What's New in 2020 R2

The first Viewpoint Team™ release for 2020 contains distribution groups for docs and drawings for web, as well as mobile enhancements including: attachment thumbnails, synced time stamps for docs and drawings, and a Trade name field for project contacts.

Web Enhancements

  • Distribution groups for docs and drawings – Notify multiple users simultaneously in Documents and Drawings in order to save time. Instead of adding users one-by-one for visibility and notification purposes, distribution groups ensure broad and efficient communication, as well as visibility across project teams. For details, see Create a Distribution Group.

Mobile Enhancements

  • Thumbnails for attachments – Save time by visually recognizing attachments (JPEG or PNG files) instead of depending solely on file names to navigate through a list of attachments.

  • Last synced time stamp for docs and drawings – See how current your data is with a new synced time stamp at the top of docs and drawings lists (example: "LAST SYNCED: Feb 5, 2020 6:47 AM"). For details on viewing date/time of the most recent sync or a pending sync, as well as syncing unsynced items, see Sync Indicator.
  • Trade name visibility – Quickly view a contact's role on a project (for example, HVAC technician, drywall installer, electrician, plumber, etc.) with a newly visible Trade field in the mobile app. The Trade setting is visible—and searchable—on the Contact register page for a project, and is specific to that project. For details, see Edit a Contact.
