VisiSpecs Releases Major Updates to Keynote Management Application

Portl and, ME   February 26, 2020 – Chalkline, Inc. has released a major update to the VisiSpecs Keynote Manager responding to demand for spec integration and coordination and keynotes.  Working closely with users providing valuable input into the functionality, the update is available to all users in both VisiWord and VisiRevit applications.

Integrate and automate keynote selection with project specs with verification prior to submission of drawings.

Project Architects and Engineers have been manually typing text drawing notes which wasted a lot of time and did not provide any consistency in naming conventions.  Further delays and issues were found assigning keynotes to model elements and materials without basic features like search, comments, and the ability to edit keynotes on the fly. 

Additionally, the lack of coordination with the design specifications required manual and error prone coordination checking to determine which keynotes to provide the detailers.  Otherwise, detailers were easily selecting the wrong keynotes from the master list resulting in further errors and omissions.  Without automatic coordination with the project specifications, keynotes were a separate island of data to maintain with inevitable coordination errors introduced. 

Designers wanted a consistent set of approved annotations integrated with the project specs ensuring repeatable high-quality product delivered to Owners.  

Chalkline released the first available keynoting solution providing integration with the specifications, easy assignment to model elements and materials, and verification of placed keynotes on the drawings.  The VisiSpecs Keynote Manager is directly in Autodesk Revit or Microsoft Word which users already have installed and use rather than learning a new tool set.  Automatic filtering of master keynote files based on the project specifications provides huge time savings over manual processes.  Keynote comments assist management and detailers in tracking when and where certain keynotes should be used.  As the project specs and modeling phases continue, the VisiSpecs Keynote Management provides fast and easy coordination checks tracking which keynotes have been assigned and which have been placed on the drawings.

VisiSpecs Keynote Assigner saves time with included search, comments, editing, and selection features.

All customers under subscription have access to the Keynote Management functionality which is integrated into all VisiSpecs licenses.
