The Report tool allows Responder users to gather and submit information relevant to the mission, using a predetermined and optimized format. When a report is submitted, it is saved as part of the mission and made available to other mission members through the mission map.

Reports can be submitted independently or as part of a task. A report can include notes and images. Once submitted, a report appears on the mission map as a point, which can be tapped to open a read-only version of the report.

There are two types of reports that can be submitted: mission reports and sensor reports. Mission reports can feature a number of fields for submitting information in a variety of ways, requiring that the user gather and organize that information into the report form before submitting it. Sensor reports are configured to submit information automatically and do not have fields that the user can interact with. They are submitted when the user triggers a piece of third-party hardware.

Information about interactions with third-party hardware, as well as options for connecting and disconnecting new devices, are displayed in the Responder Settings.

View and submit a mission report

A mission report may have multiple fields available for editing. All report fields are editable up until the time that the report is submitted, after which the report cannot be accessed by anyone except in read-only mode. To submit a mission report, complete the following steps:

  1. Navigate to the mission map screen.
  2. Tap Reports to display the list of available reports.

    Mission Reports are displayed by default.

  3. Locate the report you want to submit in the list and tap the Submit Report icon.

    A dialog box appears with report location options.

  4. Tap one of the following:
    • Define Custom Report Location—Choosing this requires you to place a pin on the mission map where the report will be located.
    • Use Device Location—Your report will be placed at the point on the map that your device is currently reporting for its location.

    Once you have chosen a location for your report, the report template will open so that you can enter your information.

  5. Fill in any required fields in the report form.

    It is recommended that you complete all fields available, to provide the greatest amount of information, but this may not always be possible. Required fields must have some data entered before the Submit Report button becomes available.

  6. Tap Submit Report.

If you have completed the report form correctly before tapping Submit Report, you will receive a message stating that the report was submitted successfully. Otherwise, you will receive an error message and can attempt to submit the report again.

View and submit a sensor report

The sensor report submission process is much more optimized than the process for submitting a mission report, but it does require that the hardware integration has been completed. To view sensor reports in ArcGIS Mission Responder, complete the following steps:

  1. Navigate to the mission map screen.
  2. Tap Reports.
  3. Tap the Sensor Reports subtab.

Sensor reports are organized by the device that triggers them. This means that each integrated device will have its own header with the device name. There is also an information button in the header that gives the user information about the device and lists the available actions.

The available sensor reports for each device are listed under the device header with their associated device actions. To submit a sensor report, perform the device action on the piece of third-party hardware, and the associated report will be submitted.
