How to add a One-Key compatible tool

A One-Key compatible tool has to be synced with the mobile app before you can take advantage of its inherent tracking capability.

  1. Starting from the Inventory Dashboard, tap the “+” sign in the upper right hand corner of the screen.  Make sure the One-Key compatible tool you wish to add is nearby and that Bluetooth is activated on your mobile phone

  2. A menu of different kinds of items to add to your inventory will appear at the top of your screen, while your nearby ONE-KEY compatible tools and equipment will populate in the screen below this menu.

  • You can tap “Add” for any and all of the ONE-KEY compatible tools you’d like to add.
  • Add one item, or you add many items, all at once, for added convenience. After you tap the “Add” button beside each item, a green check mark will emerge, indicating the item has successfully been added to your inventory. At the top of the screen, as these items are added in, you’ll notice the number of items grow.

When you’ve finished adding items, you can tap “View items” to add more details to your items. Once here, you’ll see all of the items you’ve just added. You’ll notice that the item’s photo, description, model number, and serial number will be auto-populated for you.



    How to add your tool’s other important specs

    Before you finish, make sure you take a second to manually enter in the other important details about your tool: 

    • Category: Type of tool.

    • Person: Crew member your tool is assigned to.

    • Division: Team your tool is assigned to.

    • Place: Place your tool is assigned to.

    • Add Nearby TICK™: Add an external TICK Bluetooth tracker or equipment tracker.

    You can repeat this process for entering information for all of the items you’re adding all at once. Once you’ve filled your item’s details to your liking, tap “Done” in the upper righthand corner to save your item to your inventory. Your items will be added to inventory and be ready to send to the job.

    Now your One-Key tool is trackable and will appear in your inventory complete with photo, item description, model number, serial number, and other important specs.
