Custom Field Type: Documents and Photos

We’ve added the ability to upload documents and photos to custom field types on Tasks

Documents and Photos

This capability opens up a world of potential uses—like a field for before & after photos, contracts, and specification sheets.

The uploaded photos can then be displayed within task emails, layouts (e.g. task and invoice layouts), and reports.

Field: Asset List update

We’ve rejigged our Asset List to make it easier for you to sort through

Asset List update

As with our recent updates to the Compliance area (more information in the update below), the full set of assets will now display by default.

These can then be further sorted using the Categories selector if you know which category and/or sub-category the asset is stored under, or simply via the filter and search options.

Field: Compliance area updates

The Compliance area has been freshened up to make it easier for you to find what you need

Office: Cost Over-runs Highlighted

Cost over-runs are now simpler to spot

Cost Over-runs Highlighted

We’ve made a minor, but useful change to help out all the busy project managers out there.

The Project Progress tab will now highlight any cost over-runs using a different text colour, allowing you to quickly tell if a project is experiencing costing issues.
