There are many reasons why you might need to export the data that you've been capturing in StructionSite. Whether you need to share photos for a particular RFI, provide visual proof for payment, or submit site documentation for project closeout, the Offline Project Deliverable allows you to share your project outside of StructionSite.

At any time during a project, you can export the content you've captured during the project into an offline deliverable. Through the Export Project Data feature, you can filter the content you are exporting based on the drawings, date range, and/or media type. After the export has been processed, you will receive an email with .zip files to download to your computer. The offline project deliverable will contain PDF drawings as well as photo and video files stored stored in StructionSite.

In order to view the Offline Project Deliverable, you will need access to the following:

  • A PDF viewer, such as Bluebeam or Adobe Reader

  • Adequate space on your computer or USB drive to store all photos/PDFs

  • A web browser to view 360 photos

To export an Offline Deliverable, follow these steps:

1. From the project homepage, navigate to the "Settings" tab.

2. Under the "Export Project Data" section, select the "Start new export" button.

3. On the "New Export" page, you can filter the data you would like to export by drawing, date range, and media type. Each category needs to be completed in order to export the offline deliverable. Once the "Export" icon turns orange, click the "Export" button to complete your export request.

4. You will receive a confirmation message that your project data is being processed. Click "OK" to return to your project's Settings page.

5. Once our servers have processed your project's content, you will receive an email with a .zip file download link. Depending on the size of the project, the email will contain one or more .zip files. 

6. Download the. zip file(s) and unzip the files to a folder on your desktop or onto a USB drive. Please note that the files must be unzipped in order to work properly.
