Support Central will be taking a maintenance break on Sunday 25 February 2018 – 2 hours, between 8pm and 10pm AEST.

This article relates to a feature that will soon be retired and may already be out of service for some users.
Please see note at the top of the article for more information.

Download multiple document files

Select and download document files onto your computer.

Attention: The Multiple File Download option has been removed from Transmittals and will soon be removed from use in the Document Register, which is currently scheduled for the 17.9 release in mid September 2017. 

It uses very old Java Applet technology which is no longer supported by modern browsers.

We recommend using the Zip Download or Zip download with Markups option in Transmittals. This feature is also available from the Tools dropdown menu in the Document Register, shown in the image below:

  1. Choose your project in the Project Selector at the top of the page.

  1. Click Documents on the Module Menu, and under Search, click Document Register.

  2. Click the Search button.

  1. Select the checkbox for each document that you want to download.
Doc Search Results Select Doc CheckBx
  1. Click the Tools button and choose Zip Download or Zip Download with Markups.
  1. If you’ve selected Zip Downloads with Markups, the files will be converted to PDF.
  1. If you’ve selected a large number of files, it may take quite a while for the download to begin.
  1. Once the download is completed, you’ll get the usual prompts from your internet browser.

Integrating with Aconex APIs

Additional functionality for downloading files is available via Aconex APIs.

These are useful if you’d like to:

  • Periodically update local copies of document files with new revisions.
  • Specify a different destination location for each document file.
  • Rename document files as you download each one.
Any feedback?
