v1.2 Android & iPad
Search / History
A Spotter app user is now able to search for past inspections from any device. Searches can be performed by Inspection name, template name and/or the first 2 global fields. The user may also download a previous inspection to the device. This also allows users to free up space on the device by removing old inspections from it, and later download one or more again if needed. The most recent 50 inspections will be stored on the device by default.
Signatures can now be captured in the Spotter app. A new Question Type labeled "Signature Line" in now available for this. The Administrator, when adding the field, can label it via the "Question Text" and the "Answer" will be the Signature Capture. The signature line will be added to the Template in the specified category and sort order with the label it has been given. The Signature may be taken with a finger or stylus and will be stored and available for Review & Reporting along with the date and time the form was submitted. The form may be signed by another party (not taking the form). A text field for the typed name could be created as the next question in the form.
This is a new Question/Answer type that will provide a button on screen allowing the inspector to capture their current GPS location. Location Services must be enabled on the device for this to work. Lat, Lon, Altitude and Accuracy will be captured. Lat/Lon and Altitude will be displayed on the tablet and the user can click a map icon to access the location on their tablet’s map app. Lat/Lon, Altitude and Accuracy will be displayed in Review & Reports. Review will also link to an interactive map with pin. The display can be configured to show meters or feet.
The Date/Time Answer Type has become more versatile. It may be configured for any of the following inputs:
Date only (time will default to current time)
Time only (date will default to current date)
Date & Time
The "Time Only" option will be useful as a time clock for inspectors/employees or to record the start and end time for an event or process. Date & Time will be stored in all cases and available for review and reporting. The Time will be represented in the time zone of the Inspector as they fill out the inspection.
