Mobile

What's new

Actions travel with you - Tasks arrive on Oracle Aconex Mobile.

Tasks for your mail and documents are now available on your mobile device. Now it's easier to keep track of items requiring your action wherever you are.

If you haven't yet made the switch to our new app, now is a good time to install it. We encourage you to start planning your transition to the new app, as support for the Mail and Docs app will be discontinued, and removed from the store by mid-2021.

Field

What's new

Easy copying and editing of issues.

If you’ve ever had the monotonous joy of creating many similar but slightly different issues, we’ve saved you some time.

We’ve added a copy feature so that it's more convenient to create multiple similar issues. Basically, you can copy an existing issue and then edit the issue details as you like. Once you’re happy with the edits and save, it will create a new issue. For example, if you had the same issue on every level of your thirty-story building, you could make one issue, copy it, and then edit the level number.

Packages

Improvements and Fixes

  • Deactivating a package type is no longer permanent. Package types can now be reactivated for use.
  • Fixed scenarios that could prevent some packages from being closed or reopened.
  • Improved performance when creating or filtering a package with multi-select project fields.
  • Filter your project fields list by typing into the dropdown.
  • The preference 'Rename files on download to include Document Number and Revision' is now considered when exporting packages.
  • In some circumstances, renaming attachments caused special characters to be added to the title or filename. We've fixed that.
  • Pagination and filters added to Packages API.

Models

Improvements and Fixes

Understanding design issues at a glance.

We've improved the Design Issue export - now each issue comes with its accompanying snapshots in an extra column, making exports more informative and easier to read.
 

Orthogonal support for Revit and Navisworks plugin.

Design issues can now be created in the orthogonal view, so you no longer have to switch perspective to capture an issue using the plugin.

Setup

What's new

More power for Org admins. Disable guest accounts within your organization.

We've made it easier to keep your list of users tidy. Guests created under your organization can now be disabled from the User Accounts List. Select the guest account and click Disable. Easy.

Allow other users to reset 2SV enrollment.

Ever had to reset 2-Step Verification for a user because they lost their phone or purchased a new tablet? Found it annoying that only you could do this for them? Well, now you can grant this responsibility to other members of your organization, so you have more time in your day.
Grant 2-Step Verification - Reset Enrollment to a role via User Role Configuration, and assign away. Learn how to reset 2-Step Verification (2SV) for a user in your organization.

Improvements and Fixes

User Role housekeeping.

We've taken the opportunity to rename and organize some permissions:

  • Renamed Login using 2-Step Verification to 2-Step Verification.

  • Grouped these permissions under a new Login heading.
