Field Apps

The Field Apps module allows Trimble Construction One customers to create low-code / no-code user-defined (UD) tables and forms on the web.

Users can collect data on any device with an internet connection and save that data to the UD tables and forms that they have been given access to via their Vista security setup.

Before you begin

The Field Apps module is available to Trimble Construction One customers only and requires the following setup in Vista and in the portal.

Note: Field Apps is for users who need access to UD forms on the web and who are not licensed Vista Web Office Tools users. Users who are licensed for Vista Web Office Tools will already have access to UD tables and forms in the web portal. See Vista Web Office Tools for more information.

In Vista:

  • Users must enable single sign-on (SSO) for their VP user name and log in to the portal using their Viewpoint ID single sign-on account. For help configuring a Viewpoint ID single sign-on account, see Configure Your SSO Account.

  • Users must be given access to the UD tables and forms (and attachments where applicable) that they intend to update through the Field Apps module. Access to tables and forms is based on the Security Groups assigned to the user's VA User Profile. For more information, see Data Level Security for Custom Tables and Forms and About Adding Users to Security Groups.

In the portal:

  • A system administrator must enable Field Apps for each applicable user. Enabling the Field Apps module for a user assigns a Field Management license to that user. Field Apps users are listed on the License Count Report (sheet 3). To generate this report, select Export License Report from the Portal Settings page (Admin > Portal Settings).
