Now that you've been approved to complete Dollys, lets get into how to navigate the app to help you book some jobs.
Dolly highly recommends that Helpers and Hands have GPS or the location setting turned on while using the Helper app and working on Dollys. For any issues that may arise, Dolly support must be able to verify arrival at a customer's location for issues including cancellations, customer no-shows, etc.
