Mobile Application

The mobile application also has several new features, which are highlighted below.

Create Work Order directly from an inspection

Work Orders can have different formats and will automatically copy information from the originating inspection. Different inspection types can have one or more work order forms to choose from. When creating a work order, information can be selected to copy over. Once created, Connected Field™ treats it as another task in the system.
