Use of FieldTeq Remote
Users with the Activity Plan Coordinator role can install FieldTeq Remote from within the FieldTeq web application and then download plans.
Once downloaded, the coordinator can edit the Post Activity Record and save changes. After adding all the relevant data, the coordinator can sync changes back to the database.
To download a plan and sync a record, FieldTeq Remote must be connected to a network that can access the FieldTeq web application. Records can be updated in the off-line mode but cannot be synchronised to the database.
