Creating projects under the Configurator on the web portal enables FotoIN to use GPS location for automated project identification when taking photos on the job site. The user does not have to manually input the project name for each photo and they can easily search and filter through photos by project name for faster retrieval. The project name can also be used in the filing hierarchy of your storage provider for more efficient organization.
Create a New Project
Under Configuration, select ‘Projects' and then click New Project in the top right.
Fill out the project name and then enter in the full address: street, city, state, and zip code.
Press the Enter or Tab key on your keyboard to refresh the latitude and longitude and find the location on the map.
Enter in the desired radius or drag the circles on the map to change the size. (The radius default is 1,000 feet.)
When you are finished entering in the project information, click Save to activate the new project across your company’s account.
Finally, make sure all mobile users sync their mobile app to capture the newly created project.
Tip: Set the project radius 200 feet larger than the project in order for photos taken on the perimeter of jobsite to capture the correct project name.
Manage An Existing Project
Click Edit to the right of the project that you want to edit. Here you can edit the project’s name, address and radius.
Tags, Report Templates and Filing Paths: To edit per project, you will be prompted to either create a new Project Template or save the future changes to the existing Project Template. Saving changes will be reflected in all future projects using the template.
Tip: All users should sync their apps at the beginning of theday so they have the latest account settings before they get on location.
