Do you view, review or mark up documents in Aconex?

Do you view, review, comment on or mark up documents? In the coming months you’ll notice some changes, mainly in Workflows and when viewing documents in the Document Register.

What’s changing?

In October 2016, we’ll be launching a new tool for viewing and working with documents. The current Autovue Viewer will be retired as a result. We wanted to get in touch well in advance of the retirement of Autovue so we can help you with the changeover process and keep you up-to-date with any news.

What does the new Viewer offer?

  • It’s faster and easier, with simpler markup tools.
  • Works on all current browsers, all the time.
  • Even more secure, no need for third-party plugins and add-ons.
  • It’s collaborative, allowing you to comment on other people’s markups on PDFs, and mark up or comment on DWG files.

What do you need to be aware of?

  • Reviewing a document in Workflows will be the most obvious change. The document will become the centre of your workspace, with your commenting and markup tools to the side of the screen.
  • The new Viewer will offer simple stamp creation tools, but if you currently use stamps, they’ll need to be migrated to a new format – and we’re here to help you do that. Get in touch with us now and we’ll guide you on how to prepare your stamps for use in the viewer. See also: Preparing your Autovue stamps for the new Document Viewer.
  • All existing documents that have Autovue markups will remain in your register and the markups will continue to be available and viewable as PDFs.

Your project may be eligible to participate in our beta program for the new Viewer. If you’re interested in learning more or participating in the beta, send an email to
