Identify yourself when working offline in the BCF manager

Identify yourself when working offline in the BCF manager

When working offline, your email address is used to identify yourself in the issues. 
The email address with which you have earlier connected to BIMcollab Cloud, will be used by default, but you can change it to another address if preferred. To do this, go to 'Show the BCF options'  in the toolbar and choose 'Settings'. Enter your default email address for the BCF Manager to use.

If you enter a new email address and save the settings, a new window will open in which you can add you name and role. 

This information is only used as your author name in the offline mode (when working on BCF files). If you connect to BIMcollab Cloud, the name of the logged in user is used for all modifications.
