BJJBass ,

Mostly good. Few issues but most software has that

Use it daily for work and the apps usability is pretty close to perfect and usually works smoothly. My biggest issue is the lack of ability to edit or remove pictures and notes from albums. Once it’s there it’s there for good. I’ve had times where the app auto loads into the last album I had open and unintentionally uploaded photos to that album that were meant for another. Now if I could delete said images and reupload them to the correct album I’d have no complaints. That extends to albums themselves. The ability to remove them in case of duplicates or errors in input would make this a 5 star app easily. Really the only “workaround” is adding notes to specific images noting that they are in the incorrect album which makes things confusing when you’re working a larger project that has thousands of photos.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for the review and feedback! We are currently working through a complete rebuild of our photo solution from a mobile perspective and would love to run the design by you. If you find some time, please reach out to and let’s set up a time.

Fix picture uploading!

It takes forever to upload pictures and the biggest problem is it lets the phone sleep while uploading and kicks you completely out of the app. Then you have to resign in and start all over. Find the job log in and start uploading again. If you can sometimes it freezes and won’t allow any more pics uploaded. Then you have to make another file and try to upload again. And the process repeats. In documents it will stay open for hours but pic quits in less than a min unless the uploaded babysittits the program and doesn’t allow the phone to sleep. For companies like ours that depend on photos for insurance companies. We can only ask technicians to upload photos but they can’t be blamed when the software kicks them out before the upload is completed.

Has Improved Over Years, But Still Has A Way To Go

I’ve used this app enough years to see that it has improved, but there is still a way to go. It’s extremely difficult to look through job notes, because the preview is so small you have to open each note to really see anything. The recently introduced tags (and already existing job alerts) are not visible in the mobile app, so making a tag like “Do Not Use Customer Restroom” doesn’t do much good, since field workers on Dash Mobile are the ones that really need to see that. I do like the ProAssist feature, but would prefer the notes created by using that were separate from the job notes, due to the aforementioned limited note view on mobile.
