Attach Files to enhance Forms and Member Information

New Feature Release! Aladtec has released an enhancement to Forms and the Member Database allowing files to be attached to form submissions and to a member’s My Info page.


This enhancement will increase efficiency, eliminate paper filing, and streamline processes. For example, using this new feature will allow for:
  • Quickly assessing damage to vehicles by reviewing the attached pictures of damages found during daily rig checks
  • Keeping copies of licenses and certifications for each member allowing for easy access and validation
  • Attaching invoices and receipts to purchase orders, expense reports, etc.

To take advantage of this new enhancement, an administrator will need to add an Attachment field via the Form Configurator or the Member Database Configurator. To add the Attachment field in either configurator:
  1. Drag and drop the Attachment field into the chosen form or the Member Database
  2. Name the field 
  3. Customize the field (i.e. required, number of files, etc.) 
  4. Save

The Form Configurator has a new field available called Attachment, see below.





In the example below, via the Form Configurator, the Attachment field was added to a form and named “Documentation”.

The “Documentation” field below has been customized to allow for three Attachments.



Once the “Documentation” field is available on an individual form, or in My Info, members with the correct permissions can easily attach a file.

In the example below, an image of a damaged vehicle is attached when submitting the form.


Files attached to submitted forms can be viewed on individual submissions, as well as in Form Reports. Files attached to member profiles can be viewed where member attributes can be viewed, including: My Info, the Member Database, and Reports.

In the Form Report shown below, clicking on the number of files gives the ability to view details about each file.



For questions or additional help with attaching files in Forms or the Member Database, please contact the Support Team at support@aladtec.com or 888.749.5550. As always, thank you for using Aladtec!

My Schedule page is now available in Mobile

Aladtec’s mobile version recently added a My Schedule page. This feature is very similar to the My Schedule page in the desktop version. It provides monthly and daily information specific to each member, in a color-coded format, making it easy to review and complete tasks relating to scheduled shifts, open shifts, trades, time off requests, and trades.


Additional details about the My Schedule page are included below. Note: Features within the My Schedule page may not be available, due to your system configuration. To take advantage of these features, please contact your System Admin or Aladtec Support for assistance.


Accessing the My Schedule page

Quickly access the My Schedule page via the Menu. Scroll down to view key information relating to Scheduled Time (including Minimum Staffing and Schedule Notes), Time Off, Trades, Open Shifts, and Events.



Viewing information for a specific day

The My Schedule page defaults to displaying an overview of the current month along with specific information on scheduled shifts, open shifts, trades, time off requests, and events for the current day. Tap a day in the month to view information for that day. Navigate to the previous or next month quickly, by using the arrows next to the date. Tap the displayed month to pick a new month or year. To return to the current day, use the Today option.

Setting View Options

Configure the My Schedule page to display Scheduled Time, Time Off, Trades, Open Shifts, or Events via View Options. These settings are automatically saved for returning to the My Schedule page.

  • Sign up for open shifts (purple blocks),
  • Accept trade requests (greenish/brown blocks),

Seeing black pixels in Chrome? Here’s how to fix it...

If you recently started noticing black pixels when using Chrome - here's a remedy to try...


ChromeError.png
A new version of Google Chrome (61.0.3163.100) was released on Thursday, September 21, 2017. For some users, this may have resulted in black pixels displaying while scrolling or hovering. To prevent this from happening, turn off “hardware acceleration” in Chrome. Turning “hardware acceleration” off should not affect any process negatively and will resolve this issue. To turn off “hardware acceleration,” follow the steps below.


Step 1 - Open Chrome settings.

Step 2 - Scroll down and open the Advanced settings.

Step 3 - Continue to scroll down further and disable hardware acceleration.

Step 4 - After disabling hardware acceleration you will need to relaunch your browser. Make sure to save any important work or progress before you relaunch it - just in case.


As always - if you have any questions about your Aladtec system, or if we can be of further help in any way - please give us a call at 888-749-5550.
