BIM 360 now provides a more unified approach to project administration and member management, which is easily accessible to both Account Admins and Project Admins. This unified experience includes the following improvements and capabilities:
- New, more powerful Project Members page
- Auto-activation of project membership for existing Account members
- Role-based default access
- Simplified project management for Account Admins
- Unified Administration Activity Log
New, more powerful Project Members Page
The redesigned Project Members page displays which next generation modules (Document Management, Field Management [beta], and Model Coordination [beta]) each project member can access. Account and Project Admins can now add and manage next gen module members and project admins directly from this page.
Access and navigation to Project Admin has not changed – but the experience for managing members is greatly improved.
- In Docs, click the Module Selector > Project Admin.
- Click Members
Here is what Project Admin looks like if you have only Document Management activated for your project:
And here is what it looks like if you have other modules activated for your project:
Auto-activation of project membership for existing Account members
When adding a project member from the Add Members page in Project Admin, if that person is already a member of the account, they will now be auto-activated. These users can immediately access their projects without having to find the invitation email or click a link to activate.
Role-based default access
When adding or editing project members, admins can assign a project role, such as Architect or Superintendent. This role will set the members default access level for each next generation service module (Document Management, Field Management, and Model Coordination)
NOTE: Roles do not automatically determine a user’s access level to folders and documents. The folder permission model for Document Management remains unchanged.
Simplified project management for Account Admins
Account Admins can manage project member access to next generation modules without having to first add themselves to the project as a Project Admin.
Unified Administration Activity Log
Account Admins can now see account and project level administration management activities in one consolidated admin activity log. For example, when an Account or Project Admin adds, edits, or removes a project member, that activity is logged. All other project activities (uploads, markups, etc.) in BIM 360 Document Management continue to be tracked in the project-level Activity Log available to Project Admins.
A note about unified Project Admin access: Now next generation Project Admins can view and edit access to all next gen service modules. They can also access the project services page, where they can activate services which are enabled for your account. Please note that this is a more open and unified approach to Project Administration. We recommend that you discuss this with your account administrator to ensure you’re aligned on this new approach going forward.
