Activity Feed Notifications
When Forms are submitted through the mobile application this will trigger an Activity Feed Alert. In real time workers will be notified of new entries so action can be taken immediately. This is particularly helpful to help quickly handle incidents out on the jobsite. From the home page (or any other page with the Activity Feed open you will be able to see when new Forms have been submitted. Click on the Form Result in the Activity Feed to view the content. Click the pop out button to view the full Form Result or click edit to perform a quick edit without leaving the home page.
Reviewing Form Results
To view all Form Results, current and historical it is best to visit the Form Results page. In the Navigation click Field Data > Form Results to see a list of all Form submissions.
From this list view you can apply filters to the form results list, to help you find the right information. You are able to filter by date, form name, status, assignee, submitted vs in progress and collaborative vs private forms. These filters can help you isolate the forms that you need to take action on. The assignee form can be helpful if you need to route inbound form results to certain people or department heads to take action on, ie a Maintenance Request form can be assigned to the Head Mechanic.
Click into any row to view the Form Results.
