Based on frequent questions to the ELIAS Support Team please find our Top 10 hints and tips that you may find useful when accessing and using the ELIAS Inspections application.

  1. You will need a data connection e.g., Wi-Fi, 4 or 5G to be able to login. You cannot login to ELIAS without an internet connection. See the article Getting Started with ELIAS Inspections.
  2. Before going to the site, login and activate the facilities you are working on. This will make things easier should there be no data connection available on site. 
  3. If you are collecting multiple assets of a similar type in the same space, please remember you can copy an asset. See article Copy or Duplicate an Asset when Adding or Editing an Asset.
  4. If you are copying assets from the same space continuously do not forget you can mark the space as a favourite to speed up space selection. See article Copy Existing Assets between Spaces.
  5. If you add an asset to an incorrect space, you can delete or simply move the asset to the correct space. Especially useful if you are verifying pre-loaded asset data. See article Move an Asset.
  6. When recording the asset condition use the condition tags to speed up data entry and improve consistency. You can always use the free text box to add additional info not covered by the tags.
  7. If you are working offline, the items queued up for synchronizing will show as a count attached to the online/offline status indicator. These will be processed when ELIAS is next able to establish a data connection. See article Considerations for offline working with the ELIAS Inspections app.
  8. If ELIAS errors when attempting to synchronize data collected, a count will appear attached to the bell icon in the top right of the page. If this occurs, please contact the ELIAS support desk. See article ELIAS Inspections Online and Sync indicator.
  9. To be able to switch between project accounts (tenants), all data must be fully synchronized and the facilities de-activated to allow you to switch. See article ELIAS Inspections App – Tenant Account Switcher.
  10. This ELIAS Help site contains articles covering all the features covered in this article and is a useful resource as a reminder or self-help. https://help.eliasam.com/. Search is the best way to navigate the site.
