Understanding the Activity Logs

The Activity Log contains 2 distinct log views that can be toggled between using the options at the top of the screen:

  • The Photos tab contains only information related to photo uploads.

  • The Data tab contains all the information related to JSON jobs.

Each of these 2 logs contains a section for Active & Completed jobs. As jobs complete, they move from the Active section to the Completed section.

Please note that user activities within the app and the completion of some jobs may trigger additional jobs to be added to the queue automatically.


Job Activity Statuses

The status of every completed job performed by the mobile app will be assigned a color in the Network Activity Log for easy recognition:

Since there are a number of ways to trigger network jobs to run within the mobile app, it’s common for the app to attempt to start a job while an existing version of the job is already running. For example, unsynced images are queued for upload when first created, but also when an inspection is saved.

The app automatically detects and cancels attempts to queue an identical job to one that is already running.

Here's an example of a request that was cancelled because an active request was taking place (note the green and orange colors to the left of the log):
