    While companies try to adapt BIM 360 software to their projects and integrate with their existing workflow, one of the challenges is setting up projects in scale. While using a product’s web user interface may be enough for a few projects, tasks involved in setting up projects—such as adding users and building a standard folder structure with appropriate user permissions—can easily become time-consuming, tedious, error-prone manual labor. In this class, we will show you a tool that helps you set up projects in bulk by importing from CSV files. The tool consists of a collection of commands that you can run in combination. The features include: creating projects, populating users and company, setting up services, adding users to projects, and creating folders with user permissions. The tool is a desktop application written in .NET using Forge APIs. For those who wish to further customize the tool to integrate with their enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems, we will share the source code and explain implementation detail.
