Fundamentally, the Table Builder service type allows administrators to build a parent table (think of a “sheet” in Excel) and child table views where app users scan a barcode and answer data collection prompts (“Questions”) to create, edit and view as fields in each table view.
How does this differ from our standard Record Scans or Validate Scans service types?
- Persistent Question Answers: With those standard service types, only admins can view question answers as part of scan records. With Table Builder, assigned app-users can scan to see the current answers and optionally edit those answers.
- Tracking Barcode Values: In standard scanning services, scan records are viewed as individual, separate records whereas in Table Builder, scanned values are tracked persistently, as well. In this way, you can track a singular barcode through several phases (child services) of scans. In addition, a summary table is auto-generated for administrators to view and share.
