What are construction daily reports? 

Construction daily reports are generally detailed daily logs and recaps of the day. These daily reports included reports surrounding the workforce, contractors, or assets on a project.

Traditionally, daily reports were manually filled out with pen and paper throughout or at the end of the day. This method takes up a lot of time, and energy and is prone to mistakes after a long day of work.
