The start of the new year brings new and enhanced functionality across Autodesk Construction Cloud. This month, we’re excited to release feature additions and enhancements to Autodesk Build across cost, project management, data, and more.
Check out the latest updates for Autodesk Build.
*=features in both Autodesk Build & BIM 360
Personalize Autodesk Build notifications to stay up to date on projects. With New Project Frequency Defaults project members can tailor their email notifications to their preference.
Within the Report tool when viewing the Templates tab, users will now see a new column to filter and sort for ‘Updated by’. This will allow users to see who last updated each report template and gives more historical context.
The new progress tracking features within the Assets tool in Autodesk Build deliver a simple intuitive way to visually markup and track asset progress on 2D sheets. This keeps the office team aware of project progress and empowers field teams with productivity forecast to adjust or make improvements. It also helps to ensure that different trades and teams understand what’s ready now, what’s next, and what’s falling behind.
Users can now set asset category permissions within the settings tab of the Assets tool. This means that teams can now control which asset category types are able to be viewed depending on role-based permissions.
Within the contract full page view, users can visualize how each schedule of values (SOV) has evolved throughout the project. By turning on new columns, users can now easily see the original SOV, change orders, and revised SOV to have a granular view of costs.
To eliminate the risk of response due dates occurring over the weekend, users can now choose Workday(s) as an option when setting custom approval workflow response due dates.
Companies utilizing custom approval workflows for Cost Payment Applications can now choose whether to have the system automatically start the approval workflow or manually trigger an item to proceed. Manual trigger allows users to review and fix any issues with payment application before it proceeds in the defined workflow.
(For Customers that utilize capped retention, claimed and certified amount-based processes for payment applications) Within Cost Payment Applications, teams can now turn on a new column group to track claimed work completed, then shown alongside the certified/approved amounts and line-by-line comments to describe reasons for variances. Document templates are updated to pull this within generated documentation.
Within all table views within the Change Order tool, users now have the option to display associated xCO numbers (e.g., PCO, RFQ, COR, OCO, SCO) in a column for each cost item. With this activated, users can view and access information pertaining to the change order life cycle.
A new update to the Data Connector Assets Data Schema set and associated Power BI template to align with some of the changes that have been made within the Asset tool itself. Changes will be reflected in the ‘asset_permissons’ table. To learn more please visit our help site.
Users will be able to view the final response and the review responses of all the review steps on the Submittals items list.
When closing a Submittal, users will have the option to save the Submittal item to a selected folder within Files.
Now with the ‘Publish Closed Submittals to Files’ release users can also share closed submittals across projects or accounts using Bridge. This broadens the types of information that can be shared across projects and gives teams even more visibility and ownership of the data created during construction.
