Sync and Download Drawings (Android)

Objective

To sync and download drawings on an Android mobile device.

Background

The Drawings Sync feature allows users to download the most recent drawings and revisions so that they can access and store the latest building information on their Android mobile device. The first time you open the Drawings tool for a project, you will need to download drawings before you can view them. You can download drawings by discipline, which will download all drawings within that discipline, and you can also download drawings individually from any discipline. At any point after drawings have been downloaded, you can choose to sync drawings to check for updates. 

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • 'Read only' and above permissions on the Drawings tool.
  • Additional Information:
    • If you or another team member marks up a drawing while offline, or someone uploads a new version, you will need to re-sync the changes while on an internet or network connection in order to view the most current information. See Sync Drawings below.
