Mobile release version 4.14

Our latest release of BIM 360 Field for iPad version 4.14 compliments the most recent Daily Update enhancements, which were released for Field web.  The new release includes:

  • Daily Update view permissions: view your own, your company, all
  • Daily Update subcontractor access
  • Access project wide Daily Update General Notes template
  • Attach library documents to Daily Updates
  • Copy previous entries Daily Update labor activities
  • Based on new permission, project admins can close issues regardless of issue company, role or author

New Daily Update Viewing Permissions: None, My Own, My Company, All

The new enhancements to Daily Updates viewing permissions enable project administrators to control the daily updates records users are able to view.

New permissions include:

None:  user cannot see any daily updates

My Own: users can only see Daily Updates, which they authored

My Company: user can only see Daily Updates created by members of their company

All: user will see all Daily Update records on the entire project

The updated calendar view shows total count of all daily updates for each day of the month where an entry exists.  Clicking on a specific date will open up a list of all Daily Updates for that date, which match users viewing permissions.

Daily Updates subcontractor access

Continuing on the recent enhancements to the Daily Updates module, we are expending Daily Updates access on construction sites to subcontractors. At this time, subcontractors can only see Daily Update entries created by them and not by other members on the project.  To enable this feature, project administrators can go to:

Project Admins > Permissions > Subcontractor settings > Can access daily updates

Daily Updates template for General Notes section

Project administrators can now create a light weight Daily Update general notes template to guide the user through different types of information they would like to capture.  The template will be applied to all new Daily Update entries.  To create a general notes template, sing in as a project administrator and go to:

Project Admins > Details > Daily Update and General Notes Template

Daily Updates – copy labor activities from previous entries

Filling out Daily Update labor activities just got easier.  In addition to being able to copy previous labor entries including number of workers and hours, Field users can now copy labor activities for selected companies.

    Agree with lcollier, if we are asking users to identify key items then these should be bold and underlined with all other text standard and not underlined.

    With the General Notes

    It would be nice to be able to do Text formatting on the Template.  It would also be pretty effective to be able to add check boxes or other Form type Yes, No, Descriptions.

    Or be able to center or left justify.

    Since downloading this update a colleague using the APP is now unable to even add or view site diaries on his ipad? 

    Do you know why this would be? it seems to be a user profile issue as when changing IPADs the issue is still present. No user settings have been changed since the update and was working perfectly previously.
