More power for Field administrators. Add and remove key contacts without contacting Service Desk.

Attention Field administrators: you no longer have to call Service Desk to add and remove key contacts of participating organizations.

In the Field Directory, select Organizations you work with, and in the Add a contact field, begin typing a name and select one from the drop down list. Repeat the process to add more names, or to remove a contact, simply click on the next to the contact’s name.

Note: at any time during the project lifecycle, you’re able to add and remove key contacts, even after the organizations have been added.

  • When connecting to the Aconex environments using the Navisworks or Revit plugin, you’ll now see the instance following the Project Location e.g. Australia/NZ (AU1).

Cost

More flexibility in the information you can display and use in reports

We’re introducing configured manual fields, enabling you to enter related information in Cost that's not able to be stored in the built-in columns. Manual fields appear as new columns in the grids, and are available on the Cost reports. This can be useful as reference information, or used as categories or summary options on reports.

Change event items import

The change event items import has been updated to include the new budget change and cost change fields. To access this, download the new template available on the import screen.

User Management Groups

Fixes and enhancements

  • When adding users to a User Management Group, there was a bug which made it difficult to add someone if there were a large number of users with similar names on the project. This has now been resolved.

Global Login

Introducing The Lobby – your new Global Login

We’re excited to announce that a new and improved sign-in experience will arrive later this year. The Lobby is the new and improved entry point for Aconex. Just like with Global Login, you’ll be able to access all your Oracle Construction and Engineering projects with a single login, but you’ll also experience improved usability and functionality.

What you can expect:

  • Faster search
  • Favourite projects
  • Easily accessible project details
  • Enhanced user management
  • Updated design and visuals
  • Improved single sign-on (SSO)
