Entering a Shared Cost Workspace

How to enter a Shared Cost workspace.

External consultants can be given access to your Cost information, so they can support you and work as if they were a member of your organization, while still using their own Aconex user account.

A typical use for this setup is when an organization engages an external project management or cost consulting firm to handle all the cost and contract tasks.

Swapping Workspaces

Once the client organization has granted the external user access to their workspace, you can easily change workspaces to see the data.

  1. Login to Aconex using your own account, and make sure you are on the correct project.
  2. Double click the Cost tab to open the Cost Administration page
  3. Using the Workspace menu in the top left, select the Client organization.
  1. Using the left menu under Cost Administration, or the Cost tab, select Cost Management.
  1. You are now viewing the Client’s cost data and will be directed to the Cost Worksheet or Contracts register, depending on your permissions.

You can only view Cost information using this process. You can never view the Mail or Documents from another organization.
