Project Browse/Search

The Project Browse/Search page is now sorted by project number.

Site Visit and Construction Diary

Onware weather data can be manually entered and automatically retrieved for the Project Location (as set in the Project setup) or the current location of the person logged into Onware.


If a Transmittal is cancelled, the last recipient column on the Submittal Browse/Search page will update to the previous Transmittals last recipient.

Progress Claim

To accurately reflect where the data is derived from, we have updated the word on the Progress Claim Search page from “Amount Claimed” to “Total Completed to Date”.

Quotation – Time Impact field

Onware has added a time impact field to Quotations.  In the instance where a Quotation is derived from a CRX, the Time impact value from the CRX will automatically populate into the Quotation time impact field. When the Prime Consultant Accepts & Closes the Quotation, the Quotation’s time impact value will automatically populate into the Change Time impact field.
