Been wondering what Attributes are? Attributes are found in the Configuration section of the Manager web portal. They are additional, static information about a Location.
Attributes are a way to communicate to your Capture mobile app users more information about where they are.
For example, if your Assignment Point is called a Location Point or Site, you might like to some additional General Site Information such as the Gauging Station Number, Start of Monitoring, Division, Installation Date, Status and Material. When the Capture mobile app user creates an Assignment with the Assignment Point which has Attributes, it will show on the Assignment Details page.
