Dynamic values for naming forms, tasks and actions | More automation in the field

Dynamic values in naming forms and tasks, as well as customizing emails with completed forms are aimed to:

Dynamic values in Fluix Taskstreams allow you to automatically name the submitted documents, customize email recipients, subject and body of the email, based on the information your remote team enters into the forms while working in the app. Let’s explore these capabilities in a bit more detail. 

1) Automated document naming

Keep the document names consistent with the dynamic values. The field data is automatically pulled from the predefined fields in the form in order to name the document correctly upon the task completion. 

Steps from setup to end result:

1. Form naming pattern, configured in a recurring task in the admin portal:

Form Name and Performer name values were used to generate form names upon submission.

2. A form completed by a team member on the device:

The Performer Name field has been filled out.

3. The form with a proper name submitted to the cloud storage:

The submitted form contains two values: Form Name and Performer Name.

2) Customization of the Submit by email action

In addition, dynamic values can help you customize the emails that are sent out upon task completion. Hence, email recipients, subject, and email body can be created based on the recent data input made by a user in the related form on the device or web app. 

Flow from setup to the received email:

1. Configured Submit by Email action for the Timecard workflow

The Manager’s email and Performer’s email values are used to generate recipients’ emails. 

Form Name and Performer Name – values are used for the email subject. In addition, the list of values was added to the email text.

2. Timecard on the user device with entered manager’s email:

Email address mario.wanner@fluix.io was entered. 

3. An email received by the Manager:

For the convenience of your users, you may also set up dynamic values for naming the task on the user’s device upon its completion based on the values entered by the user in the form.

mario.wanner@fluix.io is the recipient, the subject of the email contains the form name and performer name, and finally, the email text contains all expected values.

3) Automated task naming 

Once the task is finished, a user will be able to easily distinguish it from the finished ones.

Setup steps

1) Automated form naming

1. Go to the preferred Taskstream in the admin portal and click on the task where you would like to customize form naming.

2. In the action details, click on the configuration icon:

4. Save changes.

5. To test the naming, add yourself to the Group of assignees in the Taskstream where you configured the naming, open the app either on a device, or the User app in the web, and complete the task.

2) Customized Submit by email action

A similar procedure applies to the customization of Submit by email action.

1. Click on the Submit by Email action in the Taskstream builder.

2. In the action details, click on the configuration icons next to Send to field, email Subject, email Text, and the form name after it will be completed by the user.

Conclusion

As you can see, dynamic values are very handy both for those who perform the job on-site, and managers who supervise the process. Dynamic values save time and cut off manual effort while tasks, submitted forms, and email data are being named and filled in an accurate manner without employee involvement.
