MxMobile Update March 2022 Release

A3J Group is #AlwaysInnovating in order to bring state-of-the-art enhancements to the IBM Maximo community. Our 20+ years of experience in Maximo allows us to deliver end users the proper support and solutions needed to maximize efficiency. We strive to remain thought leaders in the community and we face common issues and challenges head-on. Our suite of mobile apps for IBM Maximo, MxMobile, gives users access to IBM Maximo from their mobile device. Our apps allow Maximo users the ability to create and edit work orders, generate meter readings, manage inventory and more.

As an IBM Maximo mobile solution provider, A3J Group consistently improves the functionality and features of MxMobile. Enriching the experience of MxMobile users is not only our passion, but necessary. Our users enjoy the freedom of Maximo mobility and are happy to report bugs and request interface features, and our team actively delivers on those requests. You can download MxMobile apps from the Apple App or Google Play store and enjoy a 30-day trial.

Here are the improvements that the A3J Group developers have made to MxMobile as of March 7, 2022:

MxWork:

  • Added logic that will auto-route to the login page with a toast message if the LTPA or CSRF error messages occur. Previously, some users would get force logged out of the app due to a session timeout in IBM Maximo, but the mobile app would not notify the user indicating this was the cause for the force logout. Now, users will be informed how to remedy their IBM Maximo session to resolve the issue.
  • Created a “Costs” tab within the details page of a work order with basic planned and actual information
    • Page is configurable
  • Improved the labor submission feature such that fields are configurable, not hard coded. When entering labor time, user can now input a start and end time, rather than a single number of hours worked. This improves labor time accuracy for work orders.
  • Bug fix for labor time submissions: In previous version(s), if a user input labor time then pressed the “Enter” button on their keyboard to submit the record, the labor time record would be submitted twice. This issue is resolved.
  • Priority code bug fix: in previous version(s), if a priority code look-up is categorized as value “0” in the Work Order Priority field then the priority code would not register. This has been resolved in the new update.

MxCount:

  • Upgraded to latest version of Ionic Framework
  • Bug fix for Offline mode: If a user generates a list of items to operate MxCount in Offline mode then uses the barcode scanner feature to query an item lookup, the initial list would be superseded by the item that was scanned in. In that instance, the list of items that was generated for offline use would no longer be accessible. With this update, users are now able to create their offline list, and query their offline list using the barcode scan feature without losing access to their generated list for offline mode.

Product Launch: Automated Label Printing from NinjaFix

The A3J Label Printing report solution includes a report and an automated process to print labels as items
and materials are received. The printer used by the storeroom is defined on the storeroom record. If only
a single printer is used across all storerooms, then the automation script may be adjusted to use a system
property.

The goal of the automation is to proactively notify warehouse personnel when an item or material is
received through a printed label report. The label report should contain information about the received
item or material with bar-coded fields to enable scanning. The labels can automatically be fixed to parts
(materials) that are received.

The report that prints at the storeroom will have all the information that the warehouse operations staff
will need to fulfill the request. It will also have bar codes for key fields that will enable mobile applications
to quickly scan and perform inventory transactions against the reservation. A3J recommends pairing this
report solution with its own suite of mobile applications called MxMobile.

This solution includes a report built and tested to work with a Zebra printer. Specifically, a Zebra 410 and
520 portable printers but should work with any label printer that supports a 4.09”x2.00” format.

The report label is built to print the following fields:

• Item number (with barcode)
• Item description
• Purchase Order number (with barcode)
• Purchase Order line number
• Bin number if received into a bin
• Quantity at receipt (custom field included in solution)
• Work Order number (with barcode)

If either item number or work order number fields are blank the label rows will be blank saving space for
additional information. To purchase click here!

MxMobile: Using Saved Queries with A3J Group’s Mobile Apps for IBM Maximo

As we all know, saved queries can make our workload much easier to manage when you’re having to sort through hundreds of records in Maximo.  However, have you ever created a saved query in Maximo and you weren’t able to find that query on one of A3J Group’s mobile apps?  You’re not alone, it’s happened to me too and the solution is very simple to follow.

 

For this example, I will use MxWork as the mobile app. In Maximo, I created a query on the Work Order Tracking application called “Environmental Group WOs” that displays all of the work orders with a person group of “ENV” and with a status of “APPR” and “INPRG”.

 

saved queries MxMobile IBM Maximo Mobile App

 

When I save this query and log into the MxWork mobile application and navigate to the Saved Queries list, I won’t see this query.  Why is that?  Well, the saved query has to be available in the API in order to access it from the mobile apps.  So, with the addition of Query Definitions in Maximo 7.6.0.3, we can select the query in the Object Structure for that specific application which will then allow the query to be accessible from the API.

 

If you open the details of the Object Structure, in this example we’re looking at MXWODETAIL, you’ll see Query Definitions listed under More Actions.  This is where you will add your query.  If you do not see your query in the lookup, you may need to make your query public by accessing View/Manage Queries and checking the box underneath Public.  Below are the three fields that are required:

  • Query Type: appclause
  • App Name: WOTRACK
  • Query Clause Name: Environmental Group WOs

After I click OK and reload the Saved Queries list in MxWork, I now see the Environmental Group WOs query.  What’s also great about this solution is that the same process applies to all of A3J Group’s mobile apps!
