This release gives users more control over a range of features, including the values that appear in your projects’ Documents select lists, and who can access Connected BIM.

It also sees Field integrated into the main Aconex application — you no longer need to switch to a separate product to use Field functionality on your project.

Note that some of the items mentioned here will be released during this 30-day release cycle, rather than at its start. You may not see some of these additions until later in the cycle.

Sep 18, 2015

This release gives Aconex Project Owners more control over the metadata associated with project documents.

We’ve expanded the capabilities of cascading metadata, and provided functionality to turn off basic document auto-numbering.

We’ve also added the ability share both mail and documents searches project wide.

Aconex Field users will, as of this release, see images of issues appear as thumbnails in the Issues list.

We’ve also made it possible to delete linked documents from BIM objects. Don’t miss the new sectioning tool in Connected BIM, either.

If you use the Online Viewer or Connected BIM, you’ll need to change your browser.

This release heralds a new era for the Aconex Workflows module. Now you can use Workflows to manage a much wider range of business processes, as we’ve added the ability to create as many Review Status labels and sets as you like. You can also control who uses which sets. We’ve upgraded our APIs to handle this new functionality, too.

We’ve made improvements to the way Viewpoints and linked documents are handled in Connected BIM, to make the communication around models easier to access. And Reports users will see some new reports that didn’t make it into the last release.

Aug 17, 2015

Aconex Project Administrators now have a tool to build their own review status sets for Workflows and Supplier Documents. They no longer need to rely on a single set that’s chosen at the start of the project.

Jul 30, 2015

This month sees the full release of the new Reports module to all organizations on Aconex. The mail thread changes we released last month will become the default view for all users in this release, too.

Additionally, Connected BIM is now Mac-compatible, and we’ve made upgrades to Field and the Aconex APIs.

Note that some of the items mentioned here will be released during this 30-day release cycle, rather than at its start. You may not see some of these additions until later in the cycle.

Aconex Reports is a collection of predefined reports that make reporting on RFIs, Workflows, and Bids and Tenders easier.

Jun 24, 2015

We are making some changes to the network that will mean a change to the IP address used by Aconex in US & Latin America.

This month, users will see a raft of improvements to Aconex.

Significant upgrades to Aconex Mail have made mail threading easier to follow and mail metadata easier to find. Our Mail Search beta has also seen enhancements. Overall, it’s much easier to get a clear picture of what’s going on in your Aconex Mail.

Jun 16, 2015

This month, Aconex Mail is getting a significant upgrade. It’s the latest in a long line of improvements that, if you're like most people and you've been using our new Mail module, you’ll already be enjoying. And it marks a turning point for those users who haven’t yet switched to the improved Aconex Mail.
