Procedures may be sorted by any column header, just click the word in orange at the top of a column to perform a sort by that field. The default sort order is by date. At the right side of the procedure approval window a number of buttons appear.

The lower part of the Procedure Approval screen is a conflict report. You can hide or show this report with the Hide Conflicts button at the bottom left. A conflict refers to a significant difference between an approved procedure in Ardex Premier and that same procedure as recorded in Ardex Mobile.
Such differences may arise from changes made to a procedure after it is recorded, either on the mobile device or on the procedure approval screen, or from network errors. Conflicts may be ignored by ticking the Ignore box at the far right.
Tip: you can highlight multiple lines in the Procedure Approval screen by clicking to the left of the first line and dragging down to highlight subsequent lines. When you click Process only lines with the OK box ticked will actually process and record procedures to Ardex Premier.
