Release notes

Version 2.8.0 - Sep 17th

We have now redesigned the documents page on each tag to make the documents easier to find. At the top, you will always find your 5 most recently viewed documents for this tag.

Recently viewed documents

Version 2.7.0 - Sep 03rd

We have completely redesigned the top bar and side menu. On the desktop: click the menu icon in the top left-hand corner to expand and see the descriptions for each item.

New side menu

We have also updated how elements load on the tag overview page to reduce the chance of clicking the wrong button.

Version 2.6.0 - Aug 22nd

Based on your feedback, we have redesigned the desktop search dropdown to accommodate long text fields. Happy searching!

Version 2.5.0 - Aug 14th

Properties page

We have redesigned the properties page, and you can now set your favorite properties to stay at the top of the page. The favorites are shared between tags, so you don't need to favorite the same properties for all tags.

New properties page

Minor fixes

We've removed unnecessary scroll bars from many sections and pages (showed up on Windows PCs only), fixed issues with trend charts that displayed aggregate values instead of raw values at some zoom levels, and many more.

Version 2.4.0 - Jul 31st


We've seen how intrusive the notifications could be in situations with varying WiFi quality, and have redesigned how the notifications work. Confirmations show as a small grey single-line message (for example, "checklist deleted"), while important issues show as full-width, horizontal bars.

New notifications

Image performance

Uploading of images has been a massive success, with thousands of images uploaded so far. Pages with many high-quality images could cause the app to fail, but we have now improved the performance. We'll continue improving the performance in the coming releases.

Checklist performance

When many users each had many checklists, the app would sometimes load slower. The app now loads with the same speed regardless of the number of checklists.

Version 2.3.1 - Jul 15th

The scanner function is improved

We've rolled out to customers and assets that have a very different tag and nameplate structures. To improve tag scanning, we have made a separate tag scanning workflow to better support these cases. This change does not affect tag scanning at plants where the functionality already worked well.

Version 2.3.0 - Jul 9th

New loading screen

We've introduced a new loading screen in line with Cognite brand identity.

Trend y-axis now handles large numbers better

When a time series y-axis range had large numbers (typically 10.000 and higher), the charts could look cluttered. We are now displaying large numbers by shortening them to 10k for 10.000, and 1M for 1.000.000.

New loading screen and improved trend axes

Version 2.2.0 - Jun 26th

Delete checklists warning

We've received feedback that it was too easy to unintentionally delete checklists that others were still working on. You now get a warning if you try to delete a checklist that others could still be using. The logic remains the same: if you created a checklist, you can delete it, but that makes the checklist unavailable for others. If you did not create the checklist, you can not delete it (but you can choose to leave the checklist).

Manage multiple checklists

It is now easier to switch between multiple checklists on mobile devices. Click the checklist title to pull down a list of checklists and select the checklist you are looking for.

Version 2.1.0 - Jun 11th

Multiple states on checklist items

Checklist items can now have multiple states. When you are collaborating with others about a checklist, you can, for example:

  • Use a "started" state to prevent others from starting on the same items.

  • Use multiple states to control progress (for example, "started", "started in field", "finished in field", "completed")

Multiple states in checklists

Version 1.37.0 - May 22nd

Tag description in checklists

We've received feedback that checklist items were difficult to relate to without the description field. We've updated the way we show tags in checklists to include the tag description field.

Pre-fixes in checklist items

To make it easier to add tag-based checklists from certain other systems, you can now add checklist items with prefixes. For example, if your work management tool (e.g., SAP or Workmate) uses a prefix for each tag (MyPlant-21PT1019), you don't have to remove the prefix in Excel or other tools before you create a checklist. You can paste the tag list, including the prefixes, directly into the tag field.

Clicking other tags in the 3D view

We have fixed an issue where it could be a problem identifying tags when clicking on another asset in the 3D view. It is now easier to click nearby tags and find out what the item is or navigate to the tag directly.

Checklists now include the name of who checked it (desktop only)

When you collaborate with others, it can be convenient to see who has performed each task. On the desktop, you can now see who checked an item and also when the item was checked. The information is also included when you export the checklist to PDF.
