SITE Diary new version release (V1.7.0)
- Press release
- Product Info
Birmingham, 15 July 2020
Site Diary, the top construction reporting app powered by Script&Go, is announcing today an update which includes a new location input format, a new way to synchronise data and several user experience improvements. All enhancements are based on user requests in order to improve the value the app brings and so that the users have an improved experience on a daily basis.
New Location input format
Many of you have expressed the need to have the location field as a selectable list instead of a free text section. This so your field teams can just choose a location from the predefined list. This will cause more uniform data among all teammates while making easier to filter and find old entries.
New weather settings
Previous the weather units were automatically set based on your device browser language. Now we have made it so site supervisors/admins can select the weather units for their sites.
You can access the new weather settings from inside the Site Settings section below the site location.
New way to synchronise data
We know that your data is important and with the new synchronisation process, all your data will always synchronise and even faster.
If you are working offline, once you are back online and you open the app, all the entries that you created while offline will be synchronised. Also, if you have rights of a Supervisor, you will also receive all entries that other users created when you were offline.
Separation of Resources items into Resources and Information
Since we have added the new location library, we have decided that we need to split the “Resources” section as we cannot classify a location as a resource. We have created a new section called Information that contains Location, Tag and Contractor libraries.
The resources section will now only contain Manpower, Equipment and Material.
New navigation on Organisation settings
We have now made it easier for Administrators to navigate throw the Organisation section. You can easily switch between editing your Company details, adding Global Resources, add global information, and add company users and managing subscription.
Also, from the same screen, you will be able to click to enter a site by clicking the site list.
- Improved event creation form on web app
- Input of resources on two lines (mobile app)
There were some other minor improvements / bug fixes such as the following.
- Contractor and status filter doesn’t work
- Share event sends an empty email
- Event list date filters display incorrect results
- Fix users rights changing by themselves
- + button on diary and task creations sometimes moves or disappear
In case you missed it, earlier year before the COVID-19 we had an update that saw these improvements.
- View-only user rights
- Improve how line breaks (paragraphs) are displayed in events preview
- Make form fields more easily clickable (bigger fields)
- Display details about event creator in the event list and event preview
- Add option to filter events by tasks
