BIMcollab Twin | 14-09-2023

Build number 3.8.5
The biggest change in this release is a technical one. We migrated the application from .NET3.1 to .NET6. As a user you will not notice much of this because it all happens in the background. We have also resolved a number of bugs and you will of course benefit immediately from this. 

New

  1. Migration from ASP.NET Core 3.1 to .NET6
  2. Descriptions given to control and assessment tasks in a workflow are now also shown for the relevant tasks that arise from the workflow.

Bug fixes

  1. Fixed: Placeholders were not shown in document sets.
  2. Fixed: Viewing PDF documents from the details page of a document version did not work.
  3. Fixed: Attachments were always linked to the latest version of a document and not to the selected version.
  4. Fixed: Downloading an upload list without documents returned an empty zip file. The upload list was therefore not sent.
  5. Fixed: In two more places the upload list was not completely filled in and columns remained empty.

Build number 3.8.4
This release brings improvements to the new download menu and a number of API extensions. Downloading documents is in so many places in the application that it turned out that we had overlooked two more. In addition, the upload list was not completely completed in all places and columns remained empty. That has been corrected with this update.

New

  1. Changed download menu: the menu has now been made the same in even more places.
  2. The location code, project and project phase have been added to the Location endpoint in the API.
  3. You can search for labels in the Documents endpoint via the API.
  4. All endpoints in the API can now be accessed with client credentials grant.

Bug fixes

  1. Fixed: Downloading a document list that also contained placeholders did not work.
  2. Fixed: When uploading a new version of a document, the scale and paper size were not correctly copied from the upload list.
  3. Fixed: Deleting objects gave an error and the objects were not actually deleted.
  4. Fixed: It turned out not to be possible to delete document sets.
  5. Fixed: When editing an existing document, it was not possible to select floors in the spatial structure in some projects.

Build number 3.8.3

New

  1. Changed Download Menu: The menu is now made the same in all locations. And some new options have been added, such as only downloading an upload list and downloading files with the linked files.
  2. Through account settings, administrators can now easily remove labels from all documents and communications at once.
  3. Metadata of multiple documents at the same time can be easily modified using an Excel file. This function is always performed in consultation with a BIMcollab Twin administrator.
  4. The DWG viewer now opens files in zoom extents, allowing you to view the entire file at once.
  5. The DWG viewer always shows the latest version of a file (and its xrefs). This caused some confusion, so a message has been added to older versions of a DWG file to inform users of this.

Bug fixes

  1. Fixed: Deleting location groups in the “My Projects” overview did not work correctly when working within a location group.
  2. Fixed: With Teams within a Project Phase you also saw teams from other phases within the same project. Now you only see the teams that actually have access to the relevant phase.
  3. Fixed: The old PDF viewer has been disabled because it could always only show the latest version of a document and not older versions. This caused confusion when you switched between the old and the new viewer for a PDF with multiple versions.
  4. Fixed: Sender was not changed after editing reply by colleague. Now the sender is always listed as the person who last changed the answer.
  5. Fixed: DWG viewer not always opening in Model-space.
  6. Fixed: Columns with free fields showed all linked values. This quickly caused tables to become messy and confusing. The columns now show up to three values and tell you if there are more. You can then find the other values in the document details.
  7. Fixed: Sometimes the overview of sent notifications in the personal environment was not displayed correctly and a 500 error occurred

Build number 3.8.2

New

  1. Two significant improvements have been added to the Forms:
  2. The forms module now also fully works on mobile devices such as telephones and tablets.
  3. Other applications can now retrieve forms via the API.
  4. A number of optimizations have been made to ensure that pages load faster if they contain a lot of information.
  5. For control and assessment tasks, users can view the documents directly in the PDF viewer, eliminating the need to download them first.

Bug fixes

  1. Fixed: Due to a permissions issue, some users were unable to view details of 3D objects.
  2. Fixed: Users who log in via SSO did not have their login attempts saved to the database.
  3. Fixed: Files of 0 byte size (empty files) could be placed on BIMcollab Twin. However, these are either corrupt files or files that have not yet been synced to the user's computer (for example via OneDrive). Therefore, these files are skipped when uploading and users are notified that the files were not added.
  4. Fixed: In the download list of approved documents, description 1 of documents was not shown.
  5. Fixed: Some PDF files were “cut up” when the application stamped the PDF. This made the PDF no longer readable.
  6. Fixed: Users received a 500 error if a project name or code was entered that was the same as an existing project. Now users will be notified that the name or code already exists.



BIMcollab Twin | 18-03-2023

Build number 3.8.1

New

  1. If it appears in the dwg viewer that xrefs are not linked to a document while they are on BIMcollab Twin, you can easily link them within the dwg viewer. It's just a matter of clicking a button once and the dwg is complete again!
  2. It is possible for recipients of questions and action items to forward items to other users and thus make them responsible for the question or action item in question.
  3. Previously you could only add locations to location groups, and now it is also possible to choose a location group for a location.
  4. The overview list of documents shows which objects the document is linked to. However, this list could become quite long, making it unworkable. That is why the list now shows a maximum of three lines containing, if applicable, the number of objects that are not shown.
  5. It has become possible to add metadata fields to documents within an account. For the time being, this can only be done on request by BIMcollab Twin employees, but in the future account administrators will be able to set this up themselves. This gives customers the flexibility to adapt metadata to their own work processes.
  6. XLSM files and other Microsoft files are recognized and displayed with the correct symbol in the list of documents.
  7. The attachment symbol is shown on the dashboard for documents that have an attachment.

Bug fixes

  1. Fixed: When uploading more than a hundred files at the same time, the application sometimes crashed.
  2. Fixed: The search field for documents on the dashboard did nothing.
  3. Fixed: When pressing the Enter key in table search fields, the page was refreshed. The Enter key is now ignored, leaving users on the page in question.
  4. Fixed: Exporting the document list to Excel did not work if a metadata field was empty in one of the documents.



BIMcollab Twin | 25-02-2023

Build number 3.8
With this update, users can log in even more easily via Single Sign On. This means that users can choose to use their account with Microsoft or SurfConext to log in to BIMcollab TwinThis means you no longer have to remember an extra password and you can log in faster.

New

  1. Log in via Single Sign On: Use your Microsoft or SurfConext account to log in to BIMlink.
  2. A number of improvements surrounding the integration of BIMcollab. For example, you can create new issues via BIMcollab Twin and save them at BIMcollab.

Bug fixes

  1. Fixed: When drawing a shape in the PDF viewer, the fill color became transparent by default. We have noticed that users have a much greater need for this.
  2. Fixed: When uploading new documents, all linked objects were also shown in the spatial structure.
  3. Fixed: The selection of location groups in the project environment was also used in the account settings, but were not customizable there. Very inconvenient because it was unclear why not all location groups were shown.
  4. Fixed: The house number field for addresses when adding companies was displayed very unclearly.
  5. Fixed: Notification topics were displayed on the personal dashboard.
  6. Fixed: The same label could be linked to a document twice. This gave error messages in various places.
  7. Fixed: Objects that were not linked to a floor were not displayed in the 2D floor plans.
  8. Fixed: When adding a question or action item that was linked to a floor, it was not possible to select a recipient.
  9. Fixed: The external link entered in the upload list ended up with the external reference. External link is linked to a version of a document, external reference to the document.
