Updated the job daily reports and EOW report to handle scenarios where the day's starting and ending depth are different but there wasn't any drilling done on that day.
Item Fix
Realtime: Toolface Display
Resolved a problem with the Realtime toolface display not showing any markers.

8/12/2019

Feature
Job Daily Activities Customizations
The job's daily activities have been completely updated so that individual activities can be configured and setup on a per-job basis. In addition to this, when activities are added to a job, users have the ability to specify/override if the specific activity should contribute to circulating (off bottom) hours, rotating hours, sliding hours or NPT. Together these improvements provide the ability to fully customize and fine tune the daily activities for each job and ensure that hours and NPT time are accurately accounted for on each BHA. For more information or to set this up for your asset workflow, please contact support@drakewell.us.
Feature
Drakewell Collision Avoidance - Beta
The anti-collision functionality has been updated and expanded to now include our separation factor feature set. This is the beta release so you will continue to see improvements in the coming weeks, but we wanted to get it out to our customer base as we know this is a highly anticipated feature! As part of the new anti-collision functionality, data validation for magnetic qualifiers and latitude has also been updated to ensure reasonable values. It is possible that existing data fell outside these ranges, which could result in an error while calculating anti-collision. For more information on this new functionality please see our Drakewell's Collision Avoidance blog post.
Improvement
Auto-Complete Fields
Disabled the browser auto-complete functionality for various fields throughout the system where it doesn't make sense to show previously entered values.
Improvement
BHA Distance Drilled
The method to calculate the distance drilled for a BHA has been modified so that instead of being the difference of the BHA's Depth Out and Depth In; it is now based off the sum of all rotates and slides that occurred between the BHA's Date/Time In and Date/Time Out. This allows for accurate distances when the same BHA is used for the original hole and sidetracks.
Improvement
Billing Item Type Quantity 'Per Week' and 'Per Month'
A new 'Per Week' and 'Per Month' Quantity Type has been added as an option for Billing Item Types.
Improvement
Decimal Place Precision
Various fields have been updated throughout the system that needed extra precision for the information they were collecting.
Improvement
Login Help Info
When logging into Drakewell, helpful information is now displayed about the credential requirements (i.e. user names are case-sensitive, etc.).
Improvement
Job Day Numbers
How job day numbers are set has been modified so that for each 'Day Block' in the job day selector, if there is an activity on that day, then that day will be counted as a job day and have a number set regardless of the day's status (i.e. active or standby). The only exception to this would be if there were not any activities on that day because nothing occurred on that day that indicated it was an active or standby day.
Improvement
NPT Time
The BHA's NPT is now auto-calculated based off the daily activities that occurred while the BHA was down hole and filled in when using the 'Refresh Activity Data' functionality on a BHA.
Improvement
Realtime: Remembering The Selected Dashboard and Toolface
The previously selected dashboard and toolface are now remembered and automatically set when navigating away and then back to the Realtime section.

Work Order Assemblies
The same asset can no longer be selected multiple times for different components of the same asset type on work orders.
Improvement
Work Order Technicians
The work order information displayed in an asset's history has been expanded to provide additional details without having to view the work order. Work orders will now show who created the work order, the Technicians that added time to the work order (through the time tracking functionality) and who the last person to complete the work order was.
Item Fix
Analytics: Slide, Rotate and Survey Analytics Stream Fixes
Fixed a issue where changes to the hole section classifications or other well path properties would not properly update well path related properties in the slides and rotates or the survey analytics streams.
Item Fix
Job's Without Job Numbers
Eliminated a specific scenario where a job could potentially be created without a job number being assigned to it.
Item Fix

Improvement
Analytics: Information in a Job's Time Zone
New fields have been added to all tables that contain the date/time for an item in the job's time zone (in addition to the current date/time in UTC for each item).
Improvement
Analytics: Work Order Additional Information
New fields have been added to the work order table that contains the life hours, service hours, repair cost, hours adjustment and reference number for a specific work order if applicable. A new work order table has also been added that contains all of the assets that are effected or referenced on a work order (i.e. component assets on an assembly).
Improvement
Toolface and Convergence Angle Values
Based on customer feedback, the Toolface and Convergence Angle fields have been updated to support entering and displaying values from 0° to 180° and 0° to -180° as this is the more common way it is represented. If a value greater than 180° is entered, then it will be automatically converted to the corresponding value between 0° and -180°.
Item Fix
Personnel Utilization
Corrected an issue on a previous update that caused the Personnel Utilization section to throw an error and not load.
Item Fix
Scheduling Personnel
Fixed an issue where personnel could not be scheduled to a job, depending on the job's start date in correlation with a field hand's hire date.

04/25/2019

Feature
Daily Activities Include BHA Information
The Daily Activities tab(s) include a new column that shows when specific BHAs were down hole and for what activities. This helps to prevent data entry mistakes by visibly lining up BHAs and their Date/Time In and Out with the correct activities. Clicking on a BHA will open a modal window where the BHA's Status, Date/Time In and Out, Depth In/Out and Hours can be viewed or adjusted without having to navigate to the BHA's details page. Within the BHA modal you can choose to refresh the BHA's activity data which will re-calculate the BHA Run Summary information automatically and take you to the BHA's details page for review.
Improvement
Asset History Updates
If an asset was added and then subsequently removed from a BHA, shipment or work order; that action is now recorded and shown in the asset's history. When an asset has been added to a BHA but that BHA doesn't have a Date/Time In specified, the BHA will show as Staged in the asset's history.
Improvement
Realtime: Not Enabled on Job
The static image that is displayed for a job when Realtime isn't enabled has been updated so that it is more obvious that it isn't actual data.
Item Fix

Updated how mobile attachments are handled for iOS devices so that multiple photos can be taken and added to Drakewell without overwriting the previously uploaded photos.
Item Fix
Creating a Job
Corrected an error that would occur when attempting to create a job and entering Hole Size and Magnetic Qualifier Tracking information.

03/27/2019

Feature
Deleting Assets
To help in situations where an asset was accidentally created with the wrong serial number or asset type, if the asset has only been initialized in the system and doesn't have any other history (i.e. other work orders, shipments, etc.), it can now be deleted.
Improvement
Asset History - Canceled Shipments and Work Orders
When a shipment or work order is canceled, it will now be sorted and displayed in the asset's history based off the original Completed At date (for work orders) or Shipped/Received date (for shipments) instead of the Canceled At date.
Improvement
BHA Report Improvements
The Directional and MWD BHA Reports now include the BHA's Avg Slide ROP, Avg Rotate ROP and Incident Notes.
Improvement
Directional Active Well Path
The well path you were viewing or working with on the Directional section is now remembered so that if you navigate away from the Directional section and then come back; the previous well path is now automatically selected and displayed.
Improvement

When setting up an anti-collision well path, the latitude and longitude can be tracked.
Improvement
Anti-Collision Well Path North and East Adjustments
The North Adjustment and East Adjustment values for anti-collision well paths have been moved from the Upload Surveys modal to the Edit form so that when uploading a new set of offset well data, the previous values are remembered and do not have to be re-entered.
Improvement
Asset Serial Number Validation
To prevent accidentally creating assets that appear to have the same serial number, serial numbers can no longer begin with a blank space, end with a blank space or have multiple blank spaces in succession.
Improvement
Job Magnetic Qualifier Tracking Information
Two new fields, Gravity and Convergence Angle, have been added to the Magnetic Qualifier Tracking section when editing a job. Based off customer feedback, Intensity has also been renamed to Total Intensity to better clarify what this value represents.
Improvement

02/26/2019

Feature
Asset History
The history that is displayed for assets has been updated to be more informative and assist in tracking down issues with asset statuses and current location. These updates include color coding BHAs, shipments and work orders based on their status and showing canceled work orders as part of the asset's history so that it is easy to see if something was removed from history. Other improvements include showing a 'paper-clip' icon next to a BHA, shipment or work order in an asset's history if there are attachments associated with it.
Feature
Polylines Support
The ability to track hard lines, lease lines or drilling windows for a job is now supported. For more information on this new functionality please see our New Polyline Feature blog post.
Improvement
Auto-Spawned Work Orders
More visibility and control over when specific actions in the system auto-spawn work orders as been added. Now when completing a work order or shipment that spawns a new work order, the system will display a confirmation modal indicating what work orders will be created and if you want them auto-spawned.
Improvement
BHA Run Summary Information
The BHA details page now displays the Run Summary section(s) regardless of the BHA's status (i.e. 'Open' or 'Completed'); allowing field hands to record and save information as it is received without having to mark the BHA as 'Completed' and fill out every field.

Feature
Work Order Role Configuration and Customizations
The permissions/roles surrounding work orders have been completely updated so that individual roles can be configured and setup on a per-work order basis for each possible action (i.e. create, save, un-complete, cancel). In addition to customizing the base service roles functionality for work orders, new custom work order roles can also be created and configured. Together these improvements provide the ability to fully customize and fine tune the permissions around asset work flows, ensuring accuracy and helping to prevent mistakes. For more information or to set this up for your asset workflow, please contact support@drakewell.us.
Improvement
Work Order and Shipment Cancel/Un-Complete Warnings
Canceling or Un-Completing shipments and work orders has the potential to drastically effect an asset's history so warnings have been added when attempting to perform these actions to confirm you want to proceed and prevent accidentally making unintended changes.
Improvement
Work Order Subcomponents
On work orders that show the component assets of a parent, if one of these components is made up of its own subcomponents (i.e. a sub-assembly), these subcomponent assets are now displayed. This will make it easier to identify and correct when an asset contains the wrong subcomponents before it is too late.

The fixed column headers on the directional section's surveys/slides/rotates and target projections tables handle the data within the column better and prevent overlapping of information that would sometimes happen depending on the screen size of the device.
Improvement
Uploading Well Paths
The UI/UX around uploading surveys to a well path has been updated so that it is more clear on what each of the options do and when they should be used. The 'Activity Category' option has been removed when uploading surveys because based on customer feedback, there isn't a need to bulk upload survey information and have it be part of the daily activities.
Item Fix
Assembly Work Order Components
Work order components that are removed because of a modification to how the overall assembly is setup/configured are now set with the correct status and put back into inventory.
Item Fix
Work Order Number Duplicates

When this new well path is created, its Tie in Point is set to the survey information used to initiate this new well path.
Feature
Tagging Assets and Personnel on Job Field Tickets
Modifications have been made to the daily field tickets for a job so that assets and/or personnel can be tagged on individual field ticket line items or for the entire invoice, letting field personnel indicate if particular charges are for specific assets or personnel.
Improvement
Asset Work-flow Improvements
An overhaul of how our asset tracking engine operates has been completed to better handle the ever increasing complexities of asset work-flows. These updates will more accurately handle the different processes an asset can go through (especially around asset re-assemblies), ensuring an asset's status is correctly set and helping to prevent mistakes.
Improvement
BHA Drilling Distances
A new drilling distances graphic has been added to the Run Report section on a BHA that displays distance slid, distance rotated and total distance drilled. This graphic makes it easy to quickly identify data mistakes when completing a BHA by visually showing when the sum of the distance rotated and slid do not equal total distance drilled.
Improvement

09/26/2018

Improvement
BHA Directional and MWD Depths/Times
The BHA Directional and MWD sections have been updated so that the BHA's Date Time In/Out and Depth In/Out can be manually entered or adjusted in either side now. This improvement allows field hands on MWD only jobs to fill out everything needed within the MWD section of their BHA and not have to go to the Directional side to enter in times and depths. An important thing to remember is that there is still only a single BHA Date Time In/Out and Depth In/Out and any updates made to these fields are reflected on both sides.
Improvement
Daily Activities and Directional Surveys - 3D Plot Links
When viewing surveys on the Directional or Daily Activities sections, there is now a 'View on 3D Plot' link for each survey listed that takes you to the 3D Plot view and navigates to the selected survey on the well path. This link is visible by either hovering over the 'Survey' link or in the 'Edit Survey' window.
Improvement

When working with job details, the County field has been converted from a text field to a drop-down list that is automatically updated based on the selected Country and State/Province options.
Feature
Quick Access to Shipments and Work Orders on Job
The 'Assets' tab within a job now gives quick access to the inbound shipments and active/completed work orders for the any assets that are on location. This enables field personnel to easily find inbound shipments or active work orders they need to complete (i.e. strapping work orders) without having to navigate elsewhere in the system to find them.
Improvement
Component Asset Statuses
Any assets that are components and part of an assembly will now show a status of 'Assembled' when they are put on a parent asset; regardless of what status the parent asset is in. This will help prevent confusion in certain scenarios such as when an asset's status is set to 'Dirty in Shop' even though it was still assembled on a parent asset and therefore couldn't be inspected or serviced until the parent was disassembled.
Improvement
Billing Item Type Accounting Code
Billing Item Types now have a new 'Accounting Code' field that can be used to enter a reference number/code for the billing item that can be used when cross referencing other accounting systems. This new field is also part of the Bid and Job Invoice exports.

Improvement
File Upload Type Additions
CSV (.csv) files can now be uploaded as attachments in the system.
Improvement
MD Check When Importing Surveys
When importing surveys on an existing well path, if the 'Append to Existing Surveys' option selected, the system will check and validate if the survey file contains a survey with the same MD as an existing survey already on the well path. The validation is also applied when importing surveys on a new well path and will check if the survey file contains multiple surveys with the same MD.
Improvement
Rig Item Serial Numbers on BHAs
Rig items that have been added to a BHA now show their Serial Number and Type just like assets. This helps quickly identify rig items that need to be switched with an asset.
Improvement

Updated all of the search filter sections so they no longer randomly collapse; except for when clicking on the specific filter's header.
Item Fix
Work Order Drop-Down Fields
Drop-down fields on work orders that do not require a selection can now have their value be un-selected once an initial value has been set without causing a 'required' validation error.

Improvement
Shipments Preparing and Shipped UI Improvements
The inbound and outbound shipments for a specific location have been improved so that the 'From' and 'To' locations are more easily visible. Badges have also been added so that you can quickly identify which shipments have all of their assets ready and which shipments are tool orders and how many items still need to be fulfilled.
Item Fix
Asset Export
Updated the Asset Export so that columns which don't have unit specific information will display the values correctly.
Item Fix
Asset Viewing Full Parent History
Corrected the 'See Full Parent History' link on an asset's summary to take you to the asset's parent history instead of the component history.

04/02/2018

Feature
BHA POOH Reason
Based on customer feedback, the 'POOH Reason' on the BHA Run Summary has been converted from a single text field to a preset list of options that a user can select from. This keeps POOH reasons consistent across jobs and BHAs, which is useful when analyzing and comparing data.
Feature
Bid View Role
A new Bid View role has been added to provide more control over who can view bids within the system. This new role is required to view any bid information or select/modify bid information when creating a job.
Improvement
Browser History and Tab Info
Page title's have been added to the system so that when looking at the browser's page history, you can now easily identify the different pages within Drakewell that were last visited. If your browser supports tabs, then this information is also displayed in the tab header - helping to identify Drakewell tabs if multiple are open.
Improvement
Job Attachments Role
A new Job Attachments role has been added that gives field users the ability to add attachments at the job level without needing the 'Job Modify' role (which allows access to the 'Job Edit' section).
Item Fix

Feature
System Deployment Improvements and Notifications
The Drakewell deployment process has been underwent drastic changes to reduce the amount of scheduled downtime when new features and updates are pushed out to Drakewell instances. During a deployment, you will notice more informative pages explaining that a deployment is current in progress and once the deployment is finished, the system will provide alerts if there are new features and you need to refresh your browser.
Improvement
BHA Exports
The BHA exports now include any MWD assets and rig items that were added to the BHA's.
Improvement

All BHA reports have been updated to now have a column to show the Fish-neck Length for all BHA items that have been added.
Improvement
Field Ticket Quantity Decimal Values
The QTY field for Billing Type items on the daily Field Tickets now supports decimal values such as 1.5 or 2.25.
Improvement

Removed the 'Motor Failure' display from the Mud Motor report as this information isn't known until the motor has been disassembled and inspected.
Improvement
Plot 'More Information' Pop Up Display
When clicking on point on a job's plot, the 'More Information' display correctly aligns all information so that nothing overlaps if there isn't any anti-collision details. The 'close' button on the More Information display has also been updated to be more visible.
Improvement
Projection to Target Bounds
When adding target projections to a well path, checks have been put in place to prevent accidentally creating targets that project out to extremely large distances (TVD greater than 50,000 feet) and can cause the Directional page to become unresponsive as the system calculates a very large interpolated path.
Improvement
Work Order Information
Work orders now have the ability to show circulating hours, rotating hours, sliding hours, distance drilled, distance rotated, distance slid, BHA count, rate of penetration, rotating rate of penetration and sliding rate of penetration from the last BHA the asset was on. For more information or to set this up for a work order, please contact support@drakewell.us.

Resolved an issue where component assets would sometimes still behave as if they were assembled on their parent asset after a disassembly work order was completed.
Item Fix
Empty Field Tickets
If a field ticket containing billing items is created for a day and then those billing items are all removed, the day will no longer appear as having billing items in the day picker and the green triangle indicator will be removed. The Field Ticket report has also been updated to reflect these same changes.
Item Fix
Exports and Currently Viewed Page
Corrected an issue where the system exports would only include data from the currently viewed page number to the last page. Now regardless of the page you are viewing, the exports will include all results from the first to last page.

Fix and issue that was causing the Work Order's main Audit History from displaying.

12/11/2017

Feature
Survey Export Across Jobs
A new survey export has been added to the Job Search page and functions similar to the other exports in Drakewell. This export contains all surveys for any well paths that are of type 'Directional', basic job information and the corresponding BHA information that was down hole when the survey was taken (matched off the date/time for the BHA and survey).
Feature
Slide/Rotate Export Across Jobs
A new slide/rotate export has been added to the Job Search page and functions similar to the other exports in Drakewell. This export contains all slide/rotates for any well paths that are of type 'Directional', basic job information and the corresponding BHA information that was down hole when the survey was taken (matched off the date/time for the BHA and survey).
Feature
Well Path Survey Export
The surveys on a well path are now exportable into a CSV file so that they can be more easily re-imported into Drakewell or other software programs.
Feature
Well Plan and Path Survey Import
When creating a new well plan or well path, you can now import survey data that was exported from the Well Path Survey Export functionality. This can be useful during pad drilling and you want to use the surveys from an existing job in Drakewell as an offset well for a new job. This feature also gives you the ability to import well plan points or surveys from other software programs or manually create them yourself as long as they are in the same format as Drakewell's Well Path Survey Export CSV file.
Feature
Work Order Notes & Instructions
Asset work orders can now be setup and configured to include helpful notes, instructions, images and links which can be used to explain procedures and processes to follow when completing a work order.
Improvement
BHA and Daily Report Additions
Added the name of the BHA to the BHA header on these reports.
Improvement
BHA Export Additions
The BHA export has been expanded to include more information. On the BHAs sheet we have added 'BHA Name', Distance Rotated', 'Distance Slid', '% Distance Rotating', '% Distance Slid', '% Hours Sliding', '% Hours Rotating' and 'Billing Estimate'. The 'Billing Estimate column is calculated by taking the daily field ticket amounts that were completing while the BHA was down hole and proportionally (based on how many hours of the day they were down hole) applying them to BHAs. On the BHA Items sheet, a 'Manufacturer' and 'Vendor' have been added for all items.
Improvement
Billing Item Type Rates
When adding billing item types to a bid or job, we now show its 'Rate' in parenthesis so that they can be more easily identified if multiple billing item types have the same name.
Improvement
Customer Type
The 'Customer' filter for Bids, Jobs, Job Timeline and Job Map now also shows the customer type in parenthesis so that they can be more easily identified if multiple customers have the same name.

The cover sheet of the printed bid has been modified so that the 'District Manager' contact information is formatted the same as the 'Sales Representative' contact information.
Improvement
Survey Sensor Depth Validations
Validation and warning messages have been added to prevent multiple surveys from being created with the same 'Sensor Depth' and to prevent a survey from being created with a 'Sensor Depth' that is less than the tie in point's 'Survey Depth'.
Improvement
Well Path Labels
Updated the 'Default Directional Category' label on the Well Paths page for an existing well path to 'Default Activity Category' so that it matches the label for the same field on the new well path form.
Item Fix
Archive Adjustments
Updated the archiving functionality for Billing Item Types, Companies, Districts, Parts, Plays, Rigs and Shipping Templates so that if they are archived, they will no longer show up as options in the system. We have also updated the management screens for each so that an 'archived' item could be 'un-archived' if needed.
Item Fix
Average Tool ROP on the Daily, BHA and Mud Motor Reports
The 'Average (AVG) Total ROP' value on the Daily and BHA reports are now all labeled and calculated the same way. We have also removed the field from the 'Bit Details' section on the Mud Motor report as it is already shown in the 'Motor Results' section.
Item Fix
Editing Well Paths With Uploaded Surveys
Resolved an issue where surveys would be duplicated when editing and saving an existing well path that contained uploaded survey information.
Item Fix
Field Ticket Report
To prevent discrepancies between a daily field ticket report and what is shown in the UI, the daily field ticket report can no longer be generated if changes have been made but not saved.
Item Fix
Incorrect Survey Calculations
We have updated the logic around when surveys get re-calculated as there existed scenarios where an existing survey could be modified but not all affected surveys would be adjusted and therefore could result in some of the fields (N, E, TVD, etc) being incorrect.
Item Fix
MWD BHA Depth Out
Corrected the 'Depth Out' on the MWD BHA so that it displays the value in the correct Imperial units or Metric units.
Item Fix
Survey Validation Messages
Corrected the warning/validation messages when working with surveys so that they show a more detailed explanation of why they were not be saved.

10/27/2017

Feature
Field Ticket Export
A new field ticket export has been added to the Job Search page and functions similar to the other exports in Drakewell. The Excel version breaks apart the Field Ticket data into three sheets: the first containing every job and corresponding basic information, the second contains the items that were billed for on each field ticket for the jobs and the third contains all of the available billing items that could have been billed for on the jobs. These three sheets can be pivoted off each other by leveraging the Job Number available on all sheets. The CSV version contains the same data but combines the Jobs, Job Field Tickets and Available Field Ticket items into one giant table.
Feature
Quick Key Support and Better Keyboard Navigation
The Directional and Daily Activity screens have been updated so that you can more easily and quickly navigate around with various keyboard shortcuts.
Feature
Scheduled Personnel Notification
A new notification option has been added that sends an email to a field hand when they have been scheduled to a job.
Improvement
Daily Summary Report Billing Totals
The Daily Summary report will now show the total billed for the day the report is ran for and the cumulative total billed for the job up to the current date and time.
Improvement
Field Ticket Report Updates
Long Billing Item Type names now automatically wrap instead of being cut off on the report.
Improvement
Job Export Scheduled Personnel
The job export now includes the contact information for fields hands that are scheduled to a job.
Improvement
Open BHA Report (BHA Proposal)
If using the Open BHA report as a BHA proposal, the BHA Start Date/Time are no longer needed for the Serial Number and Vendor columns to populate for items on the BHA.
Item Fix
All Shipments Sort Order
Updated how the shipments are sorted on the All Shipments section so that once shipment numbers surpass 9999, they are still sorted correctly.
Item Fix
Daily Activity Day Picker/Times
Corrected an issue that where the date range display on the Daily Summary report would show the wrong time range if the job and user where in different timezones.
Item Fix
Survey, Slide, Rotate and Daily Activity Start/End Times
Corrected an issue where the Start/End Time for a survey, slide, rotate or daily activity would not update to the selected date after being cleared.
Item Fix
Target Projection Recalculation
Fixed an issue where a projection to target would not automatically recalculate the interpolated points from the latest survey if a there wasn't a well plan tied to the well path the target projection was for.

08/29/2017

Feature
Adding Surveys/Slides/Rotates
When adding a new survey/slide/rotate, the defaulted start time will now be able to take into account any daily activities that were added since the last survey/slide/rotate and set the start time accordingly.
Feature
Projection to Bit via Motor Yield
The projection to bit based off the motor yield on the Directional page has been updated to now use only the last Motor Yield rather than looking at the last 3 Motor Yields for the projection calculation.
Feature
Traveling Cylinder Enhancements
Based on great user feedback, we have added a lot of new functionality to our Traveling Cylinder. When looking at the traveling cylinder for a specific well path, we now show the tool-face for a survey and the calculated straight line distance between that survey and the well path's linked plan. If a target projection(s) have been added to the well path, the traveling cylinder now has the ability to 'travel' along these projections as well to see how they relate to the original plan. For projected points (displayed in gray instead of red), you can see name of the projected target and the same information as an actual drilled survey.
Feature
Working with Surveys/Slides/Rotates on the Daily Activities Page(s)
The daily activities page(s) have been updated so that any surveys, slides or rotates that were automatically added from the corresponding directional page can now be edited or deleted on that daily activity page. The ability to add new surveys, slides and rotates is still restricted to the directional page because of the additional tools/information (projections, traveling cylinder, etc.) that are only available on this page.
Feature
Working with Well Paths
Updates have been made to the Well Path page to make working with well paths easier and help to prevent accidental deletes and overwrites of survey data. When importing surveys on a new or existing well path, instead of defaulting the survey's date/time to when they were imported, you can now specify this date/time so that they show up in the correct order on the directional page and in reports. If you choose to import surveys to a well path with existing data, you now have the option to replace the current surveys only, replace the current surveys/slides/rotates or to just add the surveys to the well path and leave the existing information in place. To help prevent the accidental deletion of well paths, we have made the warning a little more obvious and descriptive. There is also an added layer of protection to confirm that you want to delete the selected well path.
Improvement
Daily Summary Report Adjustments
The Daily Summary report has been updated so that if a Daily Summary report contains BHAs, it will no longer split a single BHA between multiple pages. We have also removed the Level information for scheduled personnel.
Improvement
Plot/3D Plot Enhancements
The plot and 3D plots now show the current Deviation from Plan for the current selected survey or interpolated point on a projection to a target.
Improvement
Searching by Bid Tags
The Bid list can now be filtered by any bid tags that have been used to identify a bid. To filter the bids by a tag(s), simply click the bid tag in the upper right hand corner of a bid or find the bid tag in the new 'Tags' search filter option.
Improvement
Validating Scheduled Personnel Dates
Better validation messages have been added to scheduling personnel so that it is more obvious when their scheduled dates are invalid.
Item Fix
Attachments
Corrected an issue where file attachments that contained a pound symbol ('#') in the file name could not be deleted.
Item Fix
Bit Size on Reports
Fixed an issue where the Bit Size would potentially round to the nearest whole number depending on how it was setup in the configuration.
Item Fix
Day Picker Modifications
Made adjustments to the Day Picker to correct scenarios where the Day Picker would load without any days displayed in the scroll section or where the the first active day would not get counted as a Job Day if it was followed by a Standby Day.
Item Fix
Missing Work Orders in an Asset's History
Corrected an issue where certain work orders that made adjustments to assets with a dash ('-') in their serial number would not be listed in the asset's history.
Item Fix
Performance Chart Headings and Labels
The last Drakewell update accidentally removed the performance chart headings and labels on the printed reports. They should be back now.

07/27/2017

Feature
Bid Export
A new bid export has been added to the Bid Search page and functions similar to the other exports in Drakewell. The Excel version breaks apart the Bid data into two sheets: the first containing every bid and corresponding basic information, the second contains the billing item types for each of the bids. These two sheets can be pivoted off each other by leveraging the Bid Number available on all sheets. The CSV version contains the same data but combines the Bids and Billing Item Types parts into one giant table.
Improvement
BHA Item Top and Bottom Connections
The BHA Items list on the BHA page and BHA reports now have specific columns to show the Top and Bottom Connection for each item added so that connections that don't line up can be easily identified.
Improvement
BHA UI Update
We have completely updated the BHA page so that it is easier to use and groups the related information together better. With this new layout we can accommodate the additional information that is now being displayed for each item on the BHA and show the entire BHA string without the need to horizontally scroll the image.
Improvement
Connection Type Additions
Added new connection types 'HT 46' and 'GPDS42'.
Improvement
Font Update
If you haven't already noticed, we have made a slight change to the font Drakewell uses! The primary reason for this change is to get back some breathing room and prevent different pages from looking so cramped. This new font is also better supported on a wider range of devices so Drakewell will have a consistent look and feel on phones, tablets, etc.
Improvement
Job Links
To make navigating in Drakewell easier, we have went through and made the places that we display job identification information click-able links so you can quickly jump to view information about the job.
Improvement
Rig Motor Outer Diameter
Added an 'Outer Diameter' field to the BHA Item Rig Motor.
Improvement
Wear Pad OD on Reports
All reports that show 'Wear Pad OD' have been updated to show a consistent label and value precision.

The BHA's In and Out date/times now take into account the job's specified time zone.
Item Fix
MWD BHA Report
The MWD BHA report now shows the MWD Comments instead of the Directional Comments.
Item Fix
Scheduled Personnel on Daily Report
Resolved an issue where the Personnel section on the Daily report would only show people that had been added to the Job Contact section (under editing a job). It now correctly list both scheduled personnel and job contacts.
Item Fix
Survey Report Comments
Corrected an issue where the Survey report would show an empty 'Comments' line for surveys that had a comment but the comment was then later removed.
Item Fix
Performance Chart Headings and Labels
The last Drakewell update accidentally removed the performance chart headings and labels on the printed reports. They should be back now.

07/05/2017

Feature

The survey, slide and rotate activities have been updated so that the optional information that is entered for each is automatically added to the comments of the corresponding auto-created daily activity and will now show up on the daily activity reports.
Improvement
Asset Search by Serial Number
A new 'Serial Number' field has been added to the current list of search filters on the Inventory list page. This new filter will only return the assets that have a serial number matching the entered value and will not query other fields on an asset like the general 'Search' filter does.
Improvement
Bit Total Flow Area
The total flow area for a bit can now be manually entered when it is added to a BHA and will display in the 'Bit Details' section on all reports.
Improvement
Connection Types
The list of available connection types for inventory has been expanded to include more options.
Improvement
Directional Survey/Slide/Rotate Copy Optional Fields
When adding a new survey, slide or rotate on the directional page, the option fields can now be pulled from the last corresponding entry by clicking on the 'Copy Last Entry' button and then adjusted as needed.

General Inspection Work Order
A new general 'Inspection' work order has been added so that any asset type that doesn't have a specific inspection work order can be checked over to make sure it is still performing as intended and placed back in inventory.
Improvement
Job Search by Job Number
A new 'Job Number' field has been added to the current list of search filters on the Job list page. This new filter will only return the jobs that have a job number matching the entered value and will not query other fields on a job like the general 'Search' filter does.
Improvement
Open Job Location in Google Maps
Jobs that have a lat/long set can now be opened and viewed in Google Maps.
Improvement
Remembering Job's Last Selected Day
When working within the different sections a job, the currently selected day you are viewing will now be remembered and automatically selected when switching between the tabs. This currently selected day will also be defaulted when switching between multiple jobs.

Turn Rate Calculation
Updated the turn rate calculations to correctly handle when the azimuth for a survey rolls over from 359 degrees to 0 degrees or greater.
Item Fix
Work Order Completed At Date
Corrected an issue where it was possible to complete a work order and the 'Completed At' date would not be set.

05/23/2017

Feature
Personnel Export
A new personnel export has been added to the Personnel Search page and functions similar to the other exports in Drakewell. The Excel version breaks apart the Personnel data into two sheets: the first containing every user and corresponding basic information, the second contains the employment history for each of the users. These two sheets can be pivoted off each other by leveraging the Username available on all sheets. The CSV version contains the same data but combines the Personnel and Employment History parts into one giant table.
Improvement
Bid Workflow
The bid workflow has been adjusted so that now only bids with an 'Approved' status can generate a new job or be tied to an existing job. Previously this could be done with bids that had a status of either 'Approved' or 'Archived'.
Improvement
Bid & Job Status Addition
A new 'Void' status has been added for bids and jobs to categorize ones that were done for testing or setup as a template for new bids and/or jobs.
Improvement
Mobile Reports Usability
We have improved the UI/UX when generating the various Drakewell reports on mobile devices so that they are all consistent in look and feel.
Improvement
Billing Item Type Rate Overrides
The Billing Item Type Rate Overrides section has been updated to add new functionality and refinements. These include showing the customer type in addition to the name, allowing a rate override for a customer and/or play to be deleted and updating an existing rate override when a new one is adding for the same customer and/or play.
Improvement
Scheduling Personnel
When scheduling personnel to a job, you are required to enter a start and end date. Not entering one of these and attempting to schedule a user results in an error message being displayed, but we have made this more obvious by not displaying any users if one of the dates is missing.
Item Fix
Job Notes
Corrected an issue where the job notes would only show on the Job Summary page if there was a well path created for that job.
Item Fix
Mud Motor Report
The Mud Motor report can now be generated when a BHA doesn't have a Bit added to it.

05/09/2017

Feature
Shipping Export
A new shipping export has been added to the 'All Shipments' page and functions similar to the other exports in Drakewell. The Excel version breaks apart the Shipping data into three sheets: the first containing every shipment and corresponding basic information, the second contains all of the serialized assets on a shipment and the third contains all parts (non-serialized assets) on a shipment. These three sheets can be pivoted off each other by leveraging the Shipment Number available on all sheets. The CSV version contains the same data but combines the Shipments, Shipment Assets, and Shipment parts into one giant table.
Improvement
Field Ticket Permissions
The field ticket page within a job no longer requires users to have the 'Job Modify' role to be able to change billing item quantities, copy the previous day's billing items, pick a billing item from the drop down list or save the daily field ticket after modifications were made.
Improvement
Field Ticket and BHA Attachment Permissions
Users can now add attachments to Field Tickets and BHAs without needing the 'Job Modify' role.
Item Fix
Asset Details When Copying BHAs
If a BHA is copied, it will correctly show the same BHA item details as the original BHA.
Item Fix
Job Performance Charts
The BHA Performance charts have been updated to now correctly display BHAs that have slide or rotate distance entered but no slide or rotate time entered.
Item Fix
Location Picker Placement
The location picker that is used in different places to a pick a location has been modified so that it will no longer appear off screen when using certain devices and browsers.
Item Fix
Location Picker Jobs
Corrected an issue where the location picker would not show a particular job because it was returning an older, cached list.
Item Fix

A recent update caused preventing searching and tagging of assets/people on an activity.

04/19/2017

Feature
Daily Activity UI Refresh
The daily activity page(s) UI has been completely updated based off customer feedback to be more consistent with other pages in Drakewell and to provide a more useful and informative display.
Improvement
Mobile Asset Pickers
When working with a page that requires you to pick an asset on a mobile device, the asset picker now shows the asset type for each item listed and you can horizontally scroll the items in the picker to select the one you want.
Improvement
Performance Charts
After the introduction of the new Performance Charts in the last update, we received some great feedback on minor modifications to make them even better. These improvements include grouping the daily activities by type (i.e. Directional Activities, MWD Activities), adding print fuctionality to the charts and automatically adding the charts to the End of Well report.
