Some of the most important functions of a good construction management software are project management, scheduling, construction time tracking, crew management, and payroll processing.

In today’s piece, we’ll take a look at one such good construction management software program  called Assignar, that is used by the top companies in the construction arena.

What is Assignar?

Assignar is a state-of-the-art construction software that leads the industry and equips you with an unrivaled capacity to govern your projects and teams, as well as take care of compliance requirements and grow your business at an incredible pace. This cutting-edge software was built with the express purpose of meeting the needs of construction professionals and making their workflow more efficient.

Because of its user-friendliness and extensive feature set, Assignar is used by a lot of seasoned professionals in the sector.

Assignar also provides its users with a mobile application known as Fieldworker, which allows employees to check in and check out of work as well as complete other paperwork that, without this software, would need manual work.

How do I get started?

You can get started by importing data. To import data, first choose the Settings option located on the left navigation tab. Next, select the “Assisted Import” option from the drop-down menu that appears.

You will see a list of the data types that are accessible along with the ability to upload them when you go to the Assisted Data Import page. In addition to this, there is a status indicator that will inform you whether or not that particular data type has already been added, as well as the total number of entries that have already been added.

With the use of an audit log, you are able to determine which user was responsible for the most recent upload as well as the time that it took place.

Following that, you will be prompted to choose the data type that you like. The following kinds of data are at your disposal: fieldworker, equipment, clients, and activities.

After selecting the data type, click the button “Upload.” You may be required to specify the format of elements such as dates or phone numbers, which may be different depending on the area of your company.

Click “Upload Data” from the File menu, then select the.xlsx or.csv file that you want to upload.

Following the completion of the data uploading process, you will be required to align data columns. On the screen that says “Match Data,” you’ll see a list of all the columns that are in your data file. 

The system will try to match the columns from your file to the probable fields in Assignar by taking into account the names of the headers as well as the types of data that are included within the columns.

Confirming the mapping choices or remapping the column is as simple as clicking the edit button, choosing an alternative Assignar field, and then clicking the confirm button. Click the review button to do a last check on your information before submitting it after all of the columns have been verified.

The data will be examined by the system to see if there are any discrepancies that need to be resolved before the import is performed. The system will search for any missing data that may be useful. After you have made all of the necessary corrections to the data, choose the option to “proceed” to upload it to your Assignar account.

What are the different types of users and how to create them?

Assignar caters to two distinct categories of users:

1. Dashboard users: To add new users to the dashboard, go to the left-hand menu and click Resources. From there, pick Dashboard Users. Clicking this link will take you to the page where you can add new users, as well as see the list of current users and make changes to their profiles.

Find the option that says “+ Add New Dashboard User” and choose it.
