Viewing a Field Note

Creating a Field Note

Background:

With Field Notes, you can take a note - text or a photo - with your mobile device while you are doing an OpenSpace walk. That note will then automatically appear at the time and location you took it in the OpenSpace capture. This allows you to add detailed image and other context to your walks, which you can then use in your workflows - punch items, observations, RFI data, and so on.

Instructions:

  • Go to the iOS or Google Play App Store to update to the most recent version of the app. Once the app has finished downloading, force it to refresh by dragging the project list sidebar down with your thumb (as shown below).

  • Start a capture as you normally would. For instructions on starting a capture, click here. Once the capture has begun and you see something in the field that you would like to take a picture or note of, click on the "+ Field Notes" button on the bottom right corner.

  • Field Notes will access the camera on your phone. As you're taking a field note, you can add field note description, status, tag, due date, add members for email alerts and attach files, and then click "Save field note".

  • You can take as many field notes on a walk as you would like - to view your Field Notes during the walk, swipe up the Field Notes section on the capture screen. Once you're finished with your walk, they will be automatically located for you after your capture is uploaded and published.

  • Once you're done, upload your capture as you normally would.

  • Click here for instructions on viewing your Field Notes after your capture has been published.

Taking Field Notes in the Field

  • You can take Field Notes any time you are in the field with your mobile device. Unlike Field Notes taken during a 360 Video, these need to be manually pinned to your Sheets.

If you have any additional questions please reach out to the OpenSpace support team at support@openspace.ai
