Cascading metadata now supports 14 fields
Earlier this year, we made ten new single-select list fields available for project document metadata, bringing the total to 14.
As of this release, these fields can be configured into a cascading schema, which gives Project Owners greater control over the capture of document metadata.
Project-wide saved searches now available
We’ve also added the ability for Project Owners to share Mail and Documents searches across the whole project. This lets Project Owners help all project participants by creating common, standard views into the Document and Mail registers.
Turning off basic document auto-numbering
We’ve built a new project preference that lets Project Owners decide whether or not they want basic document auto-numbering to be available for the project.
Disabling this preference removes the Auto-number checkbox which usually appears beside the Document Number field in the Document Upload screen. This way, users won’t be confused when document auto-numbering schemes are applied to a project on a per-document-type basis.
Introducing model sectioning
We’ve removed the vertical sectioning sliders from Connected BIM, replacing them with a new sectioning tool that lets you apply up to six planes to a model.
Now, you can easily isolate an area inside a model. And you can share these new sectioned areas with others on the project using mail or comments. You can also save them to your list of viewpoints.
