Field Report Example in Layer

Watch this short video to see Layer’s Field Report example project in action.

Key Points in the Field Report Example

In this 3-minute video, architect Zach Soflin, AIA, demonstrates an alternative to disconnected field report tools like cameras and word documents.

Here are the 5 key takeaways:

→ Eliminate redundant documentation work. Capture site conditions and photos in one mobile app. No need to download and organize back at the office.

→ Markup photos and drawings in the field. Link site observations to specific locations in the drawings to communicate issues in real time while on site.

→ Reference Revit data in the field. Keep the Revit model and drawing set handy while documenting and reviewing work in the field.

→ Store Site Observations and Field Reports in one database. Stay organized with everything searchable and accessible in one app.

→ Create customizable deliverables. Layer automatically backfills site visit data into field reports. Edit reports directly in Layer without copying into third-party software. Export reports as shareable PDF documents.

Layer made the documentation process so much easier. Without Layer App, it would have taken days of work just labeling and identifying pictures. We didn’t have that time and the result would have been a less accurate restoration.
