Patrol Report parameters to be completed:

Available to all Regions

Default Language

  • Select the language for the report form.

Support multiple languages

  • Allows the user to translate the report template in at least one other language, to make it easier for guards that speak different languages to fill out the reports on their mobile device. (The report will open in the “right” language based on the phone’s chosen language when initially set-up by the user if the translation is available in that language, if not it will open in the default language of the report template.

Approve Automatically

  • Reports need to be approved before they are made available in the client portal. 
  • Set certain report forms to approve automatically so they are immediately available to clients. 
  • This is common for maintenance reports or activity log entries.

For Admin Eyes Only

  • Keep reports internal, so available only to users in Admin portal.

Notify Alert Queue

  • Identify this report as an Important Report. 
  • Important Reports automatically trigger the Alerts/Important Reports notification when they are submitted.
