Mobile Custodial Inspection in mobileTMA GO for Android - WebTMA 5

Path: Menu > Custodial Inspect

If your organization has the Custodial Management* module in WebTMA as well as the mobileCustodial application for mobileTMA GO, technicians and supervisors can perform inspections and create work requests using mobileTMA GO.

Certain settings within WebTMA are required before the inspections are available for download.

First, the technician’s record in WebTMA must be marked not only to allow mobile access but also to authorize the technician to make custodial inspections from the mobile device. Be certain that the check boxes that apply to Custodial Insp found at Admin > User Management > Records / Mobile Access Tab–mobileTMA GO Subtab are marked to grant appropriate permission.

On the Transaction > Custodial > Inspection / Identity Tab the Inspection requires that the technician is set as an Inspector on the Inspector Tab.

Once saved, the Inspection is downloaded to the mobile device when it is online.

The inspection list is available by following the menu path (Menu > Custodial Inspect) and selecting Refresh.

After Refresh, the window shows a list of Custodial Inspections.

*Note: WebTMA offers two Custodial modules, Custodial Management and Custodial for Service Providers. Your organization determines which module is best for your circumstances.
