This document introduces the concept of PIN, describes the process of creating a PIN on a floor plan/map via application viewer and associating that PIN (which is essentially a location) with an equipment and/or a maintenance/inspection form of an equipment, within ARC FACILITIES (cloud).
A PIN is an object which is pinned to a specific location on a campus plan/map. The PIN contains a customizable icon (selected from a predefined list), a description, notes and links to other objects (equipment and/or forms). Objects that can be linked from a PIN are:
- Photos / Videos of equipment/location
- Documents (Linked files)
- PDF Forms
A PIN may link to multiple items. For example, two pictures and three equipment records, and two PDF reports. PINs can be created and edited from both the cloud and the device.
The viewer is the only place in both cloud and mobile devices to view and use pinning functionality in ARC FACILITIES.
Permissions are controlled by the standard permissions system. If a user has create/modify permission for the folder containing the PDF file, then the user has permission to create/modify PINs on those files. There are no other separate permissions or restrictions related to PINs.
