Send a new mail from within Models
- Navigate the model to the viewpoint you want to show your mail recipients, and select any objects you want to discuss in your mail message.
- Click the Mail icon at the top right corner of the viewer, and select New mail.
- You’ll see Step 1 of the Mail wizard, the Screenshot markup page. If you'd like to annotate the screenshot, use the markup toolbar to the left of the view to add notes, boxes, and other highlights to the model view. When you’ve finished marking up the screenshot, click Next.
If you don't want to annotate the screenshot, click Skip.
You’ll see Step 2 of the Mail wizard, the New Mail page. The markup you created appears as a .png file attachment, and the mail Message area contains a hyperlink to the Models viewpoint in the 3D viewer.
Complete the mail as you would any Aconex mail, being sure to fill in all the mandatory fields. See more information on creating mail in Aconex.
Click Send. You’ll be taken back to the Models model, and you’ll see a confirmation message at the top of the page.
Your sent mail is saved in the Mail register along with all other project mail, and remains linked to the model views you've included.
The mail can also be access through the Selected object toolbar in the model view.
