As CrewTracks has grown over the past several years, we have observed a stereotype that exists in the construction world: the idea that construction workers are old-fashioned and stubborn.
While this may be true among some construction companies that are slow to adopt new technology, it is not true of the companies and people that use CrewTracks. Again and again, we have observed incredible innovation and versatility among those who lead their respective industries by adopting new technology, keeping up with industry advancements, and inventing new processes of their own. Our customers regularly marry old-school concepts and classic craftsmanship with cutting-edge approaches that truly make them industry leaders.
With this in mind, we recently invited our customers to apply to be recognized as Innovative Industry Leaders for their respective industries. We are in the process of selecting one company from each industry, and we are thrilled to introduce the first one.
We recently rolled out a feature that allowed you to move and copy documents throughout CrewTracks, which saved a lot of time in cases where you wanted an identical document to reside in multiple contexts. For example, a JSA attached to every job or an inspection attached to every vehicle.
We’re pleased to announce part 2 of that feature: the ability to select all copies of a document for export. The video below will teach you how to use this feature.
A daily report for construction is never complete without photos. Jobsite photos truly are worth a thousand words, and yet, the notes that accompany those photos are often just as important. Today, we’re excited to announce that the notes and photos section of CrewTracks now includes the ability to draw on a photo as well as add text directly to the photo. The following video will give you the basics about this new feature, and if you’d like to learn a bit more, the second video will get into some of the more advanced features.
You’ve always been able to look up jobs by customer in the web app, but now field crews can view jobs by customer in the mobile apps, too! We have added this functionality everywhere you can add jobs to a daily report in the mobile app, including these areas of the mobile apps: time assignment, jobs, production, equipment, notes & photos, and materials.
This two-minute video will show you what to expect with this update.
At CrewTracks, our purpose is to “help and innovate for the people who build and maintain our world.” Because of that, we like to stay updated on the latest and greatest innovations in the construction world. From time to time we will have guest authors on our blog sharing new technologies and techniques. Our first guest author is Sam Willis.
Daily reports for construction are easy with CrewTracks, and we’ve always allowed you to add notes and photos to your daily report. Additionally, CrewTracks allows you to view, edit, annotate, and sign digital versions of your own documents, whether it’s a specific document required by your customer or simply a document you want to keep using because it’s familiar.
However, the notes and photos section and the documents feature have always lived completely separately from each other, which presents a problem if a certain document requires a photo as part of the document.
Today we’re thrilled to demonstrate that once again we’ve heard your feedback and produced a new feature to meet your needs. You can now add photos directly to a PDF document in CrewTracks.
The following two videos will show you how this new feature works.
Just one simple and handy feature to announce today, but stay tuned: very soon we will announce an update to Document Management!
CrewTracks now includes the ability to indicate which users should be notified via email when a schedule containing a certain job is submitted or approved. It’s very simple, very useful, and this 3-minute video will show you everything you need to know.
Daily reports for construction are our bread and butter. Our customers rely on our mobile apps to quickly and simply create daily reports for each construction crew and each job site. However, some of our customers may not be aware of the ways we aggregate that data to allow you to access the information you need without viewing a bunch of individual, daily reports.
In fact, we recently added a new report to CrewTracks: the Clock Status Report. The Clock Status page used to simply be a live look at who is currently clocked in, finished, or not yet started. But wait til you see what it can do now.
