Document Management

Sheets | Filter by Locations and Disciplines (Mobile) – Members on mobile have an improved filtering experience for their sheets, with the new ability to filter by locations and disciplines. This new capability allows field teams to narrow the scope of their search to focus on the data they truly need.

Project Management Releases

Submittals | Allow Reopening Unreviewed Items – Users are able to reopen Submittal items that were closed before being fully reviewed.

Submittals | Reports Improvements –Users are able to customize their exported submittal item reports in the items list and the item details page by deciding what option to include in their reports. (i.e. Photos, References, Embed attachments, etc…)

Product Experience | Partial Download for Photos – On mobile, members can perform a partial of their photos when syncing their projects instead of a full download.

RFIs | Create RFIs from Markups on Mobile – While on Sheets, users are able to create new RFIs from markups on mobile along with adding links to existing RFIs.

Quality and Safety

Forms | Template Builder Update [Coming Soon] – Create flexible review workflows and get approvals faster with the Forms Template Builder Update. When creating a form template, Autodesk Build members will be able to require an optional ‘In Review’ step and assign a Person, Role or Company to approve with a signature or send back with comments. Forms terminology is updated to reflect workflow actions, and closed forms without review will be able to be reopened by managers.

Forms | Form Description Column – Create descriptive forms. The Forms Description Column update will add a column in the Forms web view that displays the forms description.

Issues | Due dates in Issue Templates – Assign deadlines to issue templates within projects. Now, members can create issues created with default due dates within projects.

Issues | Manage Fields in Issue Detail Report – Bring focus to important information within issue reports. With Manage Fields in Issue Detail Report, teams can select what fields are displayed, and the order they’re shown, in issue detail and summary reports.

Schedule

Schedule | Suggestion Summary Excel Report – Schedule suggestions help improve communication, ensuring any required schedule adjustments can be made quickly to keep projects on track. Users can now filter the suggestions table as needed and export them to Excel, further extending the use of the suggestions made and their status.

Schedule | Microsoft Project Custom Attributes Support – When importing schedules from Microsoft Project, users now have access to custom attributes within their schedule. Custom attributes are also available while filtering the schedule and the attribute columns can be toggled on and off for easier consumption while in list view.
