This article will cover each step of filling out a form from your web browser.

Note: To follow along, a Form must be set up in a project that you're a team member on. If your project doesn't have a Form in it yet, request one from the project's DADO administrator.

How to Fill Out a Form in a Web Browser

Step 1: Open the App

If you haven't already, open DADO for Construction in your web browser by going to If this is the first time you're opening the app in this browser, you may need to log in. Then, select the company and project that has the form you need to fill out.

Step 2: Open the Forms Page

Once in the project, click "Forms" in the Project area of the left navigation menu.

Step 3: Choose a Form

Select the form you'd like to fill out by tapping its name in the forms list. If the forms list only says "No forms exist in your project...", ask your administrator to add a form to the project in order to continue.

Step 4: Fill Out Fields

Fill out fields on the form by tapping the blue rectangles in areas you'd like to complete. Fields may have different entry methods depending on how the project admin sets the form up.

Note: Some fields may be filled out automatically with information such as today's date, your name, or the project's name. You can overwrite some of them if you need to.

Step 5: Attach Documents and Photos

There are multiple options and settings for including additional information in a submitted form.

Attach a Binder or Document - go to the bottom menu, select the "Attach Documents" button and you will see options to attach recently viewed documents or to attach a Binder.

  • For Attaching Documents and Drawings - hover over the document and select "Attach Document"

  • Select attachment options - select which markups to include and which pages

  • For attaching just a portion of a drawing create a snippet - select the snippet radio button and then "create snippet". Here you will select the specific area of the document or plan to attach to the form.

Attach an Image - to add images, or any documents not in DADO, go to the "Insert" menu item in the markups toolbar. Select the image icon then highlight the area you want to add your image to. Once your area is selected your documents menu will appear - you can select the document(s) you wish to add following the usual steps on your operating system. You can position your image in the form once it has been added.

Note: to add a new page to add an image to, select "Add Page" in the menu on the bottom then insert the image there.

Step 6: Submit the Form

If you're finished filling the form in, tap "Submit" to save your answers to DADO. Your submission may become visible on the Documents page if the administrator allows it.
