The Present on Site section for Subcontractors on Daily Logs will now allow you to select Subcontractors who are in a position to have contracts awarded to them on the Award Subcontractors page. Previously, a subcontractor's contract needed to be locked before they would be available to be selected as Present on Site. This update was made to provide flexibility for GCs who may have a Letter of Intent but not a fully executed contract when work on site begins.

General performance improvements.
Easier to Use Navigation
We completely re-tooled how subs, engineers, architects, or owners will navigate through PASKR. After log-in users will notice a new way to move about PASKR. Users will no longer need to select a project and then a task. Rather, pick the task they ‘came here to-do’ followed by ‘for which project’.
A More App Like Experience
In conjunction with a new navigation users will now also have a more mobile app like experience. Every page is now 100% responsive. This means we created an optimal viewing experience with navigation, reading, and scrolling — across a wide range of devices. From mobile phones to tablets to desktop computer monitors.
Updated look & feel
In each module / task we completely renovated the look and feel. It should feel familiar but more modern and clean. You can expect the same features and functionality now with greater form. We’ve also provided greater context clues to address any confusion from users. Speaking of help… we’re are also rolling out a beta-preview of a brand new help system which you can preview here.
