I agree with Tremain Roseman, dailies should be completed by the super or foreman in the field, not the construction manager.However, when it comes to the time that you should be filling out the daily report, I’d say “as it happens.” Newer daily reporting apps, such as Raken, allow you to complete your dailies throughout the day instead of waiting for the end of the day. Filling out dailies as the events happen onsite improve the overall accuracy of your report, since you don’t have to recall everything that happened at the end of the day.For instance, if a safety incident happens in the morning, pull out your phone and write down all the details right there and then. Finish one aspect of the project? Snap a picture in the app and it will be automatically added to the daily. Then, at the end of the day, all you need to do is review the report and sign.Accurate dailies are critical to protecting your firm from potential litigation. Another benefit of using daily reporting software is that it will actually save you time. For example, Raken automatically captures weather on your daily report three times a day, has a voice-to-text feature so you can take notes as you walk the jobsite, and automatically syncs with the office so you’re no longer dealing with paper dailies.
