Working with folders and BIM 360 Docs
Use the Desktop Connector to upload folders and their contents to the BIM 360 Docs projects that you have permissions for (we respect the Docs permission model). Watch this video to see how simple it is to drag and drop content into BIM 360 using this workflow.
Connect your local workflows to BIM 360 Docs
It’s now simple to collaborate on your design and construction files using Connected Desktop. Simply open your file from BIM 360, edit it locally, then save and your changes will be published back to the project.
You can also use the Desktop Connector in your authoring tools as a drive location for linked files. Simply direct the application to the location in BIM 360 Docs, and let it take care of the rest.
