You can use checklists to create to-do lists in the field or efficiently prepare work from the office. Each checklist item can contain either text or tag links to have easy access to tag information in the field. You can see the checklist items both in 3D and in interactive P&IDs if they are available. The checklists can be based on
- objects imported from your work management application, such as SAP or WorkMate. This gives efficient access to information about all of the inserted tags in the field. Read more in this article.
- templates predefined with items to be done during a shift. This is especially useful for daily, weekly, or monthly routine rounds on installations. Read more in this article.
- manually created to keep track of your own to-dos. Read more in this article.

# Use checklists
Set a status on your checklist item as you complete the assigned work tasks. Depending on the checklist setup, there can be several different states available for a checklist. To do and OK are always included as states.
- If you use InField on a desktop, press and hold the checklist state button to mark a checklist item as OK. Repeat the action to clear the state. Hover the mouse pointer above the state to bring up the status list.
- If you use InField on a mobile unit, press and hold the checklist state button to mark a checklist item as OK. Repeat the action to clear the state. Click the checklist state button once to bring up the status list.
If tag IDs are added to an item, click these to navigate to the Overview page where you'll find more information about the tag.
# Edit checklists
You can edit manually created checklists. Click Rename under More options (...) to edit the checklist name. You can also add items to the checklist with the Add items button and delete items using the Delete item option on each row.
You cannot edit checklists based on templates. However, with the correct access rights, you can edit the template the checklist is based on. Open the template, then click Edit to change checklist items or Template settings to change the overall template.
You cannot edit checklists based on work orders.
# Share checklists
You can share checklists with others to let several users complete the list of tasks together, or allow senior technicians / work leaders to prepare tasks for their teams. All team members can keep track of which tasks have been completed.
For some tasks it can be useful to add more states to a shared checklist (see above for how to do this), so the whole team can keep track of who has started which task. It can also be used to keep track of which task has been completed in field, but has not yet been documented.
# Group checklist items by area
# Work with checklists in offline mode
You can use checklists without a network connection on a mobile device. Select Offline mode on the More options button (...) on the Checklist page while still on a network to enable this functionality. Note that the checklist will only be available on the device you download from.
Checklists in offline mode display small 3D models, the last added trend value, properties, and the document categories you select during the download process. Work orders and images are not available in offline mode.
The changes you make while in offline mode are synchronized when the device is reconnected to a network. Note that you can hide the page with the changes while in offline mode, but no changes are kept if you close the page or the browser with InField.
# Archive/restore checklists
You can archive checklists that are not in use. Select View All Checklists in the dropdown menu to browse, restore or permanently remove open or archived checklists.
# See checklist items in 3D
On the mobile, you can select the checklist button at the bottom of the screen to see other checklist items in your immediate surroundings. InField searches for items in your checklist within the currently visible area in the 3D model. You can quickly check off or comment on items directly from the 3D view, without having to go back to the checklist page.
