Using an issue management platform like BIMcollab Cloud can save time, avoid mistakes and create transparency within a team. As powerful as BIMcollab’s issue management may be, if it is not used in a structured way, the full potential may not be reached.
By applying the points described below, issue management can maximize its potential and bring you all the benefits it promises.
Use the platform to communicate as often as possible about a project. This way all actions are transparent and team members can contribute and respond if needed. Use the 'type' of an issue to define the form of communication so it is possible to filter while handling the issues.
BIMcollab will automatically inform you about the changes made by other team members that concern you. This is immediately visible in the project dashboard when you login to your BIMcollab Cloud and select the project. You can activate e-mail notifications to receive a notification immediately, daily or weekly about the changes that concern you. As a project leader, you can receive a scheduled activity overview about the whole project.
Avoid delays in synchronization
Remember to click on the Synchronize the project button when you have finished your work. This way, you avoid synchronization delays, and minimize communication conflicts between team members working on the same issues.
Avoid using file based or offline communication. This leads to manual tasks to incorporate issues in BIMcollab Cloud. Which again could lead to delay and possibly mistakes as issues become out of sync.
