Several new features and updates in our October release help make your field teams even more productive. While we continue as the Fastest In The Field®, we have increased the power of collaboration features in BIManywhere based on global client feedback. We welcome your continued suggestions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Talk, Don’t Type
You can now voice record and share field issues with a single finger – instead of typing them. Recordings are available to all field workers, as well as to office staff.
Create your own checklists: punch lists, inspection lists, whatever. Customize them on the fly and/or base them on standard templates. Checklists can be used in field issues to document process status and completion.
Two measurement tools provide easier to read, more intuitive results for multiple clearances and point to point measurements. The Clearance Measurement tool can display clearance in two dimensions at once, if the selected objects are diagonally offset (as shown).
Collaborators, supervisors, and managers can keep track of issues via email updates as ‘followers’, without being directly assigned to the issues.
Using our new Archive button, Project Managers can unclutter issues lists by storing issues that are not immediately relevant, or have been closed, and restoring them later as needed.
Improved Gyroscope Button
Our iPad Gyroscope control allows full 3D roaming to look behind ceilings, walls, and floors. Touch the control and hold it while moving the iPad up, down, and around. Slide the control down to “lock” Gyroscope mode on. Touch the control briefly to unlock and release it.
For on-the-job training, iPad users may touch the circled “I” in the lower left corner while viewing a model and receive animated help on navigation and operation. Touch the screen to hide the tips.
