Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for New Capture Workflow

Q1: What's the new capture workflow?

A1: The new capture workflow in the app introduces a more efficient way to capture images for your projects. Instead of immediately entering capture mode upon selecting a project, you now have the option to choose the correct level - either exterior map or interior level—where you'll be capturing images.

Q2: How has the image capture process changed?

A2: We've streamlined the image capture process. Rather than capturing an image first and then placing it on a map, you can now capture a photo simultaneously while placing a pin location. Before tapping the capture button, simply zoom in to position the crosshair in the middle of the screen at your current location, then tap the capture button. The pin is placed underneath the crosshair at the same time the photo is captured. This eliminates the need for a separate step, making the process more efficient.

Q3: How do I sync my captured images?

A3: After completing your capture session, don't forget to upload/sync your images. You'll need to manually tap the sync button to initiate the syncing session.

Q4: Can I view all types of captured images on my project?

A4: Yes, you can now view all captured standard, 360-degree, and Walkthrough images on your project. This includes both images captured via drone and other methods.

Q5: What additional features are available for viewing captures?

A5: With the ability to view your captures, the app introduces two valuable features:

  • Split View: This feature allows you to compare two progress photos side by side, providing insights into changes over time.
  • X-Ray Mode: X-Ray mode overlays a previously captured photo on top of your camera's live feed. This enables you to make real-time comparisons between what's in front of you now and what was captured in a previous session.

Q6: What mobile devices support the app?

The new app is currently only supported on iOS devices which can be found on our Recommended and Supported Devices list here: Supported iOS Devices List

We hope these improvements enhance your workflow and provide you with greater flexibility in managing your projects.
