Map and Clashes


Location and Work Area

You can indicate where a task will take place by assigning it a Location and marking a Work Area on the Map.

Each task can only have one Work Area. Each Work Area drawn must be a complete polygon.

View Work on the Map

You can see where your work will physically take place on the map.

  • By default, the map will reopen to the last position and zoom used.

  • If multiple tasks are taking place in the same work area, the number of tasks will be displayed on the map instead of just the name, which displays when there’s a single task.

  • By default, work areas on the map are colour-coded by their owner.

You can see a task list of the tasks taking place next to the map.

The task list will only show tasks that meet your view criteria, and the structure can not be reordered.


You can add extra information to your map with Layers.

Surrounding Work Areas

Show surrounding work areas will layer the work areas of all other tasks taking place simultaneously, regardless of the filters and view selected.

Hide surrounding work areas will hide all tasks that do not meet your chosen filters and view.

GIS Layers

If using the ArcGIS Integration, Locations can be created with up to 10 ArcGIS layers visible per Map. These layers can be individually toggled on or off to hide or reveal the information.

Base Maps

For Model Space Maps (Real World Maps), the Base Map is sourced from Bing Maps and can be toggled between Satellite, Street or None.


Customise your Map by selecting the colour of work areas in the Overlays menu.

Work area colour

Your work area colours can be chosen from the following options:

  • Owner

  • Subcontractor

  • Shift

Clashes toggle

Clashing tasks will appear in red on the Map, and can be switched on and off using the toggle in the Overlays menu.


Your tasks will clash if more than one task has an overlapping Work Area with another task planned to happen on the same dates and shift.

By default, clashing tasks are coloured red on the Gantt.

Tasks that have already taken place will not clash. On the Clashes Page, Clashes are grouped by Location.

Resolving clashes

You can resolve clashes in two ways:

  1. Mark a task as non-conflicting

    • If the user has a Standard role, they’ll need permission from the other task’s owner to resolve the clash

    • The tasks will not clash again, even if edits are made

  2. Changing the task’s start and end dates

    • Red cells on the Gantt means that moving the task to those dates will still result in a clash

    • Blue cells on the Gantt means that you can move the task there without causing a clash

You will only be prompted to resolve Clashes within your lookahead period.
