  • Press release
  • Product Info

Birmingham, 2 March 2020

Site Diary, the top construction reporting app is announcing today an update which includes new view only user rights and several user experience improvements. Everything we did is based on user request in order to improve the value the app brings to our users and for the users to have a better experience while using the app on a daily basis.

New View Only user rights

Sticking to our core vision that Site Diary should be a collaborative tool where all stakeholders on a project should be able to see the data, we introduced a view only user rights. This right is for the people in your project/company who just need to see what is going happening on the project and export reports.

See here is the table with the rights that this user can do. Also, visit the user rights tutorial.

Display diary entry creator’s name in the mobile app.

As a supervisor or a foreman on a big site, you may have several people who are filling in diary entries each day. Therefore, we made it easy for you to see who created which entry so you can easily go and signoff/approve the entry.

Make form fields more easily clickable (bigger fields)

We know that an issue that most people in construction have with mobile apps on a phone is that the buttons are too small so it is difficult to navigate. We had this same issue in our app but we have now addressed it by making the buttons bigger, spaces between fields are bigger, and more responsive when you click it. See below the comparison between the old vs the new form.

  • Improve how line breaks (paragraphs) are displayed in events preview
  • Add option to filter events by tasks
  • Fix date/time has been triggered when you click anywhere in the field
