With this feature, you are now able to assign a resolution to your tool's range within your "Tool Configuration" page.  A tool's resolution will automatically be applied to your measurement specifications and readings once selected in a work order.  The resolution will supersede any settings already configured after verification through a confirmation pop-up.

For a refresher on locating and setting your Tool Ranges please refer to our article: Indicate Tool Range Capabilities to Streamline Service

To begin, you will need to open your reference standard's "Tool Range" in the Tool Configuration page. Click on the "N/A" value in the Resolution column.

In the "Edit Tool Range/Mode" pop-up, enter in the appropriate value in the field named "Resolution".  For this example, we will be set the Resolution to ".0001", meaning any measurement taken with this tool having the capability to read to the fourth decimal point.

Click "OK" to save the value to you Tool Range table. 

Now that your tool has a Resolution set, this setting will impact the reading display on the fulfillment interface.  See below for an example: 

If you specification table in the Item Detail View has a decimal reading set to "0", then any readings will be rounded to that whole number

However, after selecting a Primary Tool with a configured resolution of ".0001", a pop-up will appear asking for confirmation to change the reading settings. 

By selecting "No", your measurements will remain with the decimal readings set in your specifications.

But by selecting "Yes", the measurements will now reflect the resolution setting.  

This measurement and specification formatting can still be changed through the "Edit specifications" page.
