BIM 360 Release Notes

BIM 360 Field Management Update – May 13th, 2019

Introduction

The May 13th, 2019 BIM 360 Field Management update delivers the following enhancements.

  • Support for large checklists
  • Daily Log Photos

Support Large Checklists

With the recent release we have provided support for large checklists which contain over 300 items.

This latest release has made it possible for Field Management to better support your Safety Programs by ensuring we are able to support those larger checklists.

Daily Log Photos

In addition to adding notes to your Daily Logs, we now have the ability to add photos as supplement to your notes. Within the Daily Log notes widget we have added a camera icon which allows the user to add photos from their hard drive if on web or their camera/iOS library on the mobile device.

Within the Notes and Photos widget, the “Add Photos” button has been added. The newly added Add Photos button allows you to add photos from your hard drive to the Notes and Photos Widget as shown below.

Once the photos are added they can be seen within the Notes and Photos widget.

The ability to see the user who added the photo along with their company can be seen by hovering over the photo. Hovering over the photo also surfaces the menu where the option to permanently delete the photo is available. These features are available in Web only.

The ability to add photos as well as view the already added photos is also available on the mobile device as shown below.

 

This recent enhancement to the Field Management Daily Log feature allows you not only to describe the day’s activities in words but also supplement your activities with valuable photos.

    Regarding the daily logs, we are missing some very fundamental features. Following the standard form of daily logs in Germany (compare https://www.avery-zweckform.com/produkt/bau-tagesbericht-1777 for this):

    – get weather in correct local language (currently weather text is english only
    – track on site workers count with differentiation of roles, not companies
    – or let us select project registered companies without active users to create that feature easily by ourselves
    – track on site work performed as text comments to on site companies (but without workers and hour counts this time)
    – add comments to photos to tell what you can see on it – or refer to photos in inline text by identification number
    – track on site machinery from a previeous registered list or free text
    – print a pdf report of a single daily log in an acceptable way for the records (we are oftenly forced to upload pdf daily logs to the customers ECM solutions)

    All no big steps but the current state of the solution makes it ununsable for at least german projects we are involved in.
    Can we help to shape the requirements in any way to improve the solution faster? We would actually love to use it in production.

    You can add only one rule in the notes. 🙁 Can this be changed to multi-line??

      Hi Joris,

      You can add multi-line by using specific commands on your keyboard. As an example for Mac users, you can use the ‘Command’ and ‘Return’ keys and this takes you to a new line.

      Thanks
