Hello,

 

first off sorry for my bad englisch.

We are a construction company and about 6 months ago we startet using Teams in the company.

At this moment the main users are our calculation division and administration and, as far as I can tell, it is working.

these people mainly use WORD/EXCELL documents or documents from our ERP system wich allows interaction.

 

I am one of the projectleaders and we work on site using a laptop and tablet.

Since our projects our getting bigger and bigger we have decided to also provide our foreman with a tablet and teams to provide a quicker and better response time.

 

for normal documents it is working fine, and also for viewing the scale drawings it is usefull, but here we find a problem.

it is sometimes necessary  to make notes or sketch something on the drawing and we can not find a way to do this in Teams?

 

is there a way to draw in a PFD drawing?

 

I hope a make any sence

 

Ronny

Hi @Ronny_No, what sort of tablet?

 

If it's an iPad the Office or OneDrive mobile app will allow you to annotate PDF files. If it's Windows then I think there is a version of Adobe Reader that supports annotation. The web preview in Teams client doesn't support annotation.
