Take a look at how it works:
When users need to collaborate on the cost worksheet with another organization or give contractors access to forms to complete their assigned tasks, they can do so using the Shared Cost Workspace feature. With Shared Cost Workspace you can give users access to a subset of the existing forms and functions in Cost.
The Cost Workspace Collaborator License type is for organizations that are working on behalf of other organizations, and is assigned by the Aconex Administrator as required. When the License type is assigned to an organization, the following security profiles are automatically created:
The Cost Workspace Collaborator security profile gives the user permission to enter other org’s workspaces and adds the Cost tab for the user to navigate to those other Cost Workspaces.
We’ve also improved Cost’s general layout and styling and updated the translations.
When you’re checking a range of packages, you’ll typically use filters to narrow down your search. Now you can save search criteria and easily find packages again, without having to re-set the filters every time. You can also share the saved searches with your organization or across the whole project.
Package Transmittal History shows if the most recent package version has already been sent. To do this in the past you’d have to go into the Mail Module, filter by Package Transmittal and then try to find the right one – so this makes life much easier.
Ok, now you’re up to date with the biggest releases since November 2017! We hope you find the new functionality makes your workday easier, and have discovered some new time-saving tips and ways to help you work more effectively in Aconex.
