve arrived. You should follow your company’s policies or guidelines.

Once you’ve checked in, if you realize you made a mistake and want to undo the Check In, you can click Cancel Check In in the bottom right.

Once you’ve completed the Task, you can click the Check Out button. You will receive a Confirmation message asking if you’re ready to check out of the Task.


When you tap Yes, you will be asked to mark the Task as Complete. If you are not ready to mark the Task as complete, you will not be allowed to check out. Finish entering data and tap the Check Out button again to complete the Task and check out.

Once you’ve checked out, the Check In/Check Out button will change to say New Check In. The clock will show complete and have the actual time taken to complete the Task. If you need to Check In for a second time on this Task, you can click the New Check In button.


View Account

When you click View Account, you land on this page where you can access the Customer’s Site Profile(s), Checklist History of previously completed Checklists for this Order/Task, Interviews completed on the Order, and Equipment on the Customer Profile.

REMEMBER! In order to help you sync and get on your way, LOU performs some sync activities in the background after you initiate a Sync. This means that immediately after tapping Sync, you may not be able to see the View Account button for a Customer when in a Task Profile. Don’t worry! This will only take a minute or two and that View Account will button return, allowing you to access the Account data.

The pin on the Task will reflect the status of the Task. You can see in the image above, the pin is orange and has a pause symbol on it, indicating the Task has been checked in and paused. If the Task had not been checked in, it would be a blue pin indicating it’s Pending. If the Task was checked in and active, the pin would be green. If the Task is complete, the pin will be gray.


You can quickly send the pre-configured On My Way, Arrived, and Departed Messages to your Customer. Tap the Message you want to send.

You will get a Confirmation Box asking you to confirm you want to send the Message. Click Yes and the Message will be sent according to your Customer’s Electronic Messaging Preferences.

LOU Schedule will autosave the Notes for you! You can go back into the Notes Workflow any time while working on a Task. You can add to, or change, Notes as necessary.
