August 2017

  • The new option to add non-technical PDF documents to a project and insert them into already created PDF reports. This allows project managers to upload company-specific documents such as invoices or inspection documents to create a standard project report.
  • Addition of a new field type for project attributes: Date. This field allows users to enter a date attribute with a streamlined date selection feature so that installers and project managers can note inspection, maintenance, and installation dates with less risk of error.
  • Addition of a new field type for project attributes: Numeric Text. This field allows users to enter data similar to the Free Text field, but only numeric data (up to 3650 characters) can be entered. Installers, inspectors, and project managers can thus enter discrete numeric time periods (e.g., days, weeks, months, or years) with less risk of error.
  • Addition of a new field type for project attributes: Text field. This field allows users to enter alphanumeric free text (up to 800 characters). This allows for adding detailed comments and notes that are easily readable in the application and reports.

  • Project managers also have the option of configuring attribute fields in the office application so that they can be edited in the read view of the CFS-DM. Thus, third parties, such as inspectors, who want to access details about an item outside of the mobile application by scanning the corresponding QR code, now have the ability to edit specific data about an item (e.g., by adding an inspection status or comments).
  • Several user interface and user experience updates have been implemented, including consolidated item counts in the hierarchy view of a subproject.
