In Cartegraph, a task is a single activity on a single asset. When documenting the work you have completed, it often makes sense to individually complete each task and identify the resources used at the time you complete your work. In some cases, however, you are doing a lot of work at once—such as trimming all of the trees on a single street—and you are generally spending the same amount of time and resources for each asset. In those cases, we recommend you utilize the Distribute Resources functionality.
Additional Inspection Functionality
Two asset types have additional inspection functionality available to you.
Sign inspection functionality supports retroreflectivity readings.
When completing a Tree inspection, you also have the option to perform an appraisal.
Special Functions for Import
When importing records into Cartegraph, there are Special Functions available for certain field types. Learn more about these functions.
Creating an asset from the web browser provides you with the additional functionality to define asset relationships. There are two types of asset relationships: Linked Assets and Container Component Assets.
When the assets you selected where installed by Cartegraph, the applicable asset relationships were also established. If you are using an asset that has an established relationship with another asset, you can utilize this functionality.
