As 2022 comes to a close, we thought we’d take a moment to reflect on all the improvements that have been put into InField this year. From small bug fixes to big feature releases, from requests from Hub to user research sessions in person, many of you have contributed to make InField the best it can be for all its users.


Throughout the year, InField has been updated with a total of 30 updates packed with user-centered functionality and improvements – and at the same time, the InField team is rebuilding the foundational backend, which sets us up for 2023 and beyond. 


Users can expect to see major improvements to performance, much improved 3D- and file-viewing, better scheduling of checklists and more capable templates. While we’re working on that, here are some of the improvement and additions the team has made in 2022:

  • Added progress indicator labels to all sections and subsections on checklists

A big thank you to everyone who has contributed to InField in one way or another this year – your input really makes a difference, and we could not have shipped so many great updates without your help and input along the way!


We hope you have had a great start to 2023, and we look forward to continuing to make InField even better. We’ll keep you posted here on Hub as usual.


Happy New Year from the Cognite InField team
