In the second part of this series, we will cover the steps that will need to be followed your Autodesk Subscription Manager to assign a BIM 360 Team Hub to your subscription contract. You can also read part one of this series “Autodesk BIM 360 Team – A Common Data Environment for Collaboration”
NOTE: Multiple contracts can be assigned to one hub to either transition to a new contract with different terms or to add access through a new subscription. In layman’s terms, if you add additional subscription seats of BIM 360 Team at a later date, then you normally want these to be added to your original contact and Hub.
Login to Manage.Autodesk.com as the Software Coordinator on the BIM 360 Team/Collaboration for Revit contract and click on "Access now" under BIM 360 Team. You (Software Coordinator) must have a seat for the product assigned to you or you will not see BIM 360 Team on the Products and Services page.
NOTE: If you just had the seat assigned to you, you will not see the BIM 360 Team access for up to 4 hours. Patience is a virtue I was always told.
Click on "Access Now" to be directed to the contract assignment page. From this page, the purchased contract can be assigned to respective BIM 360 Team hub by selecting the Team hub and clicking on "Assign Contract" option.
If the required hub is not listed in the drop down, you can enter the hub URL manually in the input field.
Once the contract is assigned to a Team hub, the "Contract Listing" page accessed via the Admin panel, will show the details of the contract, along with the Hub to which the contract has been assigned.
You can update the Name of the Team Hub yourself. Autodesk will have set this name based on your Contract Managers details. Have the Team Administrator access the Admin panel and select Team Information in order to make the desired changes.
Then, select Edit and change the name. Note that Autodesk automatically adds the word “Team” as a prefix, so you do not need to do so.
Once the contract is successfully assigned, the subscription details will show up in the BIM 360 Team hub dashboard.
Once a Hub is set up, you can create your first new project.
