On the mobile device you can either perform an event on a single asset or on multiple assets.
Performing an Event on a Single Asset
When performing an event on a single asset there are a few different ways to get to the same screen. Either from the events screen, Find box or Asset Search
To get to the Events screen, click "Events" on the main page. On the next screen you will be provided with a Find box to search for the particular asset you need to perform an event on. Whether you scan a RFID tag or enter the Serial or Reference Number you will be taken to the asset summary page. Once here click on Start Event in the lower right corner. Choose the event type you would like to perform from the drop down and the event will be started. Click here to continue the walkthrough.
Find box/Asset Search
You can also start an event by scanning an RFID tag or entering a serial/reference number in the find box on the top of the main page. This will take you to the asset summary page. You can also find an asset by clicking "Assets" on the main page, entering your search criteria and clicking on "View" once you have found the asset you are looking for. This will also take you to the asset summary page. Once here click on Start Event in the lower right corner. Choose the event type you would like to perform from the drop down and the event will be started. Click here to continue the walkthrough.
Performing the Event
The first screen you will see after choosing the event type will be the details. These fields (Eg. Owner, Location, Date Performed) are the same as their counterparts on the web. To proceed to the event form, tap "Event Form" at the bottom of the screen.
NOTE: The items on this "bar" are used to navigate through the event process. You can go back and forth between the sections as you see fit.
At the top of the event form you will see a camera icon that will enable you to take pictures (if your device has a camera) of the event. You can also take pictures when you have opened a recommendation or deficiency box for a specific criteria. Entering information into the event form works exactly the same as it does on Field ID Web. The difference here is the sections of the event form. The first section of the form will be opened already and you can click the down arrow to the left of the section name to collapse it. To expand a section click on the right pointing arrow next to the section name and it will expand downwards. Expanding a section will collapse any section that is open just to help avoiding confusion as to which section you are working on.
Next tap Schedules or the right point arrow at the bottom to proceed to the next page. The schedules screen will show you if any auto-schedules have been created and allows you to edit or remove them. You can also create a schedule of your own from this page. Tapping the right pointing arrow will take you to the post-event screen. Here you can set the result of the event, change the asset status, mark a schedule complete and/or add any general comments about the event. To save the event click Submit or Cancel if you want to cancel this event.
Performing an Event on Multiple Assets
To perform an event on multiple assets you need to first click "Events" on the main screen, and next tap "Multiple Assets". On this next page you will be present with a find box that enables you to search for your asset. The find box works exactly the same as the find box mentioned above with the exception that you can find multiple assets and add them to your queue. Once all the assets you want to perform an event on are in your queue tap next to proceed. The next page will give you the option to choose the event type you want to perform on these assets. The event types listed here are the events that are common to these assets. Once you have selected your asset type, tap next to continue. Performing the event is the same as explained above with minor differences. The first being that you can use existing values for some fields by checking a box named "Use existing values from the assets". Secondly, auto-scheduling is not available. However you can manually create a schedule that will be added to all the assets you are performing the event on. Submit is replaced by next which will take you to a screen showing you the assets you are working with and give you the option to submit. When tap submit the assets will disappear from the queue on by one until the event has been saved to all of them. Lastly you will be asked if you want to perform another event on those same assets.
