- Orders over $5,000.00 submitted by customers
- Quotes that are still open for your top customers
- Photos taken at stores (in a cards view list with enlarge-able thumbnail images)
- A map view of the visits performed at stores by sales reps, with locations of the visits displayed as pins on the map based on geolocation at the time of the visit.

For example: all activities submitted during the past 2 weeks, or activities whose creation date is in the last month.

Configure the list Smart Search
The list can be filtered in the app and on the web by filtering by the relevant fields in its Smart Search. Each list has its own filtering fields.
Configure the Smart Search to include the fields you wish to filter the list by. For example you may want the list to be search-able by the Sales Rep that created the activities. In this case, ass "Sales Rep Name" to the Smart Search layout.
Configure the List Totals
A Totals box will appear at the top of each list. You can configure any numerical field to be totaled for all the listed Activities. For example, the Grand Total for all orders, or any custom field you have added for totals. Configure this field in the "Totals Box" layout.
You may also configure additional numerical fields to be totaled, including custom fields. Expanded totals are displayed on the webapp in the menu that is opened below the Total box, and on the mobile app in the footer of the Activity LIst. Configure these fields in the "Expanded Totals" layout.
Configure the Permissions (which profiles can view the lists)
Configure the lists that should be available for the profile. When viewing the Activities on the device or Web App the lists each profile has access to will be presented in the list selection for them to choose from.
Add Activities button to the Home Screen so users can access the lists
Users will access the list via the Activities button from their Home Screen (mobile app and WebApp).
Make sure that "Activity List" is added to the layout of the App Home Screen configuration. (for details on App Home Screen configuration: App Home Screen Configuration).
It's located in the "General" group of fields.
You may rename it to any label you wish. For example: "Reports", "View History", etc..
Add a specific Activity List as a shortcut from the Home Screen
You can also add a shortcut to a specific Activity List you have created from the Home Screen.
The Activity Lists are located in the "Activity Lists" group of fields.
When adding a specific list, it will be directly opened (without having to select it from the menu).
Audit Trail Log
Admin users can track the information that has been changed on customers, orders, forms or contacts, who made the changes, and when they were made.
Any fields that have been changed can be tracked in the Audit Log. Here are just a few examples:
- Address change on an Account
- Item quantity changed on an order
- Price change on an order
To access the log, select the object in the relevant list - Activity/Contacts/Account - and select "Audit Log" from the menu.
The fields that were changed, the user who made the changes, and the date and time the changes were made will be displayed in the log.
*Coming soon - export log to Excel
Status History and Change Status
Track the status changes an Order/Activity goes through as it proceeds in the Workflow. Select an Activity and select "Status History" from the menu.
For each change you will see the status, the information of the user who changed the status and the client that the user made this change from (iPad, Android, Web Admin, etc.).
The order below was created and submitted by the rep, and then revised and re-submitted by the admin:
Change status allows you to manually change the status of an Activity/Transaction. Note that status changes in the Activity List will not trigger any Activity or Transaction Workflow actions associated with this status change.
For example, if your Workflow runs a Webhook when the order status changes from In Creation to Submitted, and you change the status to Submitted via the Activity List, it won't run the Webhook. However, if you open the order and click on the Submit button the Workflow actions for this status change will be triggered.
