Q) Why do I not see Brookstone orders in my Pruvan account?

A) Troubleshooting using Vendor's Pruvan Online account

  1. Verify vendor has orders assigned by Brookstone in Brookstone's Pruvan account.  
  2. Vendor should do a full refresh to "re-synch" their Pruvan account with the Brookstone Pruvan account. Allow 5 minutes to allow accounts to sync. Vendor should receive all assigned orders within 5 minutes if Pruvan Share is properly configured.
  3. If orders do not appear after 5 minutes, verify Vendor's Pruvan Share is setup properly.  Test by pressing Validate button on the Pruvan Share Integration in Vendor's Pruvan account.
  4. If Steps 1-3 have been performed, open a support ticket with Pruvan Support with enough information to help diagnose the issue. Let support know troubleshooting steps have been completed.


Q) Why do my Brookstone orders not appear on Pruvan Mobile?

A) Troubleshooting

  1. Using Vendor's Pruvan Online account, verify Brookstone order is in Vendor's Pruvan account and assigned to a sub-user owned by Vendor.
  2. If work not assigned, make sure Pruvan Share is setup to perform default assignment or instruct vendor to manually assigned work to their sub-users.
  3. If work is assigned properly, make sure field staff is logged in to same sub-user work is assigned to as viewed on Pruvan Online.   
  4. Device must be connected to the internet to receive new work assignments.  If in doubt, login on test device to make sure assigned work appears on test device.  Field Staff will get an alert (if alerts are configured) and must "refresh" orders to see new or updated assignments.
  5. If Steps 1-4 have been performed, open a support ticket with Pruvan Support with enough information to help diagnose the issue. Let support know troubleshooting steps have been completed.

Q) Where are my photos I took using the Pruvan Mobile app?

A) Pruvan Mobile keeps track of the status of all photos taken.  If the status of the photo is "Pending" on Pruvan Mobile, then the device is waiting for a reliable internet connection or survey completion event to send photos to the proper Pruvan Online account for processing.  If the status of the photo is "Upload Complete" the photo has transferred to Pruvan Online.  Any other error message may indicate an issue with the device.  

Troubleshooting to find photos that are "Upload Complete" on Pruvan Mobile

  1. Look at Pruvan Online->Photos to see a history of all photos received in your Pruvan account.  You can click on the Project number to see the photo details and the actual photos.  Here you will see the status of each photo.
  2. If the status of the photo is "Published" then Pruvan Online is finished processing this photo.  
  3. If the status of the photo is "Pending QA" then the order has been configured in such a way that requires manual review and publishing.
  4. If there is any other status message, then follow the clues provided by the error message to resolve the issue and republish the photos.  

Troubleshooting Pruvan Mobile photo status other than "Pending" or "Upload Complete".

  1. If the error message indicates the photos have been moved Pruvan Mobile is unable to find the photos since they have been moved manually by the operator.  This is not recommended.  Pruvan does store the photos locally, but the photos must not be moved or modified in any way.
  2.  If the error message indicates the photos are corrupted this may indicate a device storage failure.  Upgrade storage or replace the device.

If the photos are damaged or device is unable to connect to the Internet

  1. Pruvan stores the photos pending upload to your Pruvan account locally on the device.  Please search the Pruvan Support Center for articles on how to recover your photos from the device if necessary.

If troubleshooting steps above have been performed, open a support ticket with Pruvan Support with enough information to help diagnose the issue. Let support know troubleshooting steps above have been completed.

Q) Why do I need to check-in?

A) If you see Check-In required on Pruvan Mobile, your work provider requires check-in.  Please follow instructions provided by your work provider.
