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. Plans and blueprints can be added to projects as well for faster retrieval from the field. Contact us to learn more about the ability to add this feature to your company account.
Add Plans to a Project
Under Admin Console, select ‘Projects’ and then select an existing project or create a new one.
Under the Projects label, click on Add and a popup window will prompt you to:
Type in the name of the plan/blueprint.
Click on ‘Browse..’ to upload a PDF, PNG or JPEG file from your computer.
When the file is ready to Publish, you can preview the image full screen or reject the image.
Finally, click Publish to approve the plan and make it available to field users. Then click Save to save the file to the project.
