Overview & background
Plan viewing and versioning is the backbone of Fieldwire. In the Plans tab, you can view all uploaded plans and add new ones to the project. You are also able to search for plans by sheet # and description in the search bar at the top of the page.
Plans tab functions
You can upload plans that are PDFs (single or multipage), PNGs, or JPEGs. We do not currently support DWGs.

Selecting upload option to select sheets to upload
Note: You can upload from your computer, Dropbox, Box, Google Drive, One Note, Gmail and from live hyperlinks.
Note: When you click '+' New plan' (see below) and upload from that flow, there is no sync or integration. You can manually upload plans from those sources.

When you select files, they are automatically scanned by our OCR scanner and create links between the different plans. Fieldwire also automatically versions the plans for you.

Number of plans in folders
See the count of unique plans in each folder. This does not count versions, just the number of uploaded plans.
Number of plans in folders
- if you have less than 100 plans: all folders expanded at initial load, clicking the all plans folder collapses all folders.
- if >100 plans all folders collapsed at initial load, only one folder can be expanded at once (for performance reasons).
