Use the instructions provided below to update your ServiceTitan integration (if applicable) as Service Titan is shutting down its v1 API.
This update must be completed by the end of July 2022.
The update to this integration is done in two parts:
- Setting up the GPS Provider
- Enabling the API Access
1. Setting up the GPS Provider
- Log into your ServiceTitan account and navigate to Settings by clicking the gear in the top-right corner of the page.
- From the menu on the left, click Integrations, then GPS.
- On the GPS Providers screen, a line entry for GPS Insight should exist, click Edit under “Actions”. If not, click Add and select “GPS Insight” from the list on the first line.
- Click the Devices tab and match your VINs (first column) and technician name (second column) from vehicles tracked by GPS Insight with technicians defined in ServiceTitan. Entering Memos (third column) is optional.
In the GPS Insight Portal, you can click on a vehicle from the Vehicle List to get the VINs you need to align each vehicle with their technician in ServiceTitan. To see/copy the VIN for a vehicle, click on the vehicle then click Edit. Click the VIN field to highlight the VIN and copy using your keyboard command.
If you need to add a device, click Add Device, enter VIN (first column) and select technician name (second column) from the drop-down.
