Many people use Fieldlens to avoid doing reports altogether. The Feed of project updates exists so that anyone can log in to the app and see exactly what’s happening on the jobsite, live.
But we get it - sometimes you need a printed report. Fieldlens reports are built from the posts that you and your team create. So you keep doing what you’re doing in Fieldlens - document the jobsite, assign tasks, create a punch list, etc, and run a report when you need it.
No need to remember or double-enter information at the end of the day, week or month — it’s already there in your posts, ready to be exported.
PDF reports can be sent from your mobile device or the web and are typically what people use for their daily reports. It’s easy to set them to include only the posts updated that day or to refine them to include only specific types of posts or a certain date or range of dates.
Thumbnails of any photos or video you include in your posts will show up in the PDF report you — and any others you share it with — will receive in your email inbox. Clicking on them will show the full size image or play the video.
Other report types:
From the web app and Android you can also send additional types of reports:
PDF: A PDF format that can have a few different layouts.
- Compact: A condensed view of posts that only show the title, status, post number, location and categories
- Current Status: The current status of all posts that includes all information for the post without comments.
- Full History: All relevant information for every post. This will show all updates and comments on the post.
- Drawing Status: The current status of all posts that includes all information for the post without comments. The posts are grouped by the drawing they are pinned to and the full size drawing is printed before each post section.
- Custom: You can pick and choose what data points you want to show.
PDF (Legacy): A PDF format that was introduced in 2015 and will be deprecated by mid-2017. We recommended setting up a Customizable PDF listed above.
DOC: A DOC format version of the Post History Report PDF and will also be deprecated by mid-2017.
CSV: A comma separated list of posts in a .csv file format.
- Post Summary: A summary of all current posts, minus media. Each assignee will have their own line in the spreadsheet with their associated status on tasks.
- Resource Tracking: Any resource data that you’ve entered can be exported into a single report.
