The majority of sampling jobs in DecipherAg Mobile will be created in the web portal then assigned to the sampler. However you can start an adhoc job for an existing or a new client, whether you are on or offline.

  • On the Collect screen, tap on + New sampling job. You'll be taken to the Organisation list.
  • Organisation - The organisation list shows all organisations with which you currently have a relationship. You may an owner, admin, user or account manager, or you may have sampled for them previously. Select the business that you are sampling for, then tap on Next in the top right. If the organisation is is not in the list, tap on Create new at the bottom of the screen. 
  • Job Name - the job name will default to the Organisation name and the date. You can edit that to anything you like. Once you're happy with the job name, tap on Next in the top right.
  • Sample Type - tap on Soil or Plant, then tap Next in the top right.
  • Sample Tests - For labs that are fully integrated with Decipher you'll get a list of their test suites. Tap on the required test package. You can add additional tests to the package by tapping on + Add extra. For labs that are not integrated, you'll get free text boxes to enter the required tests. Once you've entered the Sample tests, tap on Next in the top right.
  • Job Summary -  lists what you've selected so far. To go back and edit something, tap on the back button '<' in the top left. You add additional instructions for the lab by clicking on + Note to the laboratory. Create and save the job by tapping the Save and add site button.
  • Add a new site - when you tap the Add Site button in the top right a marker will appear in the centre of the visible map. It is recommended that immediately before adding your first site you centre the map on yourself by tapping the cross-hairs icon in the bottom right. Then tap Add Site, which will place the marker directly on your location. You can relocate the Add Site marker by moving the map underneath it. When you've got the location correct, tap Done in the top left. Name your new site then tap Done. An orange pin will be placed for your site.
  • The sampling process for an adhoc job is the same as for a planned job that has been assigned to you. More details on this process can be found here
  • Add additional Depths by tapping + Sampling task. You can edit the depth of a task by swiping the task to the left and tapping Edit
  • If the job requires paddock information to be entered, you'll need to do that for each site by clicking + Paddock Information.
  • Once all the depths for a site have been sampled, and all the required information entered, complete the site by tapping on Finish in the top right of the Sample Site card. The pin for the site should turn Green.
  • Submission - Submit your job, or part of a job, by tapping the Submit to laboratory button on the Job Details card. You can partially submit your job at anytime, which will queue details of any sites that you've already finished but not yet submitted to be sent to the lab. If you have a signal the details will be submitted immediately. If you're offline they'll be placed in a pending state and sent when you're back online.  More details on submitting jobs while offline can be found here. Once you've finished the sampling job you'll need to submit any remaining sites.
