Exporting Change-logs & Costing
Updated over a week ago

In collaborative teams, designers can work together on a model in Snaptrude. The activities carried out by each team member are automatically tracked and documented within the platform for convenient review. Any modifications made, such as adding or removing elements, copying furniture, and other actions performed by team members, can be exported for later review and analysis. This ensures transparency and facilitates effective collaboration among team members throughout the design process.

There are two ways of viewing these design changes on Snaptrude:

  1. Costing tab

In the costing tab users can keep a track of the project cost in association with the furniture, doors & windows that are added to the project. The costing tab can only be found in projects made on Snaptrude teams. All the elements added within the central library can have costs associated with them, which when later placed in the model will reflect in the project cost.

To view this cost tab, click on the “Costing” icon on the top right corner of the screen:

The top part of the panel shows a chart documenting the cost history of the project, and the bottom part documents the project's action history. Each line contains the element added to or removed from the project, the quantity of the element, and the cost implication of the same.

2. Export Changelog

Any changes made on the project can be exported to a CSF file. This CSV export enables you to study the historical costs of a project more flexibly along with data on who made the respective changes. Once exported, you can query this data, include additional information and present it to various stakeholders in the way your project needs.

Change logs can be exported from the project drop-down menu by selecting "Export Change Logs".

The change log title follows the project naming convention. It has a detailed history of the user, date of operations, group of elements, occurrences, operation (adding or removing elements), price per operation and the change in cumulative cost.
