Labels Core Function: This button enters library mode, where all personal or shared labels are kept. This also contains the map and label search function

Label Creation

Add Photo/Image: Button to add a photo or image to a label using camera or photo library. The app needs access to the photo library to add photos from your library (requires permission).

Add PDF: Button to add PDFs to a label from personal drive. 

Add Voice Memo: Button to add voice memos to a label. Voice memos can be stopped or started at any time. Once complete, the entire voice message will automatically be stitched together. To add voice memos, the app needs access to the microphone (requires permission).

Add Text: Button to add text to a label. If a link is typed in (i.e., google.com), it will automatically turn into a hyperlink. Tap on the link to be automatically redirected to the respective web address. The BitRip app will not provide any warning if a user is redirected to another site.

Assign New label to a Project: Drop-down to put a new label into an existing project. This feature only appears if user is signed-in to an account and has created or is a member of a project. This feature will not appear if any of the above is not satisfied. Create an account to access the projects feature.

Title/Thumbnail: Tap on the title or thumbnail image to edit label’s upfront information.

Detail View Swipe: Swipe up to see a more detailed view of the label.

Notifications: Any time this ‘eye’ button appears, it toggles the notifications feature for this particular label. Blue means on. When turned on and highlighted blue, the user’s device will receive a notification anytime this particular label is scanned or edited. This feature is predominantly used for labels of high importance. To add a notifications feature, the app requires permission.

Share: Any time this ‘share’ button appears, it allows a user to share a label via messages, airdrop, or email. This is a quick way to rapidly share a label with another user who might not be in a position to scan the label in question. When sharing a label, it automatically gets added to the receiver’s library of labels.

Label Detailed View

Link/Template: Button to access Link/Template function. Link/Template is a rapid way to create a new label using an existing label; designed to minimize redundant data entry when making similar labels. ‘Link’ pastes an existing label onto a blank label, and both labels are permanently integrated (i.e., edits to one will automatically be made to the other). ‘Template’ pastes an existing label onto another, but both labels become completely independent following the paste (i.e., follow-on edits to one label will not affect the other).

Delete Label: Scroll to the bottom of a label to access the label delete button. Only the label’s creator can delete a label. Another user accessing the label will not see this option.

Label Creator: Shows label creator and time/date of label creation.

Label Content: This is a sample of label content. Content appears in chronological order, with the most recent content on top.

Language Toggle: Single tap button that converts text from English to Spanish and vice versa.

Edit/Delete Content: Enables a user to edit or delete their own content on the label. The feature is only available to the content’s creator. This button does not show up on content created by another account user.

Tags: Adding a tag puts important information upfront on a label (e.g., priority, urgent, working). Tags are a helpful way to sort through a library of labels (e.g., the user wants to see all labels tagged as urgent). Users can create any amount of custom tags.

Geolocation: This shows the last location where the label was scanned. Anytime a tag is scanned, the geolocation is automatically updated (i.e., city, state). Tap the map thumbnail to see a label’s location pin on a map. If required to refine a label’s location, the user can drag the map pin manually to a more refined location. Geolocation requires user permission to locate data.

Edit a Label’s Core Information: If necessary, a user can edit a label’s title, thumbnail image, or project assignment.

Exit to Previous Screen.

Label Logbook: This button accesses backend data underlying the label. Users can see a complete record of the label’s history. Information includes scans from every user, time/date and location, and each action taken on the label. No user (to include label creator) can edit this historical record. When accessing the label logbook, users can share the logbook via message, email, or airdrop. By doing so, users can export this logbook into an excel-friendly spreadsheet for further analysis.   

Label Library

Label Update Indicator: Blue dot appears when a label has an update not yet seen by the user.

Label Key Details: Shows label title, creator, and date of last update. Labels are sorted by recency of updates. Most recently updated labels appear on top. 

Label Tags: See note 23. Users can see tags appear in prominent positions on each label. If a label has multiple tags, the user can swipe to the left/right to scroll through all tags.

Library View Options: By default, user will see a complete list of all labels. If a user wants to refine the list to a given project, user can select the appropriate project from a drop down menu. This will subsequently show only labels under that project. The map-view will follow suit.  

Label Library List: This selected tab shows all appropriate labels in list format.

Label Library Map: This selected tab shows all appropriate labels in map-view format.

Label Search: Enables a user to search and find any particular label using basic search criteria. This search includes not only label titles, but also content, tags, label dates, users, content type (i.e., type in audio, see all labels with audio attachments). This search uses an ‘or’ function. Example of ‘or’ function: type in priority and inspection, user sees all labels that have either priority or inspection tags.    

Map View

 Label List Tab for Maps: Any label’s pin that falls in the map window above will be included in a list at the bottom. If the label’s pin no longer falls in view of the map above, it is removed from the label list tab below. This is another quick way to refine which labels you wish to see using the map’s zoom level and position as a refinement tool. Users can scroll through the label list and tap on each to get a more detailed view of the label in question.

 Label List Tab Swipe: Swipe up or down to control how much area the label list tab occupies. Swipe down to completely remove the list and get a full view of the map.

Label Pin: This shows the updated geolocation of each label. To see which label belongs to that pin, the user can either tap the pin or zoom in so that only that pin is within the map zoom level parameters.

Label Pin Grouping Bubble: To avoid clutter, any label pins within proximity will be grouped in a bubble. The number inside the pin indicates the number of labels within. To break out individual labels within a bubble, zoom in.

Projects Info

Invite Project Members: If you are a project admin, or have been given the rights to invite other members, you can invite them using this button. Once joined, members will have full access to every label in the project. Every label will also be added to each respective member’s personal library. So if an existing project has 30 labels, a new member will automatically add 30 new labels to their own library. This button is not visible to those without invite permissions. 

Manage Project Members: This button allows a project admin to remove any existing member from a project. A member can also remove themselves from a project using this same button.

Edit Project Settings: Only the Project creator has access to this button. Settings include the project name, privacy settings, member invite permissions, project blueprints/PDFs. This is also where a project creator can delete the project. If a project gets deleted, the labels under the project remain; they just become unassigned to a project or ‘free agents.’

 Project Blueprints/Map: The project creator can add any type of PDF (e.g., blueprints, map) to a project. Scroll left or right, tap to enlarge.   

Project Details: This shows all applicable details underlying a given project.

Go Back: Brings user back to list of projects.

Add/See Labels: This tab lets any user see all labels that currently fall under any given project.
