Updates and Enhancements: Cartegraph Spring 2020

We’re super excited to announce the Cartegraph Spring 2020 release. From dashboard gadget and price quote updates to simplified key date entry and—drum roll, please—request management in Cartegraph One, we’ve worked hard all winter to help you kick your high-performance operations into overdrive.

Dashboard Gadget Updates

The gang’s all here, folks. Compare multiple labor, equipment, material, and other costs in a single bar or column chart—and use your supercharged gadgets to make smarter decisions for your team, department, and community.

  • Select up to eight Measured By fields in a bar or column chart gadget type.
  • Measure data by similar field types to visually compare totals.
  • Start using immediately with two new default gadgets available in the Gadget Library
    • Resource Costs by Department for Tasks Completed this Month 
    • Resource Costs by Department for WO's Completed YTD
  • Existing bar and column chart gadget types can be edited to take advantage of this update.
  • With the Spring 2020 Service Pack, bar and column chart gadgets are more flexible and no longer require a Group By.

Key Date Update

Wish you had one less thing to do? Boom. Now you can update key date fields without creating a task. Simply enter the Install, Replace, or Retire date manually—or import the data directly from ArcGIS—to start managing your assets more effectively and efficiently.

  • Easily add and update key date fields on any asset without using a task.
  • This update includes populating these fields by importing data or syncing with GIS.
  • The system still supports populating key date fields with a corresponding task but is no longer required.
  • Remove confusion around when an asset is replaced, now that the Replace date is no longer populated with the initial Install date.

Use Material Price Quotes for Non-stock Items

Everyone likes having options. Ping-pong or foosball. Dark roast or light roast. Tacos or taco pizza. That’s why you can now choose between multiple price quotes for non-stock materials. Whether you select a vendor based on price per unit, jobsite proximity, or material availability, you’ll have easy access to accurate and up-to-date resource data.

  • Quickly add material costs to a task for non-stocked items by using Price Quotes.
  • While entering resources, if a vendor is selected for a non-stock material, the price is now populated if there is a valid price quote in the system.
  • The primary vendor is still the default selection, but easily select a different vendor with a price quote and the price updates automatically.
