What is Work Type?
The Work Type is the type of work or job that you are about to perform. Put simply, it is your business workflow. A Work Type could be a Baseline Assessment, Condition Monitoring or a Building & Pest Inspection. How this Work Type is defined is configured on Obzervr Manager.
The Work Type governs what data you collect and how you do it.
What is Work Category?
Work Category is another way to categorise or subdivide a Work 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 Work List. You will use this Functional Location to differentiate between your Work.
