  • Share Views by adding assignee 
  • Update and sync View across all clients

3. Status Sharing 

  • Status Sharing is now available from the right panel in the new 3D Viewer.



4. File download UX consistency 

  • File download behavior in the Views tab is made consistent with the behavior in the Data Tab


Known Issues (Shall be fixed in the next phase)

  • Android 6, 7 devices may face issues with Object link creation from Camera . We are working to fix this. New
  • View parity issues exist in the color, transparency, selection states across clients.
  • Models with more than 2500 object links tend to make the model render slower. We are aiming to optimize this in a subsequent release.
  • Parity issues can be found in the visualization of the markups and measurements.
  • Markup and Measurement selection might be tedious
  • Embedded views might get listed in the views list screen.
  • Views that are created from TCM after hiding the model will not be reflected properly in other clients. On launching this view in TCM, the show / hide model won’t be reflected properly. User has to tap “Show all” to view all the models on screen.
  • Size of the measurement values might be bigger in tablet devices.
  • Models with a large number of objects might not be rendered properly while performing Pan/Zoom operations in the model viewer.
  • There might be parity issues with respect to View visualization across clients for features related to Orthographic projection and Global transparency.
  • Slowness is observed while displaying the “Statuses” option in the right dragger of the model viewer screen.
  • There might be delay in reflecting status action in timeline mode 
  • Some mismatch could occur in start and end date of the status actions in Timeline mode 
  • It takes longer time for the progress bar to complete, in case of a long list of projects.
  • Occasionally, an empty thumbnail is displayed for “Todo” attachments.
  • View updated by deselecting/unhiding all the objects is not updated properly.
  • Views are not deleted from the server even after the associated ToDo is deleted. But users will be able to delete views after detaching from ToDo.
  • Download initiates taking more time when we launch in WebGL Viewer [~10 secs]
  • Edit hint text not displayed for Vertical clip-plane
  • Multi selection object views are not displayed as a selection state in the new 3D viewer for specific devices(iPad)




Known Limitations

  • GlobalIDs that are received from assimilation does not match between TCM/TCW/TCD. Due to this links created will not be visible across clients for non-Ifc formats. 
  • Measurement values will be displayed with the accuracy up to 1/10th position in “Millimeter” unit.
  • Offline Logout - User cannot log out in offline mode since the browser cannot be launched without an internet connection.
  • Occasionally, on loading large model files onto the 3D viewer, application crashes (or) gets into not responding state, due to memory constraints
  • File size displayed on the Mobile app may be different from the actual file size uploaded to the Connect server. 
  • UI in tablets is shown in compatible mode.
  • Layer list is inconsistent on creating or showing views shared across platforms.
  • Sometimes empty thumbnails are shown for files where assimilation is not completed.
  • Image attachment from the camera/Gallery occasionally gets rotated 90 degrees after sync.
  • Some performance glitches were seen in a few screens when we opened existing ToDo’s.
  • App may crash occasionally during first launch of projects.
  • For first time launch, if the region is changed , a manual refresh will be needed for the projects list to display.
