Adding Field Groups with Dynamic Items

This is a beta feature. Please contact support@fotonotes.com for more information on using this feature.

Dynamic Items are fields defined in a field group within a section of a template. Once defined, these dynamic items (or group of fields) can be added to an individual work order as they are needed. Field groups can contain multiple dynamic item fields. 

For example, you may create a field group for estimate line items, repair items, punchlist items, or equipment items.  Users can then easily add items with the click of a button.

1. Go to Admin>Templates. Select an existing template to add dynamic fields or create a brand new template. Navigate to the section in which you would like to create a field group, click on the ... icon and select "Add new field group".

5. The dynamic item fields will be added and available for users to complete. Please note field users will most likely be the ones completing this information on mobile (for fields that are not admin only or hidden from field user). View the iOS guide here. View the Android guide here.

You can delete an item by clicking on “Delete this item” at the bottom of the item.
