Overview & background

 

Fieldwire features several key ways to notify users about tasks, so that everyone on your project stays in the loop and knows what their responsibilities are.

Notification types

 

Real-time notifications

If you assign a task to a user that also has Fieldwire installed on their mobile device, they will get an immediate notification that a new task has been assigned to them. As all of our tasks follow an ownership model, anyone who has created or been assigned a task will continue to get updates on its progress. This way, if you assign a task to, let's say, a sub, and they mark it as complete, you will get notified of the update.

 

Real-time emails

Same as the notifications above, only via email.

Note: You can adjust the email settings in your profile settings on the web.

Tip: Project Admins can adjust the email notifications everyone in the project receives in the project settings.

 

Automatically-generated activity reports

At 5:00 AM (local time) we will email a report to any user that meets either of the criteria below.

1) You had a new task assigned to them the previous day 

2) You have a task that is due that day.
