When a task is created from Tookan Dashboard the local time zone from where the task is being created is considered.
Example: Let’s say a task is created in Singapore, the time zone considered is GMT +8hrs.
In Bulk Upload
In the case of bulk upload of tasks, the time zone of the admin account is taken into consideration while tasks are created.
Example: Let’s say an admin in the US(say A for convenience) has created a manager(say M) in India. When this manager(M) creates tasks using the bulk upload the timezone of Admin(A) and tasks are created in US TimeZone.
Using Tookan API
Tookan API accepts a request body parameter named “timezone” which is the Timezone difference with UTC in minutes. When a task is created with local time(say X), and timezone(+Y). Y minutes are added to X to make it UTC time.
How to get the Timezone difference with UTC in minutes?
Let’s say I am creating a task in India’s time which is five and half hours ahead of UTC time (+05:30), convert five and half hours into minutes i.e 330 minutes. Since India’s time is ahead of UTC time to convert it into UTC time 330 minutes has to be subtracted from it. So, timezone is -330.

Steps to Import an Agent:
Steps to Export An Agent:
Multiple agents can be added to a task. This can be done by mentioning the number of agents in the ‘assignment tab’ of new task window or manually multi-select agents.
This is used when you want to see only some of the details of Agents, for example, only name and id.
Steps to Filter:
Merchant is the seller or service provider on Tookan extensions. This add-on helps you onboard and manage merchants from the admin account. Once onboard, merchants can log in to their own dashboard from where they can manage their agents, tasks and other functionalities. The admin has full access to all of the details and activities of the merchant, including, but not limited to tasks and agents.
Go to Extensions > Activate Multi Merchant Extension
Go to Menu > Merchants > Click on Add Merchant > Submit
Access Control List (ACL)
ACL in Tookan helps you define roles with permissions as per your requirement. For a manager’s role, these permissions can be related to tasks, agents, customers, teams, and settings. So one can give permissions to his manager to add or delete a task/agent/customer/team depending on his requirement. Similarly in Agent ACL, one can give access to his agents to add/edit a task or edit his work schedule.
Admin can create a number of roles with a set of permissions in ACL. Further, while adding a manager/agent, he can simply assign a role to that particular manager/agent.
To define roles with permissions go to Menu > Settings > Access Control
Agent Schedule Permissions
Select a workflow
Tookan is a flexible solution that supports three types of workflows to best suit your business requirements.
Upon selecting a workflow, corresponding changes take place in both dashboard and agent mobile apps. It is recommended that you select appropriate workflow complimenting your business. You can change the workflow by going to Menu > Settings > Preferences.
This workflow is best suited for businesses that provide on-demand pickups or deliveries. For example:
This workflow is best suited for businesses that provide at-home/ office services. For example:
This workflow is best suited for businesses that manage on-street customer acquisition teams. For example:
Based on your business requirement, you can set the push notification which is sent to the agents, in one of the following ways:
(Request goes to one agent (nearest & available) first and if the timer runs out or if the agent declines the task, it goes to the second best option. You can set the timer in the workflows)
(Request is sent to all the available agents and whosoever accepts/ acknowledges the task first will receive it)
Batch wise auto assignment works in the form of push notification. After enabling this feature, the tasks are assigned automatically and the manager can focus on key focus areas of the business like marketing and sales.
This feature is available on the Workflow settings page, (Menu > Settings > Auto Allocation). Select Batch Wise for setting the Batch Configuration.
The details about each and every parameter for Batch configuration is below:
If Auto Assignment fails, then the Dashboard gets a notification and tasks shows the option to Retry Auto Assignment, and send a round of notifications back to the available agents. We also send an email to the account owner notifying about the event.
Some other miscellaneous features regarding the feature are as follows:
This new auto assign configuration allows for force assigning the tasks to your agents based on following two params:
The system searches for all the available agents within the radius limit around the task location. It sorts the agents based on the number of tasks assigned to the agent and distance from the task location (in 40-60 ratio respectively), filters out all those agents whose tasks’ count is greater than the maximum number of tasks for that day (for which the task is being scheduled). The agent on top of this list is assigned the task.
If the system is not able to find any person in the given radius limit, then it searches the nearest agent outside the radius limit and assigns the task to that agent, however still maintaining the maximum number of tasks limit for each agent.
The task will be left unassigned, only if no agent with lesser number of tasks is available.
This new auto assign configuration allows to assign task to the nearest available agent. You could define the maximum radius here.
Note: If you have enabled Auto Allocation in Account Setup, you can still choose to manually assign a task by deselecting Assign Automatically option in the Create Task pop-up. If your task is in unassigned category and says ‘unable to Auto Assign’, it means that the task request went to every available agent, but no one was available or accepted it. Now human intervention is required i.e. admin manually needs to assign the task to an agent.
First In First Out
An agent is now capable to perform another task while doing the first in one go with Pooling when using the Batch Wise auto allocation method. Currently, the pooling feature works for the tasks created on the dashboard or from API.
To Enabling Pooling:
Go to MENU > Settings > Auto Allocation > Select Batch Wise Allocation > Enable Pooling toggle.
NOTE: If ETA or SLA are defined 0, then that condition will not be taken for consideration in pooling.
A Mission consists of multiple tasks belonging to multiple workflows (Pickup & Delivery/ Appointments/ Field Workforce), spanning across multiple days and each task could be assigned to multiple agents.
Features of Missions
Let’s take the case of a construction project where there might be a requirement of multiple pick-up and delivery agents, laborers and engineers at the same time. If one has to create individual tasks for each one of them, this might turn into a very tedious job!
So, if a business has such a diverse need, then instead of creating multiple individual tasks it can create just one ‘Mission’.
Tookan offers yet another amazing feature that will simplify your task assignment process and help you categorize your fleet in a more geo- efficient way.
To enable geo-fencing go to Menu > Settings > Geo Fence. Geo fencing allows for categorizing your agents based on regions/zones. Draw your own area over the map and assign agent(s) to that region.
When creating a task, (if you have auto-assign active and you have also created at least one region), then a Geo Fence check box is visible, that allows for dispatching the task with the geo-fence-filter as ON. Tookan automatically detects which region(s) the task lies in, and filters the available agents for auto assignment who are authorized for those regions.
This feature solves the zoning, licensing issues that many service providers face when their agents are not authorized outside a defined zone. It also helps if you want to limit the tasks that are being sent to the agents’ limited zone wise.
Routing Optimization add-on allows you to efficiently optimize the routes, saving you both time and money.
Go to Menu > Extensions > Activate Route Optimization
This is an add-on feature which is charged separately on top of your current plan.
Using Routing Optimization is very easy. Below are the two ways to optimize your routes:
Complete Route Optimization flow:
Now add Fleet end location:
Adding ‘Fleet end location’ allows solving the use cases where you want to optimize route in such a way that your agent should return to a particular location after performing the tasks.
You can select from the list of attributes you would like to have in your Agent’s mobile app. Based on your selection, your agents will see the selected attributes in the task details page in their mobile apps.
Go to Menu > Settings > Agent App
Accept/Decline Task- Based on your business requirement you can provide your agent with decline a task option as well. If you don’t enable it by default agent has to acknowledge a task or you can choose none if you want nothing to appear.
Based on your business requirement you can enable marking Agents auto arrived when they are within a certain distance from the stop location.
Enable this configuration to optimize your Task workflow for on-demand business. This auto-starts the Task at acceptance by Agent and allows only one Task at a time.
Custom field templates
Go to Menu > Settings > Templates
Custom fields allow you to capture the information in a form that is specific to your business.
You can create multiple templates based on your requirement and you can add as many custom fields in a template as required.
Once the template is created, you can add the template while creating a new task, thus providing you additional fields.
These custom fields are shared with your agents/ drivers in the app, providing them the additional info as required.
App Side Display: In the app side display drop down you can either select Read Only/Allow Agent Input. If you choose to Allow agent Input as per your needs, you can also make the particular field mandatory, agents will need to fill the field it in order to complete a task.
Input Type: Each field has it’s own input type, you can select it to number, text, image, date or dropdown.
You can also edit, duplicate or delete a custom template by clicking on the symbol present at the right side of a custom field.
Task Pricing and Agent Earning
This add-on allows you to track your agent’s earnings & task pricing with configurable rule settings. You can pay compensation to your agents or calculate pricing for the customer on any value in the custom fields of the template. Once activated the Earning & Pricing data is displayed in the Analytics section on Dashboard as well as Earning & Pricing tab in Agent App.
Steps for activating Task Pricing and Agent Earning:
Note: You can have more than one rule for a template. The latest rule will be active.
Order tracking web-link
When the agent taps “Start a Task” on the mobile app, a notification in the form of SMS and email (if captured) is sent to the customer associated with the task. The message also contains a tracking link which allows the customer to view the real-time location on the map and the ETA of the agent.
Below is the sample message. Modify the content and use tags (variables) to create the message unique to your business.
Feedback from Customer
Once the task is complete, the same tracking link converts into a feedback page. The customer also receives an SMS and email with a link, asking for the feedback. The customer can rate their experience with a star rating and also leave a comment.
Below is the sample SMS:
Hi Susan. Your order was successfully delivered at 11 am. Please help us improve our service by rating your delivery experience https://jungleworks.com/tookan/
Connect your account to an SMS Gateway

Agent mobile app – offline capability
Tookan’s agent mobile app offline capability gives the power to your field workforce to work anytime and anywhere — — totally unplugged.
The application lets you access and take action on all your tasks for the given day without the internet connection.
Easily access all the task details, customer name, address, notes, custom fields and all other task related information.
You can take all the actions in the offline mode, that you can while connected. Call or message the customers, add notes, add images, add a signature or add/update custom fields.
Easily update the task milestones during the offline mode. You can start the task, arrive (depending on your business type workflow) and complete the task.
The major milestone timestamps (like start time, successful time etc) will always show the actual times and not synchronization time.
Once back online, any action in the app will automatically sync all your offline activity back to your manager’s dashboard. Depending on the number of tasks/actions taken, the sync might take a few minutes.
How to activate offline capability for your account?
Go to Menu > Extensions > Activate Offline Sync
Once you activate it from the admin dashboard, your agents would need to log out from the mobile app & login again (or kill/open the app).
Note: The geo-stamps (location) and the timestamps are captured on every action taken by the agent and are accurate in most of the scenarios, however, the accuracy might get hampered due to multiple reasons during the offline mode. If your business involves agent payment based on the distance traveled or similar activity, we recommend not to use the offline mode.
Payment invoice template
Payment Invoice Template allows creating a dynamic payment invoice template that will be shown to your agents within the app after the task is completed. You can also use arithmetic and if-else formulae while creating this template in order to generate the dynamic invoice.
To activate the App Invoicing Module add-on from Tookan Extensions:
Go to Menu > Extensions > Activate App Invoicing Module
