Adding and editing areas in your Field project

A step-by-step guide to adding, editing and deleting areas on your project in Field.

The areas were preloaded when your project was initially set up in Field, but you can make changes at any time.

Opening the Areas section

  1. Log into Aconex.
  2. Select Field > Settings.
The Field Project Settings.
  1. Select Areas and sub-areas. This will display the areas that are currently available in your project.
The Settings options showing the Areas options.
  1. Find the area that you want to add sub-areas to. Click on the arrow icon to expand or contract the areas of your project. This example shows that after clicking on Area 01 (Res), we can see the Basement and its sub-areas.
