Now that you have started capturing, you can name and search them, making it much easier to find what you are looking for and help you stay organized!

We often see that user's first instinct is to name a Capture something like "Floor 2 - 09/10/21" or "Site Walk 10.09.21". There is nothing wrong with this approach, however the Sheet name and capture date are already automatically recorded as part of your capture! It can be much more powerful to name your captures with different descriptors that you can use to help you later on. For example you may want to label a capture "Area B - Pre Concrete Pour", "Suite 1500 - Framing Complete", "Drywall Begins", or "Rough-Ins in Progress". The possibilities are endless so be creative and use a schema that is helpful for you and your organization - because the capture names become searchable! You are also able to search for dates, and sheets - so the classic info is still there for you, as well.

Any user that is able to take a Capture can name it when it is created. Users will be given the opportunity to name the current Capture before it is started. This occurs after selecting 360 Video Capture and directly before the sheet selection.

If you have Admin rights - you can also create or edit Capture names by using the web browser interface. From the Capture tab on the left-hand rail you are able to rename a capture from within the list of captures on the left or at the top of an active capture. See the following screenshot for clarification:

(Pro Tip: You can also use Capture names like "Please Delete" or "Transfer to Level 4" to help us help you if and when mistakes occur.)

As stated previously Capture Names, Types (360 Video, 360 Photo, 3D Scan), and Sheets are all searchable! To utilize the Search - simply type what you are looking for into the search bar at the top of the Captures list. You are also able to toggle between youngest-to-oldest and oldest-to-youngest by clicking on the descending/ascending arrow next to the search bar to help sort captures further.
