Work In Progress (WIP) is a feature on the platform that enables you to accurately track processes as they move from one phase to another. The status of the processes can be updated by scanning barcodes or NFC Tags.


There are two initial steps to set up WIP tracking.

The first one is for customizing the WIP setup Data Capture fields, for collecting the WIP details.

The second one is for customizing the WIP Status Data Capture fields.

Note – some fields are required to preserve the functionality of the app.

Creating WIP records

Once both are set up, go to the Work In Progress page. On that page, you can add the WIP details individually by filling in a form.

The table on that Work In Progress page will show the WIP records that have been set up.

Under the Action menu of a record, there are options to update WIP status, view reports, etc.

Updating WIP status

To update the status, go to the WIP Status option. On the new page, click on the Add Manually button, then fill out the form.

To update the status from the smartphone app, tap on Update WIP Status.

If you are using barcodes or NFC tags, you can scan them. Alternatively, you can also such for the WIP to update, then fill out the form based on your custom fields settings.

Creating and updating WIP records via Automated Workflows

Using Zapier, you can automate how WIP records are added to your account. For example, you could edit a Google Sheet row, and have the data on that row automatically used to create a new WIP record or update a WIP status.

You first need to set up a Zap trigger.

After that, choose the app Ventipix Asset & Inventory Manager, and the action Create Work In Progress or Create Work In Progress Status.

Click on Continue, then authenticate your account.

In the step that follows, map data from your Zap trigger on to the fields that you want to populate automatically.

Proceed to then test the integration, and turn the Zap on.
