BuildingConnected helps keep your project files organized by allowing you to upload them directly into a project. This functionality in turn makes it easy for subcontractors to access the necessary files and to submit their bid from a single place. This article explains how to upload files at the project level.
Files uploaded at the project level can be accessed by every bidder that was invited to the project. For instructions on how to upload files that can only be accessed by bidders invited to a specific bid package, please reference the article: How general contractors can upload files into bid packages.
To upload a project file
Start by going to the “Files” tab for the appropriate project.
From your desktop, drag the file you wish to upload and drop it on this page. This step will automatically start the upload.
You will see the uploaded file listed under the project’s “Files” tab.
Alternately, you can use the “Upload Files” button. Start by clicking on “Upload Files.”
Next, you will see a window where you can chose the file you want to upload. Once you find the appropriate file, click “Open.” This will automatically trigger the upload.
You will see the file listed in the project’s “Files” tab.
To upload a project file into a folder
Start by going to the “Files” tab for the appropriate project. Locate the folder into which you want the file to be uploaded. Click on the folder icon located next to the folder’s name.
To add a new folder, click on "+ New Folder" and enter the folder's name.
Once the folder icon changes from closed to open, click on “Upload Files.”
You will see a window where you can chose the file you want to upload. Once you find the appropriate file, click “Open.” This will automatically trigger the upload.
Once the upload is complete, you will see the uploaded file listed beneath the folder.
If you’d like to continue to add files to the same folder, follow the same steps above. If you are done uploading files into a folder, click on the folder icon a second time so that it is closed. This will ensure that any additional files that are uploaded to the project are not added to the existing folder.
