Visualogyx API V1
This month, we are very excited to announce the launch of our Visualogyx Public API.

The Visualogyx API is a game-changer for seamless integration and data analytics. It allows an enterprise development team to sync a Visualogyx account with existing enterprise systems like ERPs and CRMs, eliminating data blind spots. Plus, you can build custom dashboards tailored to your KPIs by feeding data into your favorite analytics tools such as Metabase or PowerBI. And if that’s not enough, you can also develop bespoke applications to create unique business solutions that ramp up your team’s productivity. It’s all about providing businesses more control, visibility, and efficiency.

September 2023

Highlights

We are pleased to announce the release of two new features this month, aligning with our guiding principle of ‘verify and trust.’ With this update, when creating templates, you now have the ability to require users to upload content exclusively via the Visualogyx camera within the mobile app. Additionally, we’ve introduced source information for uploaded inspection photos, enhancing their verification.

These enhancements empower you to maintain vigilant oversight over how designated users upload photos to inspections, whether they are part of your team or third-party assessors. This ensures that all inspection photos are captured using the Visualogyx app camera and undergo thorough verification through our KYPit extra layer of checks for location, authenticity, source, and more.

We've added a template-level option to disable mobile file uploads.

When selected, users won't be able to upload files from their mobile gallery photos in the 'Files' section of inspections. To access this option, click the information icon at the top right in the template builder."

When capturing pictures during an inspection, we now include source information within the picture's details.

This information reveals the app used for uploading the picture (Web App, iOS app, or Android app) and the device's operating system (OS) version. To access this information, navigate to the 'Files' section of an inspection, select a picture, and click on the information icon at the top right of the preview.

New "Custom Reference ID" field in inspections

We've added a "Custom Reference ID" field to inspections for improved internal tracking and enhanced integration with external systems, work orders, or workflows. The ID is included in inspection reports (PDFs) and real-time activity report emails when used.

We released bug fixes and performance improvements to optimize the stability and user experience of the Visualogyx platform.

August 2023

Highlights

In August, we introduced a powerful new feature to our inspection management platform: Reminders for Inspection Assignments. With this enhancement, you can now configure reminder notifications to ensure that assignees stay on track and complete their inspections on time. This feature aims to streamline your inspection workflow and improve efficiency by providing timely reminders for task completion.

We added a new feature that allows setting email reminders for the inspection assignee until the inspection is marked as completed.

We added options in Organization settings to configure email reminders to third-party inspection assignees.

Roles for sharing inspections have been expanded, granting more flexibility in engaging with your team members and third-party inspectors. You now have the ability to assign three distinct roles:

  • Viewers
    This role allows individuals to access inspection details without making any modifications. It's perfect for those who need to review information.
  • Collaborators
    Collaborators possess the capability to make edits and updates to inspections. This role suits those who actively contribute to inspection data.
  • Assignees
    Assignees are responsible for completing inspections. With this role, you can ensure that designated individuals are reminded to complete the shared inspections and mark them as completed.

This expanded role framework empowers Visualogyx users to fine-tune access and responsibilities according to the needs of their team and collaborators.

We rolled out minor bug fixes and performance improvements to optimize the stability and user experience within the Visualogyx platform.

July 2023

Highlights

In July, we rolled out significant improvements to the sharing functionality in Visualogyx, enhancing the seamless and efficient assignment of inspections to third parties or external collaborators. Additionally, we introduced a new feature to prevent third-party inspectors from uploading images directly from their phone galleries instead of using the Visualogyx app. This new capability ensures that enterprise customers can enforce the validation of inspections by KYPiT, enhancing the accuracy and reliability of the inspection data.

We've added a setting at the template media control level to disallow image uploads from the phone gallery. This ensures data integrity and adherence to inspection protocols, including the requirement for images to be captured through the Visualogyx app. 

Introduced the ability to resend invitation emails for shared Inspections and Projects, promoting better collaboration and engagement with third-party collaborators.

Enabled the option to copy Inspection and Project links (URLs), facilitating easy sharing and collaboration through SMS or chat.

As part of our ongoing efforts to enhance user experience, we have revamped the “Settings” functionality on our web and mobile platforms.

We are confident that these changes will make it simpler and more efficient for our users to access the settings they need to customize their accounts and manage their teams.
