Toggling On & Off within the LOWO app
Being in the service based industry means that you’re at the beck-and-call of your clients and their schedules. But what happens when you want to take control of your schedule and start to cluster clients and jobs together so that they make sense for YOU?
LOWO is the on-demand home repair and maintenance app that uses your phone’s GPS to see the general location where you're available and let people know you’re willing and able to take on new clients. Handymen, Plumbers, Electricians, Pool and Tree Service — practically any professional home service — can be connected through LOWO. This is great news if you’re often giving estimates and find large gaps in your day. We’ve built in a not-so-secret weapon to combat down-time: the Toggle On and Off feature. When you’re available and ready to take on a new job, Toggle On. When you’re ready to call it a day (or afternoon, or morning–who are we to judge?), Toggle Off. Think of it as your bat signal for taking on new jobs.
Here are some FAQs and tips on the Toggle On feature:
Will people know my exact location?
No, we do not share your exact location. LOWO utilizes technology to mask your exact location while putting you close enough on the map so that customers know you’re in the area.
What the Homeowners, Property Managers, Renters, and Builders see
What the Service Pro sees
Do I have to use the "Always On" setting in iOS settings?
No, but if you don't, then the app will show you in your last known location when you last used the app. Don’t fret: You can Toggle On so that customers can see your general location and availability (and Toggle Off so that they can't).
Isn't LOWO always tracking my phone then?
OK, yes, but we don’t do anything with the information.
So, LOWO doesn't sell my location information?
That's correct. Selling your location data violates our core values and is a major “no-no.” We treat Service Pros and Homeowners, Property Managers, and Builders the way we want to be treated.
Next we’ll take you through how to send out a Boost and broadcast to nearby users that you’re available.
