We just launched a much requested feature: Allowing any user to write and manage inspection reports in the web interface at setup.captego.com.
The web interface has until now been reserved for company administrators. It allows easy management of company settings, templates, user, etc. In the web interface, Captego also has the super-fast report editor. Allowing only administrators to log in to the web interface has basically been blocking all mobile app users from accessing the powerful features in the editor.
From today, any user can log in to the web interface and start creating and writing reports. Photo registrations made using the mobile app will (as always) immediately be stored and become available in the reports. What some users call "magic". BTW, if you've still not tried opening the report view for an inspection and make registrations using the mobile app, I recommend you try it now.
Anyone who is not a company administrator will see a simplified user interface when logging into setup.captego.com. An interface with only a few menu items:
This simplified view makes it easier for first time users when they need to navigate around the reports they're creating. At the same time there's no risk non-administrators make unintended changes to templates or other configurations.
The report editing interface is also very simple:
If you're interested in knowing the differences between administrator privileges and non-administrator tools, read on.
First, administrators have the full package of functionality, including but not limited to:
Non-administrators can now log in to the web interface and do the following:
* contributors: A number of companies set inspectors as contributors on inspections. Contributor access gives very limited access to inspections (vs. full ownership). When a user is a contributor to an inspection the user does not have access to edit reports. The user can only see, create and modify own registrations. So if you have 10 contributors on an inspection and 1 owner, all the contributors don't see anything but the registrations they make themselves. Meanwhile, the owner sees everything done by any contributor and can write, edit and create the report with all contributor registrations.
Actually, not much has changed with this release. However, when I describe the interactivity in details, it may seem overwhelming. Don't hesitate contacting firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or feedback to this new functionality.
