    Document management of the entire project needs to be added to D-Tools. Attaching cut sheets to products, which would then allow us to run a report to make job binders, training dox, and submittal sets.

    File management as part of design and sale is a huge strain on jobs. Each product should have the ability to have a cut sheet field, a user manual field, and a spec page field. This field is a file location, where D-Tools then copies/saves it to the server database. From there, a report that allows us to “build” a collection of these documents based on a check box of which products and which files.

    D-Tools next step as an INFOCOMM member should be to help integrators to be able to follow industry best practice on submittals, documentation, training docs; and this step starts with robust document management as part of design/sales

    Document submittals and revision management (not just .dlt revisions, but issue revisions)

    This is something that has a massive return for “little” investment. From what I’ve seen in the software you guys have most of the infrastructure in place for implementing something like this pretty easily. We have an item on our internal roadmap to create something to this effect based on exported DTools data but it would be exponentially better as an integrated solution.

    Absolutely. Being able to attach PDF’s to catalog items and then assembling submittal reports from those would be YUGE.

    Hey Dtools,
    We’re almost at a year and no response to this request? Is there any plan to add these features, or should we start switching to connectwise?

    Putting together another submittal package for a public bid job. Having this would save me approximately 4 hours on every job during estimation/design.

    Any update from D-Tools on this for SI18? I don’t see it mentioned on the little flyer that they were handing out at Infocommm…
