BIM 360 Release Notes

BIM 360 Docs Search and Filter Enhancements for New Projects – September 23, 2020

Audrey Boguchwal
September 23, 2020

With the latest BIM 360 Docs release, new BIM 360 projects have enhanced search and filter features in document management.

In Plans, Projects Files and any sub folders, Docs users may now:

  • Filter to view folders only, documents only, or both
  • Filter by current file versions
  • Search and then filter search results by folders, documents and current versions

In Project Files and its subfolders, Docs users may additionally:

  • Filter folders by file type (e.g. .pdf, .xls, .dwf, etc.)
  • Filter search results by file type

On BIM 360 Documents Management, click the filter icon to the right of the search bar to reveal the filter options. Use the dropdown menus to filter folders without searching, or filter after a search to narrow the results.

BIM 360 Docs September Search Release

Please note: these features are not available on BIM 360 projects created before September 23, 2020.

    Nice update, but we also like to have these functionalities on current projects.

    Are you also busy with mandatory Field, otherwise you cannot filter 100% completely

    If projects created before September 23rd 2020 are migrated to a newer version of Revit (using Revit Cloud Model Upgrade), will this search function become available after the update?

      No, migration to a new version of Revit is unrelated to the search features as they are part of BIM 360 Docs.

    Too bad that this new option of filtering only applies to new projects created after September 23rd. We have long project turnaround times and therefore create relatively few new projects.

    We are so pleased by your positive feedback.

    We are actively working on bringing these new search features to BIM 360 projects created before September 23, 2020. The new features leverage new technology and we must migrate existing project data to use them, so we cannot currently comment on release timing.

      These new features are welcome, although it is unfortunate that they are not yet available to existing projects created prior to September 23. Can you advise how the migration of existing project data will work – will projects be updated in small batches over a specific time period? will there be notification to admins in advance of a project being updated?

      We are still working on the migration and communication plans and will share more when they are ready.

    This is a great feature. It would be good to also allow users to filter custom attributes as well! Is this on the roadmap? Thanks

      Yes, we are actively working on custom attribute filtering. We will share more when that functionality is released.

      Agree. Why not in previous projects available?
