The March BIM 360 release contains improvements to search and filtering and improvements to custom attributes administration.
BIM 360 users can find what they need faster with the following search and filter improvements:
Custom Attributes Filtering – Projects created September 2020 onward only
BIM 360 Docs users can now filter search results and filter folders by a custom attribute and its value, increasing their search’s relevancy. Click the filter icon next to the search bar to view custom attributes available for filtering.
Relevance Highlights – Projects created after September 2020 onward only
BIM 360 Docs users will see their search query highlighted in their search results, helping them understand why a file matched their search.
Option to Include/Exclude Subfolders From Search – Projects created September 2020 onward only
BIM 360 Docs users can further narrow down their search results by choosing to include or exclude subfolders from their search, helping them find what they need quickly.
View and Rerun Recent Searches – All projects
BIM 360 Docs users will now see their five most recent searches when clicking into the search bar, saving users time and increasing efficiency.
Content results indicator for Vector PDFs – Projects created September 2020 onward only
BIM 360 Docs users will be informed if their search results have content matches inside vector PDF files. When the search results return a vector PDF file with content matches, an icon will display on the grid. The icon has a tooltip that reads “has content match.”
