Delete individual project data to free up space

Field users who are on numerous projects can run into the iPad’s storage capacity limits, filling up the storage with project data.  We are providing the ability for users to delete individual project data from the device.   To delete project data, make sure your project does not have any un-synced local data and go to:

  1. Sync Settings
  2. Select Delete Project Data
  3. Find the project you would like to delete and swipe left
  4. Press Delete

Create multiple issues from linked issue templates

Field project administrators can create multiple related issue templates and link them together. As a classic example, create issue two templates:

  1. Template 1: Patch drywall – assigned to drywall subcontractor
  2. Template 2: Paint drywall – assigned to painting subcontractor

Once you link Paint drywall template to Patch drywall template, when user creates an issue based on Patch drywall template, a second issue Paint drywall is automatically created and assigned to the painting subcontractor.  This functionality is currently only available within the issue list view on both web and iPad.

    Lee, you must have much more power than I do since I posted this request in the community forum 3-25-2015.  Maybe I’ll start having you submit my suggestions 🙂

    As the 360 Field support guy for my company,  I really appreciate the ”Delete individual project data to free up space”.  This is a real time saver considering the large number of projects I have to deal with.  

    I asked about this a couple weeks ago at AU.  I’d like to believe that this was done especially or me. 🙂 Ask and you shall receive. 

    Thank you very much!
