The anomaly will be selected at the start of the intervention as the main asset.
1. Drag and drop a Text widget in your form. Name the "Description of the anomaly"
2. Link this widget with the asset attribute named Description of the anomaly.
3. Check the options “Authorize editing in the application and“ Pre-fill the value in the application. ”Thus, the operator can see the previous value and modify it if necessary.
4. Publish the form.
5. Launch your form. At the start of the intervention, choose an anomaly that has a description.
6. Modify the description of this anomaly and complete the intervention.
7. Review the value of the Description attribute of this anomaly in your databases. The value entered in step 6 is now present.
