This means you no longer have to see data fields you don’t use when
updating asset information. By hiding unused fields, you now have
complete control over how you customize GoCodes for your organization.
This power new feature can be quickly configured in the settings area
based on your unique needs.
We recommend that customers combine this new feature with the
addition of custom data-fields and custom pick lists to quickly create
custom asset management screens that are tailored precisely to your
needs. Say for example, you don’t need to track warranty data and
service records in your application. Just hide those fields and you will
no longer see them. Change your mind? No, problem. In a few clicks
those fields can be made visible again.
To make usage as simple as possible, there’s a new option on the
Update Asset screen that allows you to temporarily see the hidden data
fields and make updates. That way you can always check on what
information is stored for each asset.
Another powerful application for this feature is speeding up
repetitive tasks like annual inventory updates. Simply choose to
temporarily hide all fields expect those that are needed to complete the
inventory check. Then your users will be able to complete data entry
tasks quicker than ever since they are only presented with the few data
fields they need to use. What’s more data quality is enhanced as well
since there’s less chance of manual error. Once the inventory check is
complete, just re-enable all the data fields you normally use.
