What is Daily Reports?

Rain, hail, or shine, your daily reports all together in one place

Daily Reports is now available on both desktop and mobile devices, for all projects enabled with Field. Keep track of important site details such as the weather, site numbers, and equipment - all kept safe in the Aconex audit trail, so it's easy to refer to later.

Stay tuned for further updates as we continue to develop and improve Daily Reports over the coming months.

Key Features

  • Report all site activities for the day, such as workforce present, equipment operated, material delivered, schedule delays, and weather conditions.
  • Add photos to your activity records.

Who can use Daily Reports?

Daily Reports can currently only be used by one organization on the project. By default, this is the Aconex project-owning organization.

On request, the ability to create Daily Reports can be assigned to a different organization. This will mean the organization that currently has access to Daily Reports will no longer be able to use it.

User roles

We’ve created user roles for daily reporting that better reflect your project needs. The new roles empower a report owner to delegate and allow other team members to report on site activities.You can edit user roles in your settings:

Go to Field settings > Your organization.

User roles
Report adminStart, modify and submit any Report Owner's Daily Reports.

Report contributorStart and modify Report Owner’s Daily Reports, but can't submit a report.
