Visit Boris website Device add to summary form

Device add to summary form allows data to be collected from a number of forms and presented in a single place.  These summaries can be built up during a day, week or on an on-going basis and can be related to just the work for a particular customer or location, or they can contain information for all customers.

For example, an engineer completes a job sheet for each job completed during the week. Each completed job sheet creates an entry in a weekly summary containing customer and location, date, job number and hours worked. The weekly summary acts as their timesheet for that week.

Another example might be when an operative completes a worksheet for each task they perform on site. Summary details of the worksheet are added to a daily summary form. This form is then used as a sign-off document for the client.

*Description

A descriptive text to identify this action

*Summary form Select the template that has already been prepared for use as a summary from the drop-down list.
Customer for summary “Use current” will create a separate summary form for each customer where required. If you were creating a daily summary and you worked for 4 customers then you would have 4 summary forms. Alternatively, you can choose a specific customer. This will usually be your own “internal” customer (eg. “My Company”, “HQ”).
Location for summary “Use current” will create a separate summary form for each location/project where required. If you were creating a daily summary and you worked at 4 locations then you would have 4 summary forms. Alternatively, you can choose a specific location. This will usually be your own “internal” customer (eg. “My Company”, “HQ”).
