If you do not yet have a BIMcollab ID, you can directly create one from the login window.
Once the activation is complete, you can use the BCF Manager to its full potential. The activation is valid for 30 days, and is automatically renewed when you open the application within that timeframe. If you haven't used the BCF Manager in over 30 days, you will be asked to log in again the next time you start it.
For activation, you must be connected to the internet. If the BCF Manager cannot connect to the internet, you can still use it in offline mode. It will try to activate the next time you have an internet connection.
If your company makes use of a proxy server, you can enter your proxy settings by going to the BCF Manager settings. In the settings window, activate 'Enable proxy server', and enter the proxy settings.
