How it helps
When you create a project on Workyard you'll also get the additional benefit of a digital audit trail of everything that's happening on the job. This is handy to work out who was last on a work site, view notes collectively being shared on projects or monitor tasks being completed in real-time.
We'll automatically track for you:
• Team members entering & exiting geo-fenced locations
• New notes tagged tagged to locations or projects from tasks & time cards
• Completed Tasks
• Done check list items
• Not Done check list items
Alongside the activity, a link to the related project, task or time card is displayed for you to easily navigate to.
How to find the activity feed
Go to the projects menu item on the web or mobile
Click on the activity feed button
The project feed will open and display all the activities happening on your project
How to filter the activity feed
A filter button is available within the activity feed with the following categories:
• Date range
• Project & Location
• Team Members
• Task Labels
Within filter categories you can select multiple options and combine filter categories to get the precise results you're looking for.
FAQs & Troubleshooting
Who in my company can access the project activity feed?
Only Administrators and Managers can access the project activity feed. Managers will only be able to view activities to projects that they have access to.
I can't see the projects menu item or the activity feed option on my mobile app?
You'll need the latest version of the mobile app installed to get access to the latest updates on this feature.
If you are on the latest version, ask your Administrator to check that you are set as either an Administrator or Manager role type to get access.
My feed isn't displaying the latest results?
If left open the activity feed will not update with the latest results. To refresh the feed, close the panel and reopen it, or refresh the page.
Are there any limits on the amount of history that's kept?
No limits! We store every update that happens from the moment you create the project on Workyard. There are also no limits on how far back you can go to find past activity.
If I archive a project will I loose all the activity records?
No you will not. When you archive a project all the activity records associated to the project will be kept and available within the feed.
Some activity records that I could see before are no longer there. What's happened?
If you delete a related project, time card or task then all the connected activities will also be removed from the feed.
