What will happen to existing projects when this is released?
Sheet orders will not change. An admin will need to change the order by navigating to the new Sheet Order page.
When I go to the manage sheets order page, I see the discipline order but my sheets aren't ordered in that order.
Since this is the first time you have checked the manage sheets order page for that project, we made a best guess of what we think the order should be. Once you have made changes and everything looks correct, hit Save & Apply and wait to be redirected to the sheets page. Now you should see the sheets order updated.
If this is an old project with sheets previously uploaded, how does it "guess" my discipline order?
It takes into account the order of the sheets uploaded and also order of the sheets within the pdf. I.e. If a 500 page pdf was uploaded first, it would take into account the order of sheets in the pdf.
Are the prefixes case sensitive?
Right now, yes.
How is the prefix /discipline calculated?
It looks at the beginning alphabetical characters of the sheet number.
How can I order a sheet that starts with a symbol or number?
Currently, this is not possible. We cannot define a discipline that is non-alphabetical with the exception of the number zero (0). Sheets numbers that start with a number will be ordered alphanumerically after all other defined sheet order sheets, unless the sheets begin with a zero; the number zero is the only number that can be defined as a discipline.
How are the sheets with unmatched disciplines ordered?
They will be at sorted at the end after all other discipline defined sheets in alphabetical order.
i.e. I have sheets A1.01, B1.01, C1.01, D1.01 and the discipline defined is B and C only. Then the sheets B1.01 and C1.01 would display first in corresponding order and then A1.01 and D1.01 in alphabetical order as historically in PlanGrid.
Who can edit the discipline order?
Admins only; sheet order created by the admin is visible to all team members.
When I upload new sheets, why aren't my sheets ordered in the way they were uploaded?
We don't by-default add the disciplines of new sheets uploaded. You need to go to the manage sheet order page and add new disciplines where needed. The page will tell you what sheets are not ordered.
How long does sheet re-ordering take?
For most projects where the number of sheets is under 10,000 it should take a matter of seconds and definitely no more than a minute. If you have a large number of sheets, it may take longer.
Does the discipline sheet count only include the sheets in the current set?
What happens when I have a discipline C and CA?
Sheets that start with CA will be counted with CA. Sheets that start with C, but not CA, will be counted as C.
i.e. I have sheets C1.01, C1.02, CA1.01, CA1.02, CD1.01. C discipline will display 3 sheets, and CA discipline will display 2 sheets.
Why can't I delete the discipline?
You can only delete the discipline if there are 0 sheets matching that prefix.
How many characters is allowed for my discipline?
10 alphabetical characters max.
How many disciplines are allowed in my project?
There are no hard limits right now. However we do not recommend defining more than 100.
