What’s New in Layer: September 2020

Introducing Saved Views!

Customize and save specific sets of data to refer to at any time

With Layer’s new Saved Views you can create custom configurations of searches, sorts, and filters, and save those views in the main navigation sidebar for quick reference later. Saved Views are the perfect tool for creating live reports that track the statuses of Elements, like rooms left to survey or furniture still needing to be installed, even open punch list items.

Table View

Infinitely better than a spreadsheet, Layer’s new Table View makes it easy to see and sort everything as a table. You can even add new Elements and Fields from Table View without opening the flyout detail pane. Easily toggle back to Gallery View or save as a Saved View to refer to later.

Quantity Fields

Need to account for multiple instances of a furniture or other inventory within an Element? Now you can set quantities within Related Fields to track multiple instances of any other Element, including FF&E in a room or inventory on work orders.
