Use items on the Inventory menu to browse or create new inventory records. Using these windows, you can record parts issued and returned or enter new Asset, Area, Biomed Equipment, Equipment, IT Equipment, and Vehicle records on the handheld device for transfer to the WebTMA database.
Options for Inventory Records
Path: Menu > Inventory > [Maintenance-worthy Item]
The initial window for maintenance-worthy item categories (Equipment, Asset, etc.) includes a Search Server button. Enter your search text and tap the button to list existing items. Editing and saving changes to an existing record is very limited. When you open the existing record, you can use the features available for new records, described next, to Duplicate, Create Request, etc.
After you Save a new Inventory record, regardless of the type, re-open the record and tap the vertical ellipsis on the title bar to Duplicate or Save and Add the item.
The options for existing items include two more choices: Create Request and Create Work Order.
Reminder: For new records, this menu is only available after you have saved the record.
If you want to change a saved record, entries in most fields do not save.
Create Inventory Records
You can use mobileTMA GO to create inventory records for the various types of items on the Inventory menu.
If you create a new record that does not exist in WebTMA, the new record requires a location, repair center, tag #, type, and description. The Preferred RC field on all maintenance-worthy item windows is used to support the Biomed Make/Model and Equipment Make/Model functions.
When updating an existing record, the tag must exist in the application, and all other fields are optional. This applies to all inventory items.
