Want to learn more about the fields you capture on the Obzervr Capture app?
Data is commonly collected using checklists, service sheets or forms. These are usually checklists which must be completed throughout a job. A checklist can usually be broken down into Task Lists, Field Measurements and Groups. Let’s check out what a Task List, Field Measurement and Groups look like.
How to use Task Lists
Task Lists can be implemented at any stage of the assignment (i.e. Risk and Hazard Control is in the Plan stage and Housekeeping tasks are in the Complete stage). The Obzervr Administrator is the person who determines in which stage the Task List should be displayed. For example, this assignment has weekly tasks which must completed when out at site.
As you can see, there are different ways to enter the information i.e.
- True/False tick box
- Yes/No/NA tiles
- Photos & Comments
- Signature & Drawings
Once you complete each task, a timestamp is created and, if you go back to the previous page, the progress circle will be 100%.
How to use Field Measurements
- Open the Obzervr Capture app and select the Obzervr tab.
- You will see the Field Measurements option and if you click on it, there are Fields separated by Sections.
- Each field can have one of the following data types:
- Numeric range – green is in the range and red is out of range. This is an exceedance and will alert the Obzervr Administrator.
- Tiles i.e. PASS / FAIL
- Drop downs
- There are also some general features which each field measure has:
- Filter for Done or Not Done measures. This will allow you to quickly determine which fields need to be actioned.
How to use Groups
Another type of field measure is Groups. They can be created two ways – based on time or number. In this example, the Temperature and Turbidity sections are both groups. The Temperature group is time-based whereas turbidity is number-based.
- Click it and go through to the next page, you can see the three measurements I need to collect at each time interval. Choosing the first one, I can enter the temperature measurement I collect. Follow the same process for the next two.
- Choosing the Turbidity series, I will need to enter a name for the series, the date and time, and number of occurrences. The only difference is that the Series are not named based on Time. Instead, they count up, starting at 0.
