Chalkline Releases Major VisiSpecs v20.2 Update

Portland, Maine (September 16, 2020) – Chalkline has released a major upgrade to VisiSpecs, The Visual Specification System, in multiple areas of the products and user management.

Keynote Management and Assignment have been very popular with customers needing to improve efficiencies and identify coordination issues easier. VisiSpecs v20.2 updates the Keynote Management with a new Keynote File Manager giving customers the ability to track keynote files with user and version information, new user access restrictions, and streamlined new project setup.  The VisiSpecs Keynote Manager includes customer-requested features such as Approval status for management overseeing keynote selection and verbiage, easier new keynote creation, and multiple new user interface improvements.

VisiSpecs Keynote Manager simplifies management with powerful spec integration and drawing coordination tools.

In addition to the management of keynotes and keynote files, the VisiSpecs v20.2 applications include assignment and verification tools enabling customers to streamline their processes even further.   Selection of keynotes for assignment, approval of keynotes, and user roles for managing versus assigning keynotes facilitates improved product design and delivery. With keynote management in Autodesk Revit as well as Microsoft Word, managers can now review a selection of keynotes and their drawing assignment and placement improving design quality. VisiSpecs’ new Zoom to keynote feature makes it fast and easy to review and correct keynote assignment, placement, and missing keynotes enabling easier verification and access to data.

Document Parameters have been added which enable customers to better manage and report on criteria such as document volume, reviewer, issue dates, discipline, and user-defined parameters with easy assignment, viewing, selection, and reporting on parameters.  Additional user-requested features such as new user roles, user management, simplified project access, Split Face linking to specs for finishes, the ability to restore deleted projects, document filter automation improvements, BIM 360 doc management support, and improved Newforma Submittal integration.
