• Clearing Cache (ADMIN)

    If you've updated or added information in the admin portal of FastGem, but the information you entered/changed is not reflected in Front End, it is very likely to be a caching issue.

    To resolve this, log into the Admin Section of your FastGem and find the small, gray, "Clean Cache" option at the bottom middle of your screen (highlighted in yellow below):

    Click "Clean Cache," then return to front end FastGem, refresh your page, and try again. 

    If the problem persists, please contact FastGem support.

  • Problem: 2 Rep/Tech Records Created for 1 User


    There should only ever be 1 record for each user onboarded into FastGem. If a second record is accidentally or somehow created in the system, the following steps will need to be taken for troubleshooting. 

    Login to backend (FastGem ADMIN). Click on 'Reps' on the 'Control Panel' menu list.



    Find the duplicate record that was created. (NOTE: It is EXTREMELY important that you are unpublishing the correct rep record, especially if this rep already has customers they're tied to. If you need help checking this, please consult an admin, or FastGem support, so you do not lose important data.) 


    Check that user's box and click on 'Unpublish' at the top of the screen.



    NOTE: Now, you will want to make sure the 'ME' link is set to the correct rep record. This is just to safeguard from any data being misconstrued in your FastGem instance. For more information on setting a user's 'ME' link correctly, please see help article "Error Message: Your Account isn't set up correctly..."




  • Problem: Appointment not Appearing in Calendar

    If you have scheduled an installation and assigned a technician, but the installation is not appearing in the calendar, complete the following steps: 

    First, make sure the appointment you've scheduled is in the correct status; it should be in a status that you want showing up on your calendar page. If it is, then:

    Login to the Admin portal (back end) of your instance.This can be reached by adding /a to the end of your instance URL. For example, the link to the admin portal for our demo instance is 

    (Note: Users with special Configuration User permissions will not need to login to the Admin portal (back end) in order to access calendar configurations. Instead, they can simply navigate to SITE MGMT > Config)

    For users without special Configuration User permissions: Once you are logged into the Admin portal, navigate to Config: 


    From there, the Content Types tab is the first tab you should land on: 


    Click 'Calendar' to open the 'Calendar' section. The 'Status viewable from Calendar' box should already have some statuses listed in it. (If no statuses are listed in this box, ALL statuses show up on the calendar):



    Add the status that you want to appear to this box using the dropdown, and Save. 

    Your appointment should now appear on the calendar in front end.

  • Problem: Cleared Work Order Not Showing Up in Payroll

    Problem: Work order doesn't show up in payroll. 

    Resolution: Check payment cleared status and date. Make sure Payment Cleared date is shown. 

    Note: We are using 'Payment Cleared' because this is the most commonly used 'cleared' status. A 'cleared' status is the status that allows the work order to appear in Snapshot Payroll for processing. If your instance is configured differently, it is possible that your 'cleared' status may be something else, like 'Installed.' If that is the case, you would want to check to make sure the Installed date is shown. 

    1. From Front- end, Click on 'Appointments' tab (This may be called 'Work Orders' or something else, depending on your instance's customization). Type the name of the customer in search bar. Hit the 'Enter' key on your keyboard. Click on customer name to go to link to submission page for that customer. 

    2. Click the 'Edit' button.
