What is a reporter user?
A Reporter User is anyone in your wider workforce (or external) that can report an issue, raise a job, or submit a work order directly to you.
Reporter Users have limited permissions, so they can’t access your back office, Dashboard or Teams App – they only have access to the Reporter App or Reporter Web Portal, and only if you give them access.
You’re in control – but give access to your wider workforce to improve service.
- Teaching Staff (Schools)
- Care Workers (Health Care)
- Leaseholders (Developers)
What is a team user?
A Team User is someone in your immediate Team who will manage the administrative side of FaultFixers, including accessing, managing, reviewing, responding and resolving any or all of your maintenance tasks.

What are Locations/ Buildings?
Your FaultFixers account can be configured to suit you business.
Maintenance Tasks (reactive & planned), Jobs, Issues, Forms etc, can be created and logged against:
- An Account
- A Building
- A Location
- An Asset (requires asset feature)
You can then benefit through granular reporting into each layer, so if you would like to know which Asset has cost the most in maintenance during the year, it’s quick to do so.
The greater the granularity of your FaultFixers setup, the more benefits you’ll get and the more helpful insightful your data will be.
- Link a boiler certificate to the Asset, within a Location, within a Building, within your Account.
