The BIM 360 Docs August 30, 2017 update extends issue management capabilities with support for creation and management of issues on 3D models (in any folder), enhances collaboration with intuitive, secure, document and folder sharing, and delivers usability and quality improvements.
Issues on 3D Models
Now you can create and manage issues on your 3D models managed in either the “Plans” or “Project Files” folders. To create an issue, drop a pin on the area of the model and enter the fields in the issue form. A notification will go to the assigned user, role, or company with a direct link to the model and the issue details. From there, the assigned user can respond or reassign, following the same “ball-in-court” workflow available for issues on 2D drawings.
Securely Share Documents or Folders
You can select a document or folder and easily share it with other project members. Enter the username or email of each project member, and click “send.” Those users will receive an email with the link to the document or folder. This process adheres to the security settings for your project, and only users with permission to view the document or folder will be allowed to access to your project data.
All sharing activities are tracked in the Activity Log, ensuring that you have a complete audit trail.
We have updated the context menus for improved usability.
We have also added a “locked” indicator and share / download menu in the viewer.
This update also includes changes to the default column widths for the list view in “Project Files” folders. These changes are in response to customer feedback for better support of the longer file names required by standards such as PAS 1192-2 in the United Kingdom.
