Once your apps and data have been synced to your mobile device, you can begin to collect records. Collecting records is a straight forward procedure. In this section, we will show you how to create a new record, edit an existing record, and touch on a few of the advanced features and functions.
Creating a New Record
Creating a new record in Fulcrum is as simple as tapping on an icon and then entering in the data.
Each time a new record is created the record’s location is captured from the device’s GPS (This information could come from an external GPS that is paired to your mobile device). The location can also be set manually on both iOS and Android devices.
Additionally, the record also captures data for several other system fields such as the timestamp and the user that created the record. More information can be found in the system fields section
To create a new record tap on the create new record icon ( + ) in the lower-right corner of the screen.
Editing an Existing Record
To edit a record you must first locate the original record. This can best be done by using the search bar. If you know the record’s location you can also locate the record by finding it on the map view.
Searching for a record can be done from either the main map or list views. Additionally, using the filter functionality can also be helpful. To learn more about these features, please visit the iOS and Android parts of the mobile section of the online manual.
