Cleaning Instructions are a way to communicate what is expected of your staff during their shifts at each location they are cleaning. When your customers give you their requirements, they may provide a list in a spreadsheet (Excel, Google Sheets, Numbers). You are able to copy and paste from the spreadsheet in to Swept however the formatting may cause the table to not appear fully in the mobile app as you cannot scroll side to side within Cleaning Instructions. We give step by step instructions below to help you copy and paste this information quickly and easily.
