    Have/Get someone do something = Organise/arrange for someone to do something.

    Have the janitor arrange for the plumber to deal with the blockage.

    Make someone do something = Force someone to do something.

    Make your son behave himself. He is causing a disturbance.

    It's always have/make someone do something, but get somebody to do something.
