    This is AWESOME! Autodesk, you are headed in the right direction and making my job much easier and more efficient. I am still looking forward to the day when I can review Microsoft word and excel documents within the review function. That functionality would constitute a day of celebration for all Operations Managers.

      Hi Jake:

      Thanks for your feedback. We are working on the ability to review Office files (Word, Excel, etc.). I hope you will be able to celebrate that soon.

      Best,
