New Company Contact People tab

We have added a People tab in company contacts to show you which people are associated with company contact.

People (left nav) > Companies > Company contact > People tab

New Contacts Company Page and Company Field Search

We have updated Contacts to include a new Companies page, which eliminates the clutter of having Person contacts and Company contacts mixed in the same place. This will also help you spot any duplicate company contacts.

In order to help standardize company names and eliminate any duplicates, we have also added a company search field to the New Person pop-up. Now when you create a Person contact, you will be able to search for an existing Company contact name and link the Person contact to that Company contact. If you can't find the company name when searching, a New Company option will appear in the search field so that you can create a Company contact without having to leave the form.

As a result, if you ever update the name of a Company contact, the company name will also be updated on all of the linked Person contacts as well. This will help standardize the company names listed in your contacts.

People > Contacts or People > Companies


New Contacts column orders and filters

We have completely rebuilt the Contacts' table for speedy filtering and sorting and the ability to show/hide different columns. Now you can filter by Tags, Job Title, Address, City, State, ZipCode, County/Locale, Country, Mobile, Phone 1, Phone 2, Fax, Notes.

New Document Summary Grid Updates

We have replaced In Review and Completed with Open and Closed in the document summary grid. Open and Closed states include a combination of all document statuses, so that no documents fall through the cracks.

Project Duration Bar

The Project Duration bar provides you and your team with a visual representation of how close you are to the forecasted finish date of each project. You can use this data to make actionable decisions that help you and your teams stay on or ahead of schedule.

When you add a Start and Finish date to your projects, you will see a progress bar at the top of each Project Summary page.

Project Switcher

We've added a way for you to quickly navigate between your favorite projects. From within any project, you can now click the project name at the top to expose a drop down menu of your favorite projects so that you can quickly jump between them. You'll need to have at least one project "favorited" before this appears.

Daily Report Global Settings

Now you can manage daily report settings across ALL projects with our global settings option. Change the time all Daily Report emails go out, whether or not you'd like to see Timesheets or weather data on Daily Reports, etc.

Settings (left nav) > Daily Reports


Submittals Required Import Feature

From the Submittals page within your project, click New Submittal Required and from the dropdown options select Import and proceed to import your CSV file.

Once you've successfully imported the file, you'll be taken to an import wizard screen where you can select which columns from your file correlate to the items in BuildingBlok. Once you've selected the appropriate items for each column (note: you cannot repeat options), press Verify and Save and the import will begin.

Now when you visit the "People" page in BuildingBlok, you’ll be able to easily tell which users in your company are admin and which are non-admin. Admin users will be marked with an orange icon and be clearly labeled as “Company admin,” while non-admin users will have green icons. No more clicking around!

Archiving codes has never been easier.

Timesheets (left nav) > Codes > Archive in the code's Actions dropdown.

If you are working on Daily Reports, RFIs or any other documents, you can upload files and images directly from your Dropbox account from the attachments page in each document.
