You want to collect more information in a certain mobile workflow than TrackAbout collects by default.

Perhaps you want to eliminate a paper form as part of a process and instead collect the same information electronically.


The Dynamic Forms Module allows extra data to be collected about assets, processes or procedures using the TrackAbout mobile apps. This greatly extends the capabilities of TrackAbout to track almost anything.

The name 'Dynamic Forms' is used because this extra data is collected on forms that are created dynamically, on-the-fly, from a set of instructions stored on the server.

This module is priced separately. Contact Sales for more information on pricing.

How it works

Today, the TrackAbout Support Team works with customers to design new dynamic forms or modify old ones.

Dynamic forms may be built to enhance or expand the following mobile actions:

  • Add New
  • Secondary AddNew
  • PreFill
  • Fill
  • Post Fill
  • Reclassify
  • Maintenance
  • Add Pack
  • Delivery
  • Collect Rental Info

An Example

This first image is of the two main mobile device forms in the Fill action. The first form sets the product code and lot number and the second form collects tracking numbers.


In this second image, three dynamic forms have been added. The dynamic forms are highlighted in red.
