View Active Collaborators in Real-Time Within a Model Using the Procore iOS App (10/27/2020)
Procore has released a new 'Follow Me' feature that provides users with the ability to see all other users within a BIM model in real-time, making meetings more efficient and allowing for clearer communication.
When two or more people are viewing the same model in the Models tool, the names of active users are shown on their current locations in the model. After clicking the Active Collaborators icon, you can select a specific user to follow in the model. This will automatically bring you to the user's location so that you can see what they are seeing in real-time 3D. See View Models (iOS)
