One of the key features that sets PLANFRED apart is its ability to provide you with the most up-to-date plan status at all times. In the list view, you will only see the latest plan status, as older plans are automatically moved to the plan history once a more current version is available. Each plan has its own dedicated history, ensuring that outdated plan versions and their associated activities are always accessible. This gives you a comprehensive overview of all current plans as well as their complete history.
Every plan in PLANFRED comes with various criteria that can be used for filtering. The author's role is automatically assigned when the plan is uploaded and serves as a primary filter.
In addition to filtering by role (e.g., structural engineer), you can further refine your search results by planning phases (folders), objects (parent group), tags, and more. The dynamic filter system in PLANFRED provides real-time feedback on how each filter affects the search results. This ensures that even new project participants can quickly find the plans they need with ease.
PLANFRED allows for seamless emailing of an unlimited number of plans, regardless of their file size. Instead of attaching the plans, they are distributed as download links, ensuring convenience and avoiding file size limitations. Every plan dispatch and download is thoroughly documented, providing a clear record of the process.
This documentation serves as proof that the plans have been properly preserved, even when shared with external individuals who may not have direct access to the project. With PLANFRED, you can confidently manage plan distribution and maintain a traceable record of all communication.
In PLANFRED, you have the freedom to upload plans and documents using any coding system you prefer. If your project has specific plan number defaults, they can be easily applied without additional configuration.
The initial assignment is automatically handled in PLANFRED based on the role of the plan author, which is set automatically during the upload process. Additional criteria can be defined during plan creation or adjusted later through group editing. With this flexibility, you can align PLANFRED with your existing coding practices and seamlessly integrate it into your workflow.
Streamlined Approval Process
PLANFRED's approval workflow offers flexibility and clarity, allowing you to map various plan review scenarios with ease.
Whether a plan requires review by one or multiple approvers, our proven traffic light system ensures clear visibility of the current status for all stakeholders: Yellow indicates approval in progress, Red indicates corrections attached, and Green indicates approval granted. Even during the approval process, the plan index is accessible to all parties involved, facilitating preparation and coordination among trades. With PLANFRED's intuitive approval system, you can streamline the approval process, enhance collaboration, and ensure efficient project progression.
Stay Informed with Upload Notifier
With PLANFRED's upload notifier, you can stay constantly up-to-date and ensure you never miss any new or updated plans and documents within your project.
Whenever new data is uploaded, PLANFRED automatically sends you an email notification at the hour or at midnight (depending on your preference). The upload notifier can be customized individually for each project participant or deactivated altogether.
With the upload notifier, you can effortlessly stay informed about the latest project developments and maintain a seamless workflow.
