Quick Byte #2: Plan ahead

Okay, imagine this. You’re going to host a big meal. The first thing you’ll do is to plan the menu and prepare a list of ingredients before heading to the store.

Same goes for documenting a building’s existing conditions. Configuring a list of form fields ahead of time ensures that you’ll capture the information you need consistently and accurately when you’re on site.

And with Layer’s new mobile-friendly Drawing View, you can have your drawing set with you too. Quickly drop annotations that are linked directly to the data you capture in the field.

No clipboards. No wondering which room this measurement refers to. Setting your project up in Layer before going on site will pay dividends in the field and back at the office.
