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.
New Issue closing permission for project administrators
New permission allows project admins to close issues regardless of which company, role and author created the issue, giving you complete administrative permissions for closing issues.
