This Smartapp Feature allows Users to add Supplemental Information related to Users, Companies, Projects & Project Locations. For any record created in Users, Companies, for a Project or in Project Locations, we do not have the option to add any supplemental/additional information for a new record being created or for existing records. This feature enables us to map a Smart App, which in turn can accommodate for saving Supplemental or Additional Information.


  • Admin should be able to link/map a specific Smart App in each section (Users, Companies, For a Project & in Project locations) and then add additional information for every smart item that gets created in the background. 


  • This feature enables to add supplemental information for users, companies, Projects and Project locations by configuring an app. The configured App creates a smart Item in the background for every record. User opens the respective item and add the additional information for that record.
