Adding an attachment to a location or work order allows users to access diagrams, manuals, photos, or other documents when conducting an inspection or updating a work order on their mobile device. This feature saves time and removes the need to carry around extra paper documents. Users must ensure that their mobile device is equipped with the necessary apps to open attachments in different file formats. For example, a PDF attachment requires a PDF viewing app.
