Sherlock has a new batch Rename feature and a lot of work has been done to the Area feature, making it much more stable. We’ve really doubled down on Daily’s documentation, and added quick links to tutorials for how to use Daily all throughout the platform. You can now also pick the time of the day you want your Daily reports to go out. No longer are you stuck with 8am!

Check out the new Rename feature! It can batch rename clashes that are selected in the clash detective. You can add custom prefixes or suffixes to the selected clashes or inject Area names, Level information and/or much more.
Here’s a quick demo video to get you started: https://youtu.be/zJwDXDie8-8
Grid intersection group name template tag 🙂🤓
You can now add the closest grid intersection to your group names by adding it to your group name template in settings. If you haven’t set up a group name template yet check out what you’re missing by opening the settings dialog today! You can have Distill add a lot of useful information right in the name of the groups it creates.
Hidden license keys 🙈
License keys are no longer visible after they are entered in the license manager to keep them private. They also can no longer be copied from the license manager to allow IT teams to place them on computers without exposing them to the end user.
- Fixed issue with Orient’s auto clipping plane feature that was causing the clipping plane to be set too low and hiding items.
- When drawing an area you can now zoom and pan without the area moving around.
- Fixed an issue where areas drawn on the Lowest Bound were not showing up on the screen.
- Various bug fixes with saving settings to the model file.
- Fixed issues with saving settings in models that had test and/or set names with special characters in them.
- Fixed an issue with Orient causing it to crash sometimes if items were underground.
- Fixed an issue causing Distill to not open if a test had very large group numbers.
- Fixed an issue where clashes below the lowest level (or above the highest level) were not getting tagged with the area name when distilled.

Set when you want your daily report to be sent out 🗓
Since the beginning, Daily reports have typically gone out to your project team members and collaborators around 8am EST. Now, this is configurable via the Project Admin. Under your Daily settings simply select which time of day you want your reports to go out and we’ll send them for you.
Set your project location using a longitude, latitude, or what3words address. 🧭
It’s not uncommon for a new construction project to not have a valid address. You can now specify a longitude and latitude and we’ll take that instead. We will also accept a what3words address. We’ll even create a what3words address for you automatically!
In 2.7 we released our history every wherefeature, allowing you the ability to see changes in Daily, your Project Admin or even your Hub Admin. Some projects were unable to view their history. We’ve fixed this issue. Let us know what else we can do here!
We’re always hard at work squashing bugs! All of them from this milestone were minor and aren’t worth wasting your time with.
Improved display of overlapping activities in the timeline 📊
Previously, PlanScan displayed activities which had overlapping start/end dates in a way that was a bit confusing. Planscan now no longer shows activities overlapping over eachother, simplifying the activities timeline.
Can now select any text shown in list view
It used to be impossible to select text in listview in order to copy it because the activity would open as soon as you clicked to start the selection. Now you can easily select any text in the list view without opening the dialog.
