Overview of Project Sites Tab

The project sites tab contains information regarding all the sites that have been added to your project, either from the search results tab, by manually adding sites, or by uploading custom sites. The columns in the project sites tab can be categorized into two groups; columns related to site information, and columns related to usable area.

Project Site Information

The first several columns in the project sites tab provide general information about each site in the project. For each site record you can see information such as site name, the site size, site rank, status, and any comments associated with the site.

These columns include the following:

1. Parcels  By expanding the site, you can see all the individual tax map parcels that make up that particular site. For tax map parcels, this will only include one parcel, but for smart parcels or custom sites, it may include several tax map parcels. 
2. Name  This column lists the name of the site. For sites added either via the Search Results tab or the Add Sites tool, the default name of the site is the landowner’s name. By double-clicking within the cell, you can edit the site name. 
 3. Size (ac)  Total acreage of the site. 

4. Rank

You can assign a 1 to 5 rank to each site by double-clicking on the desired rank.  

5. Status

This is a drop-down field that can be selected to indicate the current status of the site. These options can be configured for each account.  


This field can be used to add any relevant comments about the site.

7. Powerline (mi) and Substation (mi)

These two columns list the distance to the nearest powerline and substation, respectively, to the site.

8. Site Location 

This column includes several tools to visualize and get information about a site. From left to right, the icons allow you to edit a site, flash the site location, zoom to the site, generate a Siting Constraint report or download a Permitting report of the site. For more information about editing sites, please see this Help Center article. For more information about the Siting Constraint and Permitting reports, please see this Help Center article.


Configure Site Location Symbology by Status or Rank

The status options can be configured and customized for each account. For more information and assistance with customizing these options, please contact support@pivvot.com.

Set and Color Code by Status

To set the status, double click on the status column and choose a status from the dropdown list.

The constraint columns show the percent of impact on the usable area calculation. These percent values represent the amount of impact the constraint has on the project site and are located to the right of the usable area column. Flash the represented area or zoom to it by hovering over the constraint record and selecting the desired tool.
