Tips for staying on top of condo work orders!

Work Orders

Work orders can snowball and leave you blinded in a full white-out situation.
Stay on top of work orders from residents with these tips! 

Establish a Routine

Do you like to wake up early and get started on your emails from home? Or are you more likely to hit snooze and answer emails over dinner? Use your body’s natural time clock to build a schedule that works for you. Tackle tasks when your energy is at the highest regardless of if that time hits in the morning or in the evening. 

Identify the Correct Person

Save time by assigning the job to the correct person. Once the work order is submitted by the resident simply use the Evercondo Work Order feature to assign the request to the appropriate person. Received a resident requesting a new key for the their unit? Send the request directly to the front desk manager who can then discuss the matter directly with the resident while you move onto the next item on your agenda. 

Be Flexible

It is easy to sit down at the start of the week and make an agenda assigning how many minutes or hours you will spend on each task. 
But the truth is that no matter how much you plan you cannot plan for the unexpected like a flood in the parking garage or an elevator power outage.  
Remember that you are not super-man and a task that appears simple may take longer than anticipated. Be flexible and remember that sometimes you just have to go with the flow. 

Identify What is ‘Urgent’ and What is ‘Important’ 

Find out what work orders are important and what work orders require immediate attention. Define work that, if not completed by the end of the day or in the next several hours, will have negative consequences and the work that can is ongoing or preventative.
