Sketch is a simple drawing tool with all the options you need to complete diagrams, inspections, reports, and more in the field.

You can access the Sketch feature if the document that you are using has a graph area.

If your document does not have a graph section, you can add the Plain Graph document in your library.

To add the Plain Graph document, go to Settings > Documents > Browse existing library > Activate Plain Graph then SAVE

Once you have this added to your library, add this document on any job by using the + button next to Documents on your mobile app, then add the Plain Graph document.

When accessing any image or graph in your app, you'll have the ability to choose Sketch as an option.
