Dynamic Table Feature included on Forms

Our Dynamic Table feature now enables a field worker to access additional information when completing a custom form/survey on a mobile device.

This new feature was created to allow field workers access to extra database information that can be loaded into the Timecard system’s form, directly as a CSV File.


The dynamic table can provide information such as available products in the warehouse with codes and descriptions, a List of Work Orders with customer names, address, phone numbers, etc.  

This was designed not only to show the information back to the workers but also to use it as a selection and show this in our reports information.

This is a convenient way to show and retrieve that important information that is key for your business.

Two New Forms Feature Improvements: Video Capture and Radio Button

We are excited to announce that we have been working on some improvements to the forms features given feedback from our existing customers. Those two enhancements include the ability to now record a 30-second Video inside the form and Radio Button for answers based on Yes-No questions.

 Radio Buttons

Given more and more of our customers are using our solution for Covid-19 Self-Assessment Surveys, the radio buttons from the custom fields is a new “customer favorite” as this feature allows field workers to answer Yes-No questions really fast and in a more convenient way.


Here’s an example view from the Wellness Form:




The Administrator can setup is feature by going to Admin/Manage Custom Fields/Forms/Select the form/Edit form Fields/




30 Seconds Video

 This feature gives the worker the capability to take a 30-second video inside a form to document customer visits or important things happening on the field.




The Administrator can setup this features by going to Admin/Manage Custom Fields/Forms/Select the form/Edit form Fields/

"Timesheet Report With Totals"

We have just released a brand new report called "Timesheet Report With Totals"!

The main purpose for this one is to be able to view Tasks and Sub-Tasks sorted by date, as well as total day time, overtime and double time. This report also includes any breaks or meals that were taken while on a specific task and something worthy of pointing out, is that it will also tell you the specific day of the week for each task.

Here is a sample of this report:

(Click on image to enlarge)

This report includes CSV and PDF exports, as well as some upcoming editing features that we'll be talking about in a future blog post.

We hope you like it!

Enhanced Functionality for Auto Task Changes

We have recently added an enhancement to the GPS Auto Task Change functionality where the application will determine if the user has been inside the area for a specific period of time. This can be very useful in cases where the auto task change does not need to be triggered immediately, for example, if the employee is just driving by the area.

To set this up, it's easier to add this rule to the Default SmartFence and apply it to all the tasks but of course, it can also be done per task individually. In this example, we'll use the Default SmartFence.

Go to the Administration tab and select "Rules, Action and Fences" in the Advanced section:

Next, select "Manage SmartFences":

Click to "Edit" the Default SmartFence:

Once inside the Default Fence, set the radius to the desired size and click on "Create New" within the Rules section:

On the following screen is where you will select the rule called "Inside Area for at least"; here we have set it to 3 minutes. This means that once the employee has entered the area, the app will start counting time and if it reaches the 3 minutes, then the task will be changed to what we setup in the next step:

Once this is done, click on "Create New Action" at the bottom:

Then, tick the "Automatic Field Device Event" option and select "Change Task" in the Event Type dropdown menu. Doing this will change the employee to the task of the area they are standing in for at least 3 minutes. If you wanted to change to a specific task, then you can tick the Set Task Info option to pick the specific task that you wish the employee to be changed to:

From here on, you can save it until you are back at the first screen (where you specify the radius). Here you have to click on "Add Existing" to apply the newly created rule to the default fence:

After this, the rule will be saved successfully!

If you have any questions, make sure to ask us in the comments section!
