Objects Overview

In the ROCK App, most data that is not a single measurement or material is an Object.  Objects are located in Areas under the "Objects" tab and include:

  • Notes - Use notepad like utility to create punchlists, issues, or any kind of text notes
  • Pictures/Documents - Capture jobsite photos or documents to associate with an area
  • Annotations - take photos, documents, or blank canvas and annotate with lines and measurements
  • Calculator Outputs - calculator or utility outputs can be saved for further viewing
  • Inspections - Save custom inspection outputs 
  • Conversion Outputs - Convert units and save for reference
  • Groups - combine photos, notes, and documents to associate with a single group

Objects can be created in two primary ways.  By default, Objects will save to the last used Area but certain utilities allow for selection of save location.

  • Selecting the "+" Icon in the bottom right of the Object Grid screen (Notes, Pictures, Annotations, Groups, Conversions)
    • ROCK App make new object.png
  • Saving a calculator or utility output from the Utility tab

Objects preview icons appear in a grid format under areas once they are saved and include a title, when they were created, and .  In general, there are two primary object screens

  • Preview Object - When selecting a previously saved Object, a preview screen appears first to prevent accidental editing.
