Overview of what’s new

Expert Connect

  • Connect with other users, whether via the Client Web Portal or 3D headset
  • Expert Connect includes:
    • Real-time chat
    • Direct Audio and Video for 1 – 1 user calls
    • Initiate a call from a job step marker. The contact list will sort by relevant users starting with the original Author and recent Operators.
    • Share photos, videos, PDF’s or jobs with other users via Expert Connect Chat

Working Together 

  • Whether it’s a planned team procedure or an operator unexpectedly needs to reassign a step or job to another operator, this new set of features provides the tools to ‘Work Together’
    • Team Jobs: Invite other Operators to collaborate on a Job by creating a Team. The Team Owner can either assign steps to team members, or they can self-assign steps to themselves. Once the work is divvied up, lock the assignments and start the job. All team members can watch the job progress through each step and view evidence left by other operators
    • Job Assignments: Select the new “Assign” option from a job step marker to invite another operator to take over. Once the operator accepts, they will own the job and all subsequent steps (unless of course they assign it off to someone else)

    • 3D models files, textures and materials should now be uploaded via a Zip-archive folder. The 3D Model Manager will unzip and auto auto-convert to glb and GLTF formats
