Submit Your Suggestions for Viewpoint Team

Allow multiple types of Submittals to be checked when entering to cut down on repeat data entry.

If there was a  way to select multiple types of submittals this would help cut down on multiple data entry. For instance: when creating a submittal, you can check submittal, Shop drawings, and O&M, which would create multiple entry's with the same tile and the same person/company responsible party.

    One way I've found to work around this is to note the submittal numbers of everything you are submitting in one package in the comments or within the submittal itself and close out the remaining items at one time. Using your example, if you send "submittal", "shop drawings", and "O&M" in one package all together in the "submittal" item, you can close out shop drawing and O&M in your register using the "Actions" button and note that these two items are submitted in "submittal"

    It's faster and cleaner than doing double/triple/etc. entry for a big submittal package, but I do agree that being able to group the items together during the original submission would be much faster. This could be done either by Spec Section, Package, Contractor, etc.
