Drawing Comparison on Mobile Need to be Available on Website also!
All those fancy things you can do with drawings in the mobile app like flip the drawing around, or realign comparison drawings needs to be available on the computer web version of Procore as well. Much easier to compare drawings on larger screens so that's where I could better use this feature instead of on a mobile device, although that is nice also.
Thank you for the feedback. We agree that the ability to compare drawings on the desktop app would be highly useful in finding changes on new drawings.
We are currently updating the Drawing Viewer in order to allow us to add powerful new features like comparison. We are interested in automatically detecting changes so that you won’t have to flip through each new revision in comparison mode, and we can then notify you when and where drawings have changed. Thank you for your patience.

This help with slab/foundation layout a ton

This will help immensely.

This is necessary and should be a huge priority. While convenient on mobile app, its harder to see and the web version should be a priority. PlanGrid does drawing comparisons well and this should too. Please move this up the priority chain.

I just tried to compare revisions yesterday, but for some reason everything was slightly moved by the architect on the page and it made trying to compare revisions essentially useless. This is a must have.

Bob Brown, we know that you can compare on the website.. But you can’t realign and can’t compare with another plan... All we can do actually is comparing a different version of the same plan. On the mobile app, we can compare two different plans and also realign them but it’s blurry when you make a screenshot since you can’t download the comparison on your mobile device. Overall this should be prioritized ASAP, in my opinion.

This would be incredibly helpful! Our field teams often pull up drawings on larger screens in the job trailer and currently we can't compare drawings, like structural to mechanical, or plumbing to electrical. Sure we can compare revisions, but we have to go somewhere like Bluebeam to do the other comparisons. It would be so much more time efficient and just easier to have the ability on the Procore platform.

In January 2018 and May 2019 this was reviewed and "prioritized for development" but in January 2020 this has changed to "Not prioritized for development".
Is it that difficult to be able to realign drawings?
When is this due to be reviewed again?
Bob Brown commented
Clearly no one from PROCORE reads these, because there is a work around for this and they just arent telling anyone. See the attached screenshot. There are two ways of doing this on the web. The bulk comparison is marginal at best, but the screenshot will take you to a good comparison on a page by page basis. I have also attached the weblink to this particular support item.

Why is this not a feature yet? We NEED this!!
Alison Mullen commented
The BEST way for PMS to do a drawing comparison is on a large enough screen to note all the changes (deletions and additions). The REALIGN Capability is a MUST! You should also be able to save and download the comparison file and be able to have a hard copy printed if necessary.
Drawing Comparison on Mobile Definitely needs to be on the WEBSITE ALSO!!

I agree that this is an essential functionality and should be available on all platforms.

Please add the ability to compare drawings on desktop
Todd Miller commented
This really is an important function best served to be performed on Procore on the web. We use this on projects with phased drawing releases, where we've bought out subcontracts on different versions of documents.

Trying to compare different revisions of the same drawings on web version and need to realign as the drawing has shifted on the page. I can do this on phone app but screen is too small to work efficiently on comparing multiple drawings.
Looks like this has been an issue for a while and has quite a lot of support so hopefully will be prioritized soon.

I’m turning off notifications for this this need upgrade. Unless it bim it’s not getting any attention.

I am trying to lead our project manager team to utilize Procore more than the other apps they are used to going to. The Drawings Tool has many great features that I believe add a lot of value. The problem is that the ability to compare drawings on the PC in Procore is so limited, they all still prefer to go to Bluebeam for reviewing and searching drawings. Which means they are missing out on the other great things Procore's Drawing Tool can offer. Until the tool is capable of performing drawing comparisons effectively, I'm not sure many of the team will feel inclined to change their habits and discover what new things Procore can help with.

This is a good idea and all, but they still have some very common sense changes they need to address that has been on this feedback forum for almost 10 years. For example, having the option of using business days vs calendar days. Column customization for Submittal Log, RFI Log, Change Events, etc. Directory's organized by Trade, Designers, Tenants, Property Management. And so much more.

Agreed, though the UI on the app is still a bit clunky and could also use improvement
