Version 1.3 of the Lucity Android phone application for Work Orders was released to Google Play yesterday. This release includes several bug fixes as well as two key enhancements: support for parts warehouse prompting and support for dynamic work defaulting.
Work Order materials or fluids requiring a location for parts automatically prompt the user when the record is saved. The prompt will provide a list of available locations and the parts available in each location. All of the standard Lucity business rules for warehousing apply to this phone application. If the system is configured to not show prompts for parts, or to automatically select a location for parts, no prompt will be displayed and the system will automatically handle the parts disbursal.
The new defaulting functionality for the Lucity Mobile Work for Android application will automatically fill in details such as supervisor or leadworker when a main task is selected. Previously this required the user to click the save button. Now the system will populate defaulted fields as the user is filling out the work order. This functionality is available on the main work order only.
This phone release is backwards compatible with all previous supported Lucity releases, but these new functions will only be available for clients running Lucity 7.50 SP1 or greater. To check for a new version of Lucity Mobile Work, open Google Play and select My Apps. Items that have a new version available will say “Update available.” To enable updates automatically, open the Lucity Mobile Work details page on Google Play on the device and check the box that says “Allow automatic updating.” To check what version of Lucity Mobile Work is currently installed on the device, open the Lucity Mobile Work application, click the menu button, and select “About”.
