ConSol Mobile is comprised of two seperate work modes that allow for the viewing and updating of orders both on and off-site. You can toggle between the two alternative modes via the button in the top right corner of any active order.
What is Plan mode?
Plan mode is the place to review an order's details and provide further context not related to on-site activity.
Once selected, an order opens directly with the Summary tab in focus, enabling you to see job details, including the address and map of the job location, the due Date of completion, any special instructions and your customer’s contact details.
The items tab details the work order items in scope for the job, from this screen you can add and edit item quantities and request a variation via the floating button if required. Rates for items are not currently viewable in ConSol Mobile.
The documents tab provides an overview of any documents uploaded and details the history of images taken on site. This screen provides the option to upload documents and take images or video to provide further context to order details from a Supplier perspective, such as images of site maps or work vehicles. Images and videos of works being completed should be taken from Work Mode exclusively, as they lack the time stamping and geo-location meta data required to meet customer requirements when uploaded from Plan Mode.
Job notes can be uploaded at any time in the Notes tab. Any updates to this section are visible to both Customers and Suppliers.
What is Work Mode?
Work mode is designed for the updates to an order required when on-site including. When transitioning from Plan to Work mode users will be prompted to confirm they are at the order location and ready to begin work.
Three tabs identify what stage the job is at Arrive, In Progress and Wrap up in Work Mode.
Arrive: Take your arrival site photos here and make note of any relevant observations. Photos taken within the app will be watermarked with time, date, longitude and latitude, as well as Order ID.
In Progress: Clicking "START WORK" transitions a user to the In Progress screen. Track your daily progress here by updating the used quantities on items and taking photographs of the job as you progress.
Wrap Up: When you have finished work for the day, press “READY TO LEAVE” to take you to the Wrap Up screen. Utilise this screen to take photos of the wrapped up work site and update item quantities to correctly reflect the work completed throughout the day. Selecting “WORK COMPLETE" indicates that your time on site is over. Should there be the need to return, press “SOME WORK REMAINS”. Orders marked as ‘WORK COMPLETE” will be moved from the active job worklist to the completed job worklist and users will be prompted to confirm they are now off-site. Jobs can be recalled from the completed jobs worklist.
