Samsung Xcover The new update is poor and should have been extensively trialed before release. The app periodically stops working which in turn causes PTS staff to disappear after they have been logged in therefore not able to log staff out. Also shows staff not having enough rest requiring a risk assessment when they haven't been on track for more than 24hrs.
Keeps crashing and can't sign out Keeps crashing when using NFC and once logged in and the app crashes you cannot log people out. To log myself out I have to "start shift" and go through the location to allow me to sign out and do the same for each person. Takes a long time to add everyone's time for rest place, planned shift etc. Adds more responsibility to the Coss/swl that already have massive responsibility. Also adds yet more time on the signing in process. Locations need updating as not accurate and doesn't show REBs or FTN nodes
Absolutely terrible, this app crashes every time I have scanned people in, I then have to risk assess them the next night, as it thinks they have worked over 12 hours. Come on NWR, you are saying it is mandatory to scan in, so get this app working correctly!!
Why change something that ain't broke Joke they changed this can't use it
This app is useless, does not read any cards and crashes every time you try to use it
Samsung XCover user. NFC works only with the first person, subsequent sign in has to be using the QR code which frequently crashes the app. Location details are sorely lacking, why not use GPS? Cannot edit shift times once confirm button pressed, this is wrong and fields should be uneditable once safety briefing done only. There needs to be a Feedback button in app, to get direct to the devs. All in all, badly implemented, unintuitive, and with no user centered feedback system.
To support the roll-out of Site Access within the Sentinel scheme (see http://info.railsentinel.co.uk/ for more details), this update includes the following changes:
-Ability to select a location when swiping in card holders
-Ability to swipe out a card holder
-Ability to record a site induction
-Ability to record competence usage
-Enforcement of the 12 hour minimum rest rule
-Redesigned app to guide the user through the swipe-in journey
