After reading this article, you will understand how to setup Salesforce Field Service Mobile with Youreka to allow working with Youreka forms inside the Salesforce Field Service mobile app.
Please note, this functionality is pending an upcoming Salesforce release
The Salesforce Field Service LWC workspace allows a user to work on existing Youreka forms while remaining inside the Field Service mobile app. This feature is useful because it eliminates the need for a user to switch between the Field Service Mobile app and the Youreka Mobile app to access and work with your Youreka Forms.
Once you have setup the Salesforce Field Service with Youreka you be able to:
- Load a basic form in the SFS mobile app
- Submit a basic form in the SFS mobile app and have the data saved back to Salesforce
- Load a cached basic form in the SFS mobile app
