Product Updates

We house our updates here to keep you informed. Please email [email protected] with any questions about any of these updates, or suggestions on what we should work on.

UPDATES Since 03.29.2018

  • Users now can request to be put on a project trial, which allows a project to have unlimited users and access to all integrations and full StructionSite features for a given period of time for a fuller evaluation of the software
  • Fixed a bug where exporting a PDF the first time resulted in a blank PDF, which required clicking export again to get pins to show up.
  • Fixed a bug where when you go into the project info screen, you can’t get out without typing the project name
  • Fixed a bug where collaborators could not access the split-view function when viewing a photo
  • Fixed a bug that prevented users from exporting large numbers of PINs
  • Refined the account page so it doesn’t show any expiration date or option to upgrade if you’re on a project team plan/enterprise plan. Also, it’ll actually tell you if you’re an enterprise administrator if you’ve been assigned that role (so that you can feel both more special and more powerful than regular users)
  • Refined the “Add User” popup so now it shows a description of what each user does (Admin, collaborator)
  • Added a “Share Link” that allows you to add users as an admin or collaborator. This link can be shared with others, and when they use that link, they can sign up for an account (or login to an existing account), and get automatically added to the project. This makes onboarding of new users much more streamlined without requiring email confirmation or having the admin manually add in each new user as the project goes on (ability to require approval and to turn off the public link coming in the next release)
  • Public photos now show notes/chats that have been added (Ability to turn this off globally to come in next release)
  • Fixed a bug where uploading a PDF as an image, or certain PDFs with certain markups in them, would not process
  • Added a workflow to be able to reset password directly from the account page, without having to log out, in case you forgot your password
  • Fixed a bug where when you add a progress photo to an existing photo, the photo gets de-selected
  • Fixed a bug where if you were adding a new area, and had many drawings, the list was not scrollable
  • Added a loading indicator to My Account Page so you don’t just see a blank screen

UPDATES Since 03.13.2018

  •  Area grouping of drawings (AKA folders). Whether you’re building a high-rise or have multiple buildings in your project, being able to organize the drawing backgrounds for your photos by building area is key for accessibility.
  • Auto-archiving of photos into Box, Egnyte, One-Drive, and more!
    You can now set up your project so that photos will get auto-exported into your cloud-provider of choice, such as Box, Egnyte, One-Drive, DropBox, Sharefile, and more! We also now do photo syncing on a project-level basis, with separated folders for each drawing automatically!
  • New enterprise-level accounts. Due to the fast growing number of companies who have decided to take advantage of StructionSite’s (rather cost-effective) enterprise plan, we have created a new type of super-user that allows for the creation of projects with unlimited users without requiring per-project approval by our staff!

Web Specific:

  • Support for an additional SSO option: OpenID Connect!
  • Fixed a bug where if you upload a PDF, it would have a green background
  • Fixed a bug that caused the rotation of a PDF upon upload
  • Changed sync of photos to ProCore from drawing level to project level
  • Fixed a bug where public viewed images wouldn’t show up correctly on FireFox or Internet Explorer
  • Added ability to add multiple email addresses at a time for new team members
  • Refine Project Tag management so it’s more stable and allows you to mass add/mass delete/edit tags

iOS Specific

  • Split view mode refinements
  • Fixed a bug where updated drawings on web didn’t always appear on mobile
  • Added a more serious warning for when you log out w/o syncing photos first (lets you know they will get deleted)
  • Allow users to login via ProCore credentials
  • Added a cool onboarding workflow to show you how to access photos
  • Fixed a bug where push notifications for new chats sometimes wouldn’t work

UPDATE 11.12.2017

 Web Updates:

  • You can now add drawings from Egnyte or ProCore, and any changes that occur to those drawings will seamlessly slipsheet within the StructionSite app to ensure photos are being captured on the latest drawings!
  • You can now sign up or login using your BIM 360 credentials, without having to memorize a separate login
  • Offline Deliverable has been refined to include in the ZIP files relative-hyperlinked PDFs (to work 100% offline) which will link directly to photos within the same folder, and a special PDFs to allow you to quickly browse PINs that have many progress photos on them
  • Fixed bug that prevented uploading of photo files (JPG, PNG) as drawings
  • Fixed a bug where sometimes when you export a PDF, it’s rotated and cropped

iOS Updates:

  • Now when you reply to a note, you can @ mention someone. You type @, and it’ll pull up a list of collaborators in the project. When you @ mention someone, yourself as well as that other person will receive an email if there is anyone else that responds to that note
  • iOS notifications when someone replies to a note (slack-style). When a note you’ve subscribed to is responded to, you’ll get a notification with what the message says on your iOS device. When you tap on the notification, it’ll take you right to that photo and orient you towards that note, so you can see the context and quickly reply to it
  • Ability to share a note – you can take any note and generate a hyperlink that can be texted or emailed. If that note is opened on an iOS device, then it’ll automatically take the user to that note within the photo in the StructionSite app without having to navigate there on their own. Note this works on iOS only, not web yet
  • Tap/hold to move a pin that hasn’t yet been synced, in case you’ve made a mistake in the placement of that PIN
  • Fixed bug where swapping between landscape and portrait mode resulted in the photo position jumping to a different spot
  • Fixed a bug where tapping on the live preview of a standard photo just took the photo instead of expanding the live preview

UPDATE 10.09.2017

  •  You can now do split-view comparison on standard photos!
  • You can now add notes to standard photos (note: iOS does not have this ability yet, but should have it soon)
  • Changed the behavior of publicly encrypted links to PINs generated from PDF where it would take you to the earliest photo taken at that spot, not latest. Now, it’ll take you to the latest photo.
  • Added ability to sign-up and login using existing ProCore credentials
  • Fixed bug where drawings were not being ordered alphanumerically

 iOS Updates:

  • Added support for the Garmin VIRB 360 and NCTech Iris 360 cameras
  • When you try to sync a project and there’s no internet, user will receive an error message telling the user to get some internet
  • Fixed a bug where a photo would fail to sync if you close the app/put it into the background while syncing

  • Added an onboarding screen to assist new users with how to get the most out of StructionSite
