PlanGrid users may have noticed, or been frustrated with that fact, that some features that are available on the program’s Android and iOS apps are not available on the Windows app. Windows’ Surface tablets have become a popular option for construction teams in recent years, so those users will be happy to hear that the Field Reports function is now available on PlanGrid for Windows.
Field Reports are used in a variety of different ways, including daily reports, safety checklists, and quality control forms, among others. It’s a way to keep everyone on your team in the loop and avoid the hassles of using pen and paper for important recordkeeping documents.
There are some functions of Field Reports that will not be made immediately available for the Windows platform, however. The new References area within Field Reports was recently added in August to the web app, Android, and iOS apps. References allows users to add pictures, documents, and snapshots directly to any Field Report. Though the function isn’t available now for Windows, it will be in the near future. No official release date has been published for that yet.
