mobileX-Dynamic Forms

In many companies, forms are a central component in the documentation of processes in service and maintenance. It is therefore not uncommon for the large number of existing forms to represent a hurdle in the consistent, digital implementation of business processes. Digitizing existing forms, however, often causes such high costs that in the end only the most important ones are digitized. The remaining forms are either abolished or filled in manually and, if necessary, entered manually by the office staff. The Dynamic Forms module, an optional extension for mobileX-MIP for Field Service, provides a remedy here. For mobileX-CrossMIP there are two options for digital forms.


Create individual forms

mobileX-Dynamic forms in mobileX-MIP for Field Service enable the central creation and rollout of any number of forms. Based on the widespread XML standard, companies can create new forms according to their individual requirements or modify and extend existing ones.

Wide range of input options

mobileX-Dynamic forms offer different input options for entering data. Labels, enumerations and pages, text fields, drop-down lists, checkboxes, signatures, tables and flexible lists can be digitally mapped using the module.

Saving as PDF document or record

Values that are captured via dynamic forms can be saved both unstructured – as a PDF file – and structured in the ERP system as a data record. A structured feedback can be used, for example, to record measured values (as a measurement document at measuring points) or master data (as characteristics for devices), checklists or code groups.

Validation of values

Already during the input, an automatic validation of the values with rules from the XML code or from the ERP system takes place. In addition, individual fields or complete areas can be shown or hidden within the digital form depending on the values entered.

Create an individual layout

With the report designer, the layout of digital forms can be individually designed. Text fields, graphics or tables can be placed and formatted by drag-and-drop. Logos and other graphic elements can be easily integrated into the document. Companies can also use a paper form as a template in the graphic tool for the creation.

Data backup

Since the entered data is temporarily stored on the MIP server, it is not lost, unlike paper forms. Even if a computer fails, the data is still backed up.

Integration of photos

Using the file selection or integrated camera of his mobile device, the technician can capture images directly in mobileX-MIP for Field Service, edit them and transfer them integrated in the PDF version of the form to the office staff. It can also display images that are transferred from the backend.
