The tool kitting feature in One-Key lets you group miscellaneous tools and equipment you’re sending to the job in your gang box, all at once.
Tooling up a job and keeping track of everything can be a challenging undertaking, especially those easy to misplace smaller items. You might already be clumping a lot of miscellaneous tools and equipment into a job box—all needed to accomplish a day’s work but easily misplaced in the chaos of an active building site. The tool kitting feature in One-Key now lets you group these like items that you’re sending to the job. That way, everything is in one place, easily findable, and accounted for in the app.
Let’s show you how to use it.
Get Started on the iOS App
- Launch the app on your mobile device. Your inventory will load by default.
- You’ll now see an option to display either “Inventory” or “Kits.” Tap “Kits” to get started.
- This is where your kits will live once you’ve built them. To add a new kit, tap “Create a kit.”
Create Your Kit
- To create your new kit, first number your kit. This step is required and can help for easier finding in One-Key later.
- You have the option to enter this number in manually or scan a barcode or One-Key asset ID tag if you have one that you’d like to add to this kit.
Next, give your kit a name (also required) and choose the project or job you’re sending it to. Then, tap “Save & Add Items” to start preparing this kit for the job. You can also select "Save and Close" if you'd rather add items to this kit later.
You can add items to your kit by scanning their barcode or tag if you’re using them, or you can type the name or model number into the search bar.
- Continue this process until you’ve added all the items you want to add to this kit.
When you’re satisfied, tap Save.
Your kit now will display when you launch your inventory and select the “Kit” menu.
- Tap into your kit to manage it.
You can inspect each of your kits to see what’s on hand.
If you need rename, edit, or delete this kit, tap on the kit icon at the top of your screen. Here, you'll be able to change your kit’s assigned number or barcode, change its name, or delete it if necessary.
- You can change what's in your kit by tapping into “Change items” to add or subtract items to this kit from your inventory.
You can transfer this kit to another job where it might be needed. To do this, tap the “Transfer" button.
- Just select where it’s going. Assign a person, to add accountability. Assign a division to describe the type of work this kit is intended for. Change the status of this kit to reflect that it’s ready for the job or already being used.
When you’re done, tap Transfer.
You can get a copy of this transfer and print it off or attach it to a team member to verify your tools have been sent.
- You can also make use of the tool kit audit feature. Tap 'Audit.'
- This feature allows you to support accountability in your company by checking in your kit and its contents in real time as it arrives on the job, or at the end of the day or the end of a project to ensure what you started with is what you've ended with.
- Confirm what you have on hand by selecting each item individually. If something that's supposed to be in the kit isn't there, leave it unchecked. You can then send this audit back to the tool team to iron out any discrepancies.
Finally, if this kit is no longer in use, you can select “Disassemble.” Your tools will be added back to inventory as unassigned.
Your kit has been disassembled and your items are ready to be reassigned.
With the tool kit feature in One-Key, keeping track of groups of tools and equipment on the job is simpler, allowing you to group the items you're sending in bulk in a gang box or job box.
