Dear team Need to have an App for Inspection...

Dear team

Need to have an App for Inspection process, contains no. of questions. For each questions, there must be multiple findings, each finding should have photo, one more field to be filled by maintenance team.

I know by having two tables one for master inspection and another one for all observations. but that one is not practicable. The inspection team should give their findings question by question.

Any ideas please?

No Mr. Mark… that’s the problem actually. The tasks should be as rows.

(Mark Tuckey) #3

Sorry then I can’t help you. As what it seems you are trying to do is not really possible to my logic.

To me a row needs to be unique to every other row like a customer or the item that needs maintenance.

Columns to me are all the possible situations/tasks that the unique item/job/customer could need.

If your app won’t work in this manner I wish you good luck in finding a solution, sorry I couldn’t have been any help.

Thanks for your efforts

(John Henry Joseph) #5

Still I am looking for a solution…

@Aleksi_Alkio Can you help me out in this regard please…

So… we just have done something similar for a client who inspects buildings for fire safety.

The format we have for him is the main table is Job, and the subtable is Defects.

We’ve done it this way because no one knows how many defects there might be on each job.

Each defect contains about 10 bits of information he can add such as

[Question] [Location]

[Pic 1] [Pic 2] [Pic 3] etc

In his case Location pulled from a list of known locations for this job.

Question is pulled from a list of 100 questions in another table because he needs to ensure he has answered all questions even if its just to say everything is fine.

Hope this helps

@Simon_Robinson Great Mr. Simon. This is what i have been looking for. But tell me one thing. As you said, the questions are pulled from another table, how its designed. Whether inspector has to choose from drop down button? or how? how do we ensure they filled all questions? Please…

(Simon Robinson) #9

So the questions are just a column in another table.

You just put TableName[ColumnName] in the Valid_If box to get a list to choose from.

To ensure they are all filled we simply list the questions completed in order of question number.

So if 26 is missing, you can see it.

(Simon Robinson) #10

So if you’re doing it that way, you can’t have a valid if in respect to adding rows.

What you can do though would be to create a UX rule to colour all the rows in red for example if a particular job didn’t have all questions answered

Misunderstood. let see stop by step. 1. One table having list of questions for different type of equipment (Question Table) 2. Another table for Inspection header (date, which equipment, inspector, place etc.,) 3. Another table for inspection for the above “inspection header”. Here i can show the questions that match for that equipment type. 4. Another table for observations for the above “Question” if not ok. Now the problem is

  • Step no. 3, i want to show the list of questions which is not attended for this inspection. that will be easy for inspector. Hope you understand my problem.

@Simon_Robinson Please see the data structure. Inspection Template - list of questions for different equipment type Inspection Header - master record for each inspection Inspection Checklist - shows questions for the above inspection Observations - tasks to be created if any problem in that particular question / checkpoint.

(Simon Robinson) #13

Ok, do you ever need to select the same question from Inspection Template twice?

Or is it ever only the same question once per Inspection Header?

(John Henry Joseph) #14

@Simon_Robinson the question should be selected one time only for each inspection.

(Simon Robinson) #15

I’d create a valid_if as I described above but one where it only lists questions you’ve not already recorded.

Something like this in ‘Inspection Checklist[Question]’:

Select(Inspection Template[Question],IN([Question],Select(Inspection Checklist[Question],[Inspection Header ID]=[_ThisRow].[Inspection Header ID])))

Assumes you have a column called ‘Inspection Checklist[Inspection Header ID]’ which is your key column got that table.

Let me know if you need this breaking down :wink:

(Simon Robinson) #16

In fact we needed a NOT in here:

Select(Inspection Template[Question],NOT(IN([Question],Select(Inspection Checklist[Question],[Inspection Header ID]=[_ThisRow].[Inspection Header ID]))))

(John Henry Joseph) #17

@Simon_Robinson Got a error message as "Unable to find table “IN”…

(John Henry Joseph) #18

@Simon_Robinson This is my original expression … SELECT(INSPECTION TEMPLATE[Checkpoint], NOT(IN[Checkpoint], SELECT(INSPECTION CHECKLIST[Checkpoint], [Inspection Code] = [_THISROW].[Inspection Code])))

(John Henry Joseph) #19

@Simon_Robinson Dear Mr. Simon… Your expression is working great… its my fault that i missed “(” nearby “IN” operator. Thanks lot Mr. Simon for your great timely help.

(John Henry Joseph) #20

@Simon_Robinson One more advise please. If one checkpoint is not ok, the user should update the deficiencies found in another child table. How system gives alert if checkpoint is “NOTOK” but without any deficiencies and try to save the record?

Can you please advise me?
