A satisfaction note needs to be signed by the customer upon completion of the job to say they are satisfied with the work you have completed in order for you to get paid. There is a tab in the ‘QUOTES’ section of the App itself where you will find the satisfaction note. Simply complete the customer details and ask them to sign the screen and click submit. This is sent to Phoenix who will authorise the disbursement of funds to you.
