Quickstart

Create specs for a new project, and generate a PDF report to send to stakeholders.

Create a Project

  • Click Home in the top left corner of the screen, and then Projects.
  • Click New and enter the project information.
  • Click Save.
    The new project will automatically be opened, taking you to the Project Workspace.
    Here you can work on project-specific tasks and generate project reports.

Create an Area

  • Click Areas (while still in the Project Workspace).
  • Click New and enter the area name.
  • Click Save.
    You can now assign specifications to this area, and filter on this area when generating a report.

Create a Specification

  • Click Specifications (while still in the Project Workspace).
  • Click New select Fabric from the list of spec types.
  • Enter a unique code and description, and any other required fields.
    Required fields are indicated by an asterisk (*).
  • Select the area that you just created.
  • Click on Images in the navigation bar, and select some images from your local device.
    Your changes are automatically saved when navigating around the Specification Details window.
  • Click Close to get back to the specification list.

Generate a PDF Report

  • Click Reports (while still in the Project Workspace).
  • Click Full Page Spec to generate a new report with one specification per page.
    For very large reports, it may take a minute or two.
    You can always open another tab in your browser to DesignSpec, while you wait for a report to generate (usually by right-clicking or by holding Ctrl while clicking a link.)
  • Click Export and then select PDF.
    A PDF file will now be downloaded through your browser.
    For very large reports it may take a minute or two.
