Logs

What is a log?

A log is a simple form, used to capture information about something that happened on the job site, along with pictures. When logs are created, they can automatically notify people in channels. Standard log categories include:

  • Delivery
  • Inspection
  • Injury
  • Order Request
  • Progress
  • Receipt
  • Safety Violation
  • Sign In
  • Sign Out
  • Subcontractor Work

Logs are specific to a project. When you create a new project, you will be asked whether you would like to use logs on the project, and if so, which categories to include.
