Many people use Fieldlens to avoid doing reports altogether. The Feed of project updates exists so that anyone can log into the app and see exactly what’s happening on the jobsite, live.

But we get it - sometimes you need a printed report. Fieldlens reports are built from the posts that you and your team create. So you keep doing what you’re doing in Fieldlens - document the jobsite, assign tasks, create a punch list, etc, and run a report when you need it.

No need to remember or double-enter information at the end of the day, week or month — it’s already there in your posts, ready to be exported.

PDF Reports

PDF reports can be sent from your mobile device or the web and are typically what people use for their daily reports. It’s easy to set them to include only the posts updated that day or to refine them - by date or category for example.

From the Web App:

The layout and content of PDF reports can be customized from the web. You can choose from several preset formatting options or customize them to your liking.

If you choose to include media, thumbnails of any photos or video in your posts will show up in the PDF report you — and any others you share it with — will receive in your email inbox. Clicking on them will show the full-size image or play the video.

Other report types

You can also send two additional types of reports:

Post Summary Report (CSV): A summary of all current posts, minus media. Each assignee will have their own line in the spreadsheet with their associated status on tasks.

Resource Tracking Report (CSV): Any resource data that you’ve entered can be exported into a single report.

Viewing reports you’ve run

From the web app, click Reports at the top of the toolbar to see a list of reports you’ve run. Company Admins can also view reports run by any user from your company.
