If you book a phone support session with an AroFlo consultant, please ensure you have your computer (PC/Mac/laptop) connected to the internet and ready for use. If more than one person will be attending the session, please ensure all participants:

If at any time the transition to AroFlo Go becomes difficult, please let us know and we will do our best to assist with the process. We have set up thousands of users, so we can provide plenty of tips and tricks and practical guidance to help you successfully implement AroFlo Go into your business.
Bring Your Data Over
Import your client list and more
Load up your new AroFlo Go site with your existing clients, suppliers, assets and inventory.
You can do this yourself by using AroFlo's Bulk Data Import feature, or contact our Customer Service team for assistance.
Set up work order email imports
If your clients email their job requests in a consistent format, or you have a web enquiry form that generates an email, we can configure AroFlo to read these emails and automatically create jobs using the key details.
Work order email imports can be set up for any number of clients.
If your client changes the format of their work order, please notify our Customer Service team. The import settings are unique to the original work order format and any changes will result in a new work order set-up.
1. Send us a support request and include the following details:
- The name of the client sending the work orders exactly as it appears in AroFlo.
The domain where work orders come from (e.g. "@aroflo.com.au", "@hotmail.com")
- The user in AroFlo (user's name) that should be notified on import of success or failure.
- The default Task Type the automated task should be assigned to.
- If you have multiple business units, please nominate the Business Unit the automated task should be assigned to.
2. Attach a minimum of 4 samples of the work order email and attachments. These should include:
- Samples with different location details (if applicable).
- Samples with multiple pages.
- Any other attachments that are included in the emails.
- The body of the email that has the attachments.
If the work order details are in the body of an email, please contact our Customer Service team for assistance.
Work orders must be in one of the following file types: PDF, CSV, TXT, RTF, DOC, DOCX or part of the email body.
Please note AroFlo is unable to read PDF files generated from a scanned document.
To ensure the maximum number of fields are captured when importing, please use the following format for the email body:
Task Description: (This is the task identifier in AroFlo - usually the job address)
Cust Order Number:
Due Date: (Please use a consistent format, best is: yyyy-mm-dd. Avoid using American format.)
Priority: (If you use this, please ensure the priority descriptions are the same as you have set up in AroFlo)
Location: (Job address - may be the same as task description)
Location Phone: (Location contact)
Note1: (These will be notes on the task)
