Field Administrator Kit

Set up and run Field projects smoothly with this comprehensive kit.

1. Register with Aconex

Register with Aconex, if your organization isn’t already registered.

If it is, contact your Aconex Organization Administrator and ask them for access to the project. Your Aconex login will also give you access to Field.

Register with Aconex

2. Prepare your project hierarchy

Prepare your project hierarchy and send it to us.

If your project’s not already in Aconex, we’ll create it there. Then we'll set up your project's areas in Field.

prepare hierarchy

Oracle Aconex support staff will activate Field for your project. Field project administrators can then add subsequent areas in Aconex via Field/  Project Settings.

Alternatively, BEFORE you start logging issues you can send Oracle support staff your project areas and we will add them to your project in bulk. Note that you have to send these to us BEFORE you raise any issues in Field, as once you and the project team have started using Field we cannot administer these areas.

For more information on setting up field, see Get Started Using Field.

3. Invite people to your Aconex Project

Invite people and organizations to your Aconex Project.

If the project’s already in Aconex, most of your Field participants may already be on the project. You won’t need to invite them again.
