The Aconex 17.9 release (currently scheduled for mid September 2017) includes the removal of the “Multi File Download” feature. 

The “Multi File Download” is used to download more than one file at a time from the doc register to your local computer.

It uses very old Java Applet technology which is no longer supported by modern browsers. Some users may have experienced issues using this feature.

We recommend using the "Zip Download" or "Zip Download With Markups" feature, which provides similar functionality. Find out more about using the Zip Download feature in this Support Central article

Integrating with Aconex APIs

Additional functionality for downloading files is available via Aconex APIs.

These are useful if you’d like to:

  • Periodically update local copies of document files with new revisions.
  • Specify a different destination location for each document file.
  • Rename document files as you download each one.
Any feedback?
