BIMcollab Space account

BIMcollab Space account

In the BIMcollab ecosystem, there are two different kinds of accounts.
  1. Your BIMcollab ID
    An overarching, personal account, which contains your personal information. For more information, consult the article My BIMcollab ID.
  2. Space account
    An account specific to the private BIMcollab space you have been added to.

Space account

A Space account is specific to the private BIMcollab Nexus space you are added to.
The information in this account consists of your name and initials, and can be edited by both; you and the administrator of your space. This information is owned by the space administrator. Only the language setting is personal to you.
You will have a separate Space account for every private space you are a part of, so the information can differ across spaces.

This account is created for you when:
  1. You are added to a private BIMcollab Nexus space
The infographic below shows the differences between Space accounts and your BIMcollab ID.
