Configure your iPhone
User: Enter the User Name and Password here.
Server: Enter the URL to Server and the Port.
Uses LDAP: Necessary when using LDAP (separately licensed, contact sales for more information).
Start as Kiosk: Enable this setting if a "kiosk" style workflow for a check-in/-out station on an iOS mobile device (iPad recommend) via Barcode or Object Browser is needed. For further information on how to use the iOS device with that setting enabled, please contact our support team.
Check For Kiosk Logins: This option is used if a “kiosk” style workflow with a check-in/-out station on an iOS mobile device (iPad recommended) via Barcode or Object Browser is required. This setting enables a mode on the iOS app where it asks the farmerswife server every two seconds for kiosk logins to update the views on the device.
Example: User comes down to the kit room, ask kit room staff member Chris to check out a lamp for him. Chris barcode scans the lamp and asks the User to enter his User ID or swipe his ID batch. On Chris’ iPhone, a pop up appears asking whether this ID is the User’s employee number who wants to check out the lamp. Chris approves. Check-Out is done and the User can take the lamp with him.
Uses External Keyboard: Set to “Yes” if a barcode scanner is attached to it. Use if you have an external keyboard attached for the User to login with their User employee number. Makes the app listen out for keyboard events at the User login pages for supporting RFDI systems.
Turn on Show Thumbnails at the bottom part of the setup window on the farmerswife setup page in the iOS to see thumbnail images in the iOS app when selecting/ scanning the Object.

Create a Dispatch in the iOS
Create a Check Out in iOS
To finalize a Check Out that had been created in the farmerswife client application and appears in the Pending list of the iOS, open the Check Out. Tab on the Items tab and start barcode scanning the equipment with the aScan or iScan or the camera. If no barcode scanner is used, it is necessary to enter the Edit mode first (right upper corner) to be able to set the equipment to Verified. Tab on the unverified items until a drop down with three options appear: Verify, Unverify, Ignore. Set the items to Verify. Once all equipment is set to Verified tab on the Done button and the Dispatch is set to Ready (Status). Enter the Edit mode again, to change the Status to Dispatched.
Tap on Check In > Items > select the equipment or barcode scan. It is not necessary to select a Project for the Check In, only if it needs to be tracked. The Check Out that the equipment was belonging to will be updated and show that this equipment has been returned.
