Overview

Go iLawn provides map-based tools for measuring property takeoffs. Aspire has integrated with this measurement tool allowing it to be accessed from within Aspire for measuring takeoffs. Measurements made are then automatically updated in Aspire.

The integration will use the Takeoff Groups and Takeoff Items in Aspire. These items will flow into the Aspire Template in Go iLawn.

⚠️ A user assigned to the System Admin role is required for these steps to be completed.

In order to integrate with Go iLawn, there are steps that must be completed in Aspire. The following instructions detail the information that is required to set up the integration between the two systems.

Enabling the Integration in Aspire

Training Video Overview

Enabling Option and Choosing Provider in Administration

Once the feature has been made available, the integration can be enabled within Aspire.

1. From the main sidebar menu in Aspire, click on the Administration option.

2. Once opened, click on the Edit Application Configuration ( ✏️ ) icon.

3. The takeoff integration options can be found by clicking on the Application tab.

4. The Enable Takeoff Integration must be selected first, and then the option for which service should be used will become active.

API Client ID and Secret

⚠️ Access to the API is required in order to have a Client ID and Secret, which is needed to complete the integration with Go iLawn. The Client ID and Secret will need to be provided to each program.

From Evolution Administration, click on the API option.

If one is not already present, a Client ID and Secret will need to be created by clicking the Generate button. The Secret should be recorded and kept in a safe place.

⚠️ If there are other integrations that use these credentials, please remember that if the Secret needs to be regenerated at any time, the value will need to be updated in all integrations using these values.

For more information on managing the API credentials, refer to the API Credential Generation article for more details.


Setting Up Go iLawn

The integration between Go iLawn and Aspire requires the following steps to be completed in Go iLawn.

1. Log into Go iLawn, click on the User icon in the upper right corner, and select Settings from the menu. The user role must have Admin rights in order to see this option.

2. The Settings box will appear. Click on the Aspire Integration option.

3. The Integrate with Aspire screen will appear. You will now see the Client ID and the Client Secret fields that are used to connect your Aspire system with Go iLawn.

4. Click on the Edit button to begin entering the credentials from Aspire. These credentials should be copied from the API settings in Evolution Administration within Aspire (see previous setup information for assistance).

5. Once the credentials are entered, click on the Submit button to save the entries.

6. Match the units of measure for use between the systems. Scroll down to the Match Units of Measure section.

7. The list of units of measure can be updated by clicking on the green Refresh button.

8. For each Aspire unit of measure, use the drop down in the Go iLawn Unit of Measure column for each one to match the units of measure between the systems.

Make sure to map all unit of measure values that will be used. Any unmapped values will not send data back into Aspire. If you do not plan to use a particular unit of measure in Go iLawn, it does not need to be mapped.

9. Further down on the screen, there is a Match Takeoff Items to Services section. If data is to be sent into Aspire for a Go iLawn project that isn’t using the Aspire Template, then this mapping needs to be completed. This section does not need to be populated in order to use the Aspire Template though.

For each Aspire Takeoff item to be used, a corresponding Go iLawn Service must be selected.

  • If the mappings need to change, you can use the dropdown to change the service.

  • If a mapping needs to be removed, choose the Select a Service option from the drop down to remove the mapping.
