Sort Project List By default, projects are sorted, from top to bottom but closest to furthest. Sorting enables you to change the sorting, top to bottom by the last capture date.
Download Project When entering/opening a project, the project’s levels and pin location of all previous captures are downloaded to your local device. This allows you to capture unimpeded
Pin Project to top of list Allows you to pin any project to the top of your project list. This ensures quick and easy access regardless of the current location & proximity to the project.

Open/View Drawing & Exterior Map When a level tile is tapped, the level or map will open up in full screen, allowing you to view the floorplan, map previously captured media, or start capturing
See existing pins/photos/VideoWalks on drawing/Exterior Map You can view all existing captures on their project, both interior & exterior, ground & aerial captures.
Media groups - interior When an image is within ~6 inches of another image, it will automatically get grouped together under a single ‘media group’ pin.
Media clustering - Interior & Exterior By default, all pins within a certain proximity of each other based on the current zoom level will cluster together. As you zoom in, the cluster will break up accordingly
View captures in full view You can select any pin to view in full screen the capture. This is for all capture types, standard photos, 360 panos, and Walk images including aerial captures on the exterior
Compare (split view) between all media types When viewing a media group, you can toggle on Split view to compare two images from the group next to each other.
X-Ray X-Ray allows you to overlay a previously captured image on top of what’s directly in front of you. You can control the transparency level of the overlaying image. This is extremely valuable, allowing you to ‘see’ behind walls, in-slab, or above ceilings.

Capture 360 photo You can capture a 360 photo using a supported 360 camera

Visibility Filter With the visibility filter, you can filter the pins shown on their current level. Available filters include date range, creators, and media type.
Sharing Media You can copy and send out a public encrypted link to the specified captured media
GPS dot GPS dot gives the approximate location on the map according to your mobile device's GPS signal
