To download Bauhub app, open App Store on your iOS device and search for "Bauhub". If you have found the application, click on "Get" button and confirm that you want to install the application on your device. Once the Bauhub app is installed, you can open it from your device.
Bauhub iOS app is based on Bauhub web service. iOS app itself is a bit simplified version of the web service to make sure you can best use functionalities that are most needed on the go: view drawings, documents, manage tasks and sign documents. However, if you compare the app with the web service in whole, then you can notice that we've removed some of the functionalities from the app.
First of all, it would be really uncomfortable (or even impossible) to do everything from your mobile app. E.g. filling out all of the documentation or uploading a zip-file is probably not what you are looking for from the app.
Secondly, keeping core functionalities in the spotlight makes it easier to use them and therefore you can better focus on what's really important on the site.
However, you can take advantage of the your mobile device itself by using device memory to cache any file you opened and therefore work offline without any data coverage.
But, in case you'd like to access Bauhub web service's full functionalities then you can always access Bauhub through your mobile browser. Open you preferred browser, go to https://app.bauhub.ee, sign in and you can now harness Bauhub in full. All of the views are also mobile-friendly.
Locate Bauhub app from your iPhone/iPad and open it and sign in using your username and password, just like you would sign in to Bauhub from your browser.
Upon your initial log in, you can see that you haven't yet chosen any project to work with. Click on the menu in the left corner and choose your preferred project. Now you can see Bauhub functionalities listed in the bottom menu — drawings, documents, workboards and signing.
Placed in the middle of the menu is the camera icon, which opens up your device camera (or gallery) and lets you snap pictures and create tasks instantly.
The workboard icon opens a view where you can switch between workgroups from the top right. Tasks are displayed by status (to do, in progress, needs approval, done) and you can switch between them from the upper menu. You can also filter, sort and search tasks. "Plus" icon is another way for creating a new task.
Both "Drawings" and "Documents" menus open your file folders accordingly and you can the same functionalities under both of them. To add new files (or pictures from the camera/gallery), click on the "plus" icon on the top right corner. Icon with three dots opens file/folder editing menus. In case you hit the icon of a folder, you can also see the option for downloading its content to your device memory to use it even when offline. Every file you open, is automatically cached to the memory as well.
In the "Invitation" menu you can view the documents that are waiting for your signature and the documents that you have already signed with an invitation.
Bauhub app allows you to view many file formats directly within the application. Without additional applications, you can view images, PDF's, most Microsoft Office files and .txt files.
Additionally, you can view any other files if you have a third-party application that can open it. For example, if you have an app on your device that opens .IFC files, you can easily open it from Bauhub. Click on the "three dot" icon and select "Share/Open" from the menu. This will first download the file to your device and you can then choose your preferred action from the next menu).
PS! We are currently working on the app to support more file types directly within Bauhub as well.
