Introduction To SenseHawk Work
SenseHawk Work is a one-of-a-kind map-based productivity and task management tool. It allows users to create tasks, attach files, and fill out forms associated with elements on the site map. Using the digital twin of the solar plant present in SenseHawk core, users will be able to create complex workflows involving actual components of the solar plant. Some of the tools and their use cases are shown below:
SenseHawk Work allows you to create tasks directly on the map and associate them with components on the Digital Twin of the solar plant. For instance, EPC teams performing multipoint QC checks can create complex checklists and attach them to individual components on the solar farm.

USING TASKS ASSIGNED TO INDIVIDUAL TRACKER ROWS
FIGURE 2: QC TASKS LISTS CAN BE ASSIGNED TO ONE OR MORE TEAMS ON THE FIELD; CHECKLISTS, ONCE COMPLETED, CAN BE EXPORTED TO EXCEL, ELIMINATING THE NEED FOR PAPER FORMS
Users on the field can also create ad-hoc tasks while walking around the site. For example, a user may notice a broken module on the site, take a photograph using a mobile phone, and create a task alerting the supervisor of the defect, which can be viewed on the desktop application.

Task information can be analyzed on SenseHawk Work's reporting dashboards or easily exported into Excel for further analysis. This is particularly useful in the case of punch lists and QC activities where a large number of tasks need to be tracked.

Creating Tasks on Maps
1. On the organization Home page, click on the desired asset
2. With the digital twin in place, users can assign tasks and checklists anywhere on the map. When the digital map or the terrain view of the site opens, click on 'Create Task' and then click anywhere on the map.'
3. In the Task dialog box, enter the task name, preferably denoting the issue raised to address or with any keywords that capture the issue statement's essence.
4. Choose a category from the drop-down and click on 'Create', and your task will be successfully raised.
Adding details to a raised task
1. Clicking on 'Create' will open a maximized/detailed task view.
2. Add tag(s) to the task to classify it under a particular category. Keeping track of all the tasks with the same tag enables seamless workflow management by monitoring a defined sequence of issues arranged under a single roof.
Note: To add more tags, type in the tag name and hit enter.
3. Fill up each of the enlisted options in the task to make it functional:
You can choose to assign specific tasks rights to your organization's members.
Note: The assignee can be a single user, multiple users, or a team.
You can prioritize a task to critical, high, medium, or low. Priorities can provide actionable operational insights to any problem-solving. A task's priority can be changed anytime.
Add a description of the entire task.
Attach files from the local device or cloud services like Google Drive/ Dropbox.
This contains the entire log of activities or actions performed on the task.
Large checklists can be attached to tasks allowing complex tasks to be easily broken down and managed on the field. A task allows indefinite nesting or multiple checklists to be incorporated.
- To create a checklist within a task. Click on 'New Checklist' and enter any number of checklist items.
- Each item within a checklist can have an assignee. Generally, when filtering through a big project with many people remotely, small tasks can slip through. Assigning one individual to each item keeps them liable and prevents one from being overwhelmed to complete everything at once. This further increases the visibility and, importantly, self-accountability for who is doing what and when.
- Click on the ellipses for more options within an item in the checklist to rename, add sub-item, add notes, attach files, and delete the item entirely.
- Once the checklist is ready, click on the ellipses. You can save this checklist as a template that can be loaded directly in tasks raised later in time.
Every project requires a set of periodic tasks to be performed repeatedly at equal or unequal time intervals. The one-click automatic scheduling feature helps create a periodic activity schedule.
- Within a task, click on 'Set Schedule'.
- Select the dates you want the maintenance activities to repeat (week, month, or year). For instance, if an activity is to be performed on the 3rd, 14th, and 24th of every month, choose 'Monthly' from the frequency drop-down and select the respective dates.
- Suppose a certain activity doesn't have an end of life. Check the 'Repeat Forever' radio button.
- Click on 'Save', and your activity will be scheduled.
Once a task has been raised, the assignee's job is to resolve the issue or complete the said task. They might need to gather more information from the requester. To communicate with the requester, you add comments which can be read by anyone who has access to the task. to do that
- Scroll down to the comments section.
- To start a 'Conversation', type in your remarks. Use '@' to tag anyone within the organization and direct conversation with them. The individual tagged will be notified via email.
- With rich text formatting enabled for the task's comments, you can further attach images and add links and emojis.
- To enter the comment, click on the send icon on the bottom right corner of the comment box.
- Once the comment is added, the task assignee, the composer, and any member tagged in the comments are notified via email (unless the notification trigger is disabled).
- If anyone responds to the email notification or comments on the task, their responses are added as a comment to the task.
Tasks also can be saved and loaded from templates to serve as a module for future tasks. An entire new task can be created from these templates.
- Click on the Settings/gear icon on the top-right corner of the task.
- Select 'Save as Template', the following window pops open:
- You can select the sharability depending on whether or not you want the template to be visible to others. You can further choose to have every particular task included in the template or select the specific features you want to be preserved and retained for the future use of a similar task.
Creating Tasks With Template:
With these templates, easily create tasks. Read below the process for creating tasks from templates
- Like creating a new task, click anywhere on the map and 'Create Task'.
- Enter the task name, choose a category from the drop-down, and click 'Create using task template'.

- Clicking on the status drop-down button, the task's current status can be modified based on whether the task is 'Pending', 'In-progress', 'Resolved', 'Closed', or 'Rejected'.
- Click on the 'Watch' button on the top-right corner of the task, and the added user can keep an eye on every activity being performed against it in real-time.
Bulk Creation of Tasks
Besides templates, the tasks application supports bulk tasks based on the vector attribute, particularly when doing component QC (either 100% or sampled), and is a faster method for the site managers or technicians to raise numerous tasks.
Please follow the below process to perform bulk creation of tasks.
- In the map view, click on the filter icon.
- Select the property type and the value depending on where the problem exists. Click on 'Apply'.
- As the vectors on the map are made visible, select them all and click on 'Create task'.
- To create bulk tasks, enter the task name, choose a category and click on the check box 'Create using task template'.
- The tasks are created for the selected vectors on the map.
Note: Selection of vectors can also be done by holding the 'Shift Key' + Selecting the individual vectors on map or by holding the 'Shift Key' + dragging the pointer and selecting the vectors.
The dashboard or tasks application provides an at-a-glance view of the summary of the tasks and all the tasks raised. Based on your permission, conveniently, access raised tasks, perform actions, use advanced sorting or filtering to shortlist the tasks list. The tasks application also gives you the Kanban view and the calendar view to view and perform actions.
