Reports | ‘Updated by’ column in Report Templates

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.

Assets | Progress Tracking + Assets [Coming Soon]

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.

Assets | Asset Category Permissions

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.

Cost Management Releases

Cost Management | Clear Schedule of Values Evolution within Contract View*

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.

Cost Management | New Custom Approval Workflow Response Due Option*

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.

Cost Management | Verification Setting for Cost Payment Application Approval Workflows*

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.

Cost Management | Certified/Claimed Work Completed Tracking and Reporting*

(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.

Cost Management | Display Associated xCO Number in all xCO Table Views*

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.

Data & Intelligence Releases 

Data Connector | Assets Data Schema / Template Update

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.

Project Management Releases

Submittals | New “Review Responses” Column

Users will be able to view the final response and the review responses of all the review steps on the Submittals items list.

Submittals | Publish Closed Submittals to Files

When closing a Submittal, users will have the option to save the Submittal item to a selected folder within Files.

Bridge | Share Closed Submittals

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.
