When you generate a "virtual jobsite" using 360 photos with StructionSite, you can start adding RFI's to give true jobsite context to issues that might otherwise be lost in translation when only represented in a 2D floorplan and some regular photos. With this integration, you can create new RFI's that will be added into StructionSite, or add existing Procore RFI's into the context of a photo.
How to enable RFIs/Observations
Enable sync of photos with a Procore project via the project Info popup. Click here for instructions on how to set this up.
Note: If you have previously already enabled photo sync to a Procore album prior to July 11, 2018, you will need to disable, then re-enable, the Procore sync for Observations to show up. This is because the ProCore API was updated to support Observations relatively recently, and re-authentication with ProCore needs to occur to leverage Observations. This may result in a duplicate StructionSite album being created within ProCore - make sure to remove the old album.
How it works
When you create the RFI or Observation, a link to the StructionSite viewpoint will be automatically created in Procore for the RFI/Observation's description. This viewpoint will automatically orient you to look towards where the RFI/Observation was placed! This link is clickable from PDF reports generated from RFI's in Procore. A link to quickly edit the RFI/Observation and view status is also accessible within StructionSite!
When you first enter a 360 photo, you will notice a "loading" indicator below the toolset on the right. When this loading completes, you will be able to click anywhere within the 360 photo to begin the creation of the RFI/Observation
Adding a NEW RFI or Observation will give you a window to enter in all information (with the # being auto-incremented based on what's available). All of the fields shown are the same ones you'd see in ProCore if you were creating the RFI/Observation!
Note: You may need to adjust the window within the 360 pano so it fits within your screen
Adding an EXISTING RFI/Observation will prompt a list of what has already been created within ProCore.
Once created, you'll see the Procore symbol, and RFI or Observation Number, shown as a note title!
Clicking on the RFI/Observation will open up a few options to view the full RFI, edit it's details (i.e. respond to the RFI or Observation or change the status), and check the full history.
