- Expand the Checkpoints menu and select Add New Checkpoint
Add a Checkpoint Name: The field name entered here is only seen and used to identify the name of the Checkpoint you are adding to the Checkpoint List under the Property Details area.
Checkpoint Location: The location field is used to locate or mark the location of where the QR Code tag is located or intended to be scanned.
QR Code Value: This field is designated for entering the QR Code value to match the printed 2D bar codes in Silvertrac. As you enter the QR Code Value the image on the right side of the screen will change accordingly.Once you have entered the QR Value you will be able to right click on the QR code and click "Save Image".
IMPORTANT: When creating or adding QR Code Values, it is highly recommended to minimize the amount of characters to at least 10 or less if possible. When a large amount of value characters is used, the scanning process is slowed as the bar code reader in the device may experience difficulty reading the bar code.
Select a Property Address: This field allows an existing address to be selected.
Select a Checkpoint Unit (optional): This field allows all entered Unit numbers to be selected. The selected Unit number will auto-generate in all system reports and the Issue Details screen via the Issue Monitor upon scan.
Checkpoint Last Hit: When adding a new checkpoint this field will remain blank. However, if you are editing a checkpoint, you will see the date and time in which this checkpoint was last scanned. You may also view the Checkpoint Summary to verify multiple checkpoint hits by clicking on this button in the bottom left corner of the Issue Monitor.
- Select a Checkpoint Issue Type: In this field you must select a Security Issue type from the system list, as it will apply to the checkpoint name you will be adding below in the next field.
NOTE: The Security Issue Type selected is EXACTLY how it will appear in the Issue Monitor.
Checkpoint Notes: This area is designated for detailed information to be added related to the duties or tasks to be completed.
NOTE: All information entered here will NOT be seen by the handheld user, but WILL auto populate to all system generated reports and the Reported Detail area within the Issue Details screen accessed via the Issue Monitor.Example: The North door located at 34484 Morris Street Garage Level 1 has been checked and is securely locked. No signs of tampering or recent use. All issues have been reported under the appropriate issue type.
Checkpoint Instructions: This area is designated for information to be relayed to the handheld user at the moment the QR Code tag is scanned and will appear in a window for the handheld user to view. This could include a set of instructions of what is required next or what needs to be completed next if a problem is encountered during a routine scan.Example: Make sure this door is secure at all times. Report and document with photos, audio and notes under a standard security issue type labeled “Door Unsecured” if this door is discovered open. Also contact management personnel immediately.
- Additional Options:
Is Active: This check box allows the created checkpoint to be turned on or off at anytime without having to delete the checkpoint.
Allow Keep Open: Checking this box will allow your officers in the field to make edits to the reported details after scanning the QR code. The issue will be treated as an open issue and may be closed at any time.
Require Photo: Checking this box will launch the camera, once the checkpoint instructions have been read, and will require a photo to be added to the checkpoint before the issue is submitted.
The Require Photo is an optional feature which requires the checkpoint to require a photo to be taken when a checkpoint is scanned. Upon scanning the QR code, the device camera will launch prompting the user to take a photo.
Report if Missed: Checking this box will include this QR code in the "missed checkpoints" report that is sent out daily.
Add/Save Checkpoint: After completing all of the previous steps press Add/Save Checkpoint to add the checkpoint to the property.
