Scanning Angle Warnings
We did a good study about the scanning angle. Our conclusion is that to get better results you should keep your device tilted a little less than 45 degrees pointing down.
Here are some warnings you may get and what you should do:
The ceiling warning is displayed when the angle of the device is too high (scanning ceiling) for over 5 seconds. Please, tilt your device down (a little less than 45 degrees should be fine).
Reminder: You should only scan ceilings that are less than 7 feet.
Scan the ceiling at a slight upwards angle, so that the ceiling and other context is visible in the frame.
Do not scan directly under the ceiling you are capturing.
Do not scan the ceilings for over 5 seconds.
Horizontal warning is displayed if you continue to scan in a too high scanning angle. For example, scanning kitchen fixed furniture would be okay for a brief moment of time with a higher scanning angle. If you get this warning, please tilt your device downwards a bit.
Excessive tilt warning
Floor warning is displayed when the angle of the device is too low (scanning floor). If you get this warning, please tilt your device upwards a bit.
Sideways warnings (left and right) are displayed when the user walks sideways / with device pointing to the wall. If you get this warning, please point the device to the walking direction (front).
Device Orientation Warnings
Portrait to landscape guidance
Portrait to landscape guidance is displayed when the scanning view is first launched and the device is in portrait orientation. This guidance can be dismissed by turning the device to landscape orientation (to the left), and this needs to be done in order to be able start recording.
Reverse-landscape warning is displayed when the device is in reverse-landscape orientation (to the right). To dismiss this warning, the user needs to turn their phone (180 degrees) to the opposite landscape orientation.

This warning is displayed when scanning a space which is too dark or if the device has trouble finding its positioning (e.g. empty rooms with evenly colored walls and carpet). This warning displays the warning text, the orange borders and plays an error sound.

Storage Space Warnings
Before starting a new scan from Pre Scan view or Draft Order Preview view we check how much available storage the device has. If the user’s storage space is almost full we display a warning in the basic error dialog. If the device doesn’t have enough storage space for a 5 minute scan we display a warning and scanning will be disabled. If the device has storage space for a 5-25 minute scan we display a warning but allow scanning.
|Your Storage space is almost full! Delete some files to make more space available.||Device doesn’t have enough storage space for a 5 minute scan. Please, clear some space on your device before trying again.|
|Your Storage space is almost full! You can scan for approximately ||Device doesn’t have enough storage space for a long scan. Please, clear some space on your device before trying again.|
Internet Connection Warnings
The app has multiple internet connection checks around the App. On Android they display the same “Connection Error! Please check your internet connection.” message if the device is not connected to the internet. If a user gets this warning they should check their internet connection. If something still is not working in the App, they should go back one page/view (using the back button/arrow) and then open the page/view they were before.
For example, currently on Android when the On Device scan’s Order Preview view is opened without an internet connection, this warning will be displayed and the Send button will be disabled. To try again, please exit the send order view, and try to send the order again when the internet is available.
The iOS gives this warning in the send order view.
