Global Login goes large(r)
Global Login is a new way of logging into Aconex, particularly useful for people who have multiple accounts and projects on the go. From 17.8 you’ll see a link on the instance log-in page inviting you to log in via the Global Login page. If you don’t have a Global Login account, you can create one from that page. Once you enter Global Login, you can add all your Aconex accounts and you’ll have a list of all available projects – regardless of what instance they're on. Just click through to the one you want to access and you’ll be straight to work.
Parallel markups import – September 10
You can now import markups submitted by other people reviewing the same document as you. This means you can do your review with context from another reviewer, and avoid double-ups during the review.
What exactly does that mean? In a parallel review where there are three reviewers, let's say one reviewer submits their review. The other two reviewers will be alerted that markups are are available from another review. They can click a link to import those markups to their file, and continue with their review. The two reviewers who import the other reviewer's mark-ups can’t delete or edit them, but they can add comments to them. When they submit their mark-ups, their submission will contain the imported markups as well as theirs.
