What is the Assignment Type?
The Assignment Type is the type of work or job that you are about to perform. Put simply, it is your business workflow. An Assignment Type could be a Baseline Assessment, Condition Monitoring or a Building & Pest Inspection. How this Assignment Type is defined is configured on Obzervr Manager. Wondering how to build Assignment Types? Check out the Obzervr Manager Getting Started series.
The Assignment Type governs what data you collect and how you do it.
What is Assignment Category?
An Assignment Category is another way to categorise or subdivide an Assignment Type. For example, are you performing a routine inspection or is it ad hoc? Is the service you are undertaking a daily, weekly, 125-hour or 500-hour service? These are all ways to categorise a job you are about to perform.
What is Functional Location?
This is where you are doing your job. The Functional Location drop-down is the most important. It will appear in the Assignment List. You will use this Functional Location to differentiate between your Assignments.
