Job attachments are third party items that can be sent to the mobile device with the form.

 

Jobattachments can be made mandatory, in which case the software will record when the attachment was opened/accessed and won't allow the form to be completed until it has been opened/accessed. Clearly there can be no guarantees beyond this that the user has read or understood the information, although a signature item can be added to provide acknowledgement from the user that they have done so.

*Caption The caption/label to be displayed for these attachments.
Job Detail Select a job definition from the drop-down list.
Mandatory (force all documents to be opened) Ticking this box will require that the user taps on each attachment to open or view it. Until each attachment has been viewed the form cannot be finished.
Send attachments back to server Tick this box to return the attachment to the server after modifications have been made - eg a Microsoft Word document that needs to be amended.
Don't show default job PDF document Each job on the system has an associated PDF document. By default this is just a simple document containing a list of all of the items in the job. In most cases there wouldn't be a good reason for displaying this on the device, in which case tick this box to hide the PDF.

*Unique name

The unique name must be entered for each item and is a mandatory field. The name is used internally and so is not generally of importance. A default value is generated by the system automatically. You may wish to override this value to have a “nicer” name if the field concerned is part of a calculation or if you are exporting the data to another system.
