In May, we focused on improving the usability of the file naming workflow in the Files tool. Learn more about this improvement below:
Files | Improved Editing of File Naming Standard
Now when editing the naming standard values of files, BIM 360 Docs members can incrementally batch edit their files with numerical attributes by selecting “Sequence number” in the dropdown menu. Please note that “Same number” is the the default option value .
Once you have selected “Sequence number” to enable incrementally batch editing, there are two text fields: “Start Number” and “Sequence Number”. Both of these fields are required, and support both decimal period (1.0) and decimal comma (1,0).
- Start Number is the starting number of the validator naming flow and applies to all documents. This number can only be a positive integer or decimal, such as 1 or 0.1.
- Sequence Number is the incremental value of the validator naming flow. This number can be a positive or negative integer or decimal, such as 1, 0.1, or -1.
For more information on this feature, check out the BIM 360 help article on renaming documents.
