Bluebeam Cloud: What It Is, How It Works, & How to Leverage It

Bluebeam Cloud is a subscription-based mobile solution accessible through app or browser devices. It enables users to access drawings, markups, RFIs, and submittals while on the go. With this mobile solution, users no longer require a desktop device to access tools/features.

 

To gain access to Bluebeam Cloud, users must be assigned to a seat of Revu21 in the Subscription Management Portal.

 

To access the Bluebeam Cloud application, start by navigating to app.bluebeam.com. Remember, this can be accessed through any device with an internet connection. Select the US (North American Servers) region and sign into your account.

Immediately after logging in, you can choose between “My Workspace” or “Projects.”

Picture-3-Bluebeam-Cloud-My-Workspace-ProjectsMy Workspace: This location is meant for personal use. Use this location to store, view, and markup files of your own. Only you have the ability to see the files in your “My Workspace”

Projects: This location is meant for collaborating with others. You can upload, store, view, and markup files together in this location. Any Project you create or are invited to will be listed.

 

The Dashboard tab gives an overview of the selected Project.

The Drawing tab is a location to share documents across teams. Select “Add Drawings” in the tab to publish the files you want to collaborate. Then, you can view, markup, manage RFI’s, and Punch items.

The Documents tab is a location to store and markup files. Note: In this location, users cannot access the RFI and Punch tools.

You can place a Punch item by navigating to the Drawings tab and opening a file. Once you place the punch item, a window displays for the user to enter the pertinent information.

Once in the file, you can track and manage the RFIs added to a Project. Once an RFI is closed, you can mark the RFI location in the document.

From the Submittals tab, you can create and assign submittals. Upload a template, log, set status, and export submittals.
