Lack of on-site, contemporaneous documentation
From Builder Resources
First, you can make a hard copy of the report. These copies would be kept in the job binder, in sequential order.
At least one entry will be made for each active job per day. If no one from your firm was at the jobsite that day, the entry would reflect that. More likely, you would use the form to document the work done on the site that day. Use a separate line for each trade involved, and be certain to comment on what took place.
Use as many of these forms as necessary for each project.
The second option, available in the same download, is an electronic version of the hard copy.
Download the file to your computer for each project. Rename the file and save to Dropbox (or other cloud platform). In the Anderson Project file, name the file something like DPR-Anderson-YY-MMDD.
Then call the file up at the jobsite or back at your office and make the appropriate entries.
Imagine having the daily job activity entered every day by your superintendent and available to you in real time, seconds after the entry is made.
Imagine your designer able to put product changes on-line for immediate update.
Imagine knowing that every important activity on every job is being updated moment by moment by your entire organization.
It’s possible using the free version of Asana.
The Daily Progress Report is filed every day on every active job. The process shown here gets the time required to make the report down to about a minute per job. With that kind of efficiency, and with how important the information is in terms of litigation risk management, there is just no excuse for neglecting to file the Daily Progress Report on every active job every day.
This lesson only covers the use of the Daily Progress Report feature in Asana. Find much more information about using the Asana platform for project management in the Builder Academy courses below.
