Find What You're Looking For

Intro

Every job you're on involves a lot of communication and documentation of what's happening every day: the back and forth, questions and answers, work being assigned and done, pictures, updates, etc.

In Fieldlens, that communication is captured in posts - and before long, there will be a lot of them on your job.

Luckily, you have plenty of options to always find what you're looking for, and Fieldlens will even surface the most important information from the job without you having to look for it.

Quick filters

Fieldlens lets you quickly look at different types of posts using quick filters - accessible within each project on both web and mobile.

At the top of your screen (top left on the web) you'll see your project's name, and just under that, the name of the quick filter you're currently viewing (typically"Everything") as well as the count of posts within that view.

Simply tap or click the quick filter name to switch your view up.

  • All unread posts.
  • Your personal to-do list - posts assigned to you.
  • Posts assigned by you - to other people or companies.
  • Your company to-do list - things assigned to your company.
  • 2-Week look ahead - posts with due dates within the next two weeks.
  • Drafts - created by you or others at your company.
  • At-risk posts - any posts that are due today or tomorrow.
  • Void posts - any posts that have been marked "Void" by your or your team. You can reactivate them from the web.

Focus

Focus keeps your attention on work that is due soon or past due - whether it's assigned to you or assigned by you - without you having to search for it.

 Check out the Focus section on your mobile or web app to see:

  • Work that you or your team have been assigned that’s due soon or past due.
  • Work that you've assigned to someone else that is due soon or past due.
  • Work that is finished and ready for your review.

You’ll see the summary count of posts in each category, and you can tap the Focus notification to view all of those posts in detail.

Pulse

Pulse is a tool that helps you see, at a glance, how your team’s tracking on tasks. You’ll get a live look at post counts along with their status: Unassigned, Open, Open and Past Due, Resolved and Closed.

 

You'll find Pulse along the right sidebar on the web app.

You can click or tap on any status to view the matching posts in full detail.

Pulse also bubbles up the posts that are trending, letting you know which people, tasks, topics, and jobsite locations need your attention most.

Like post status, you can click on any of these trending posts to view a list of what's seeing the most activity on the job.

Filters

You can also filter your Feed from your mobile or web app to isolate the exact info you're looking for. At any time, drill down to a specific project location, category, assignee, due date and more.

On your mobile device you'll access the filters from the top left - click the current filter name (usually Everything), and then tap Advanced.

 

You'll find the filter options on the web app to the left of your Feed. Once you've made your selections you'll have the option to save the filter to access it easily later.

Search

We're all familiar with search functionality from Google and our email programs. Fieldlens also offers the ability to search any project for specific information. On web or mobile, just look for the magnifying glass, type in your keywords, and search away.
