OpenSpace: Autodesk RFI - Field Note Integration
OpenSpace: Autodesk RFI - Field Note Integration
Updated over a week ago

OpenSpace supports Field Note Integration with Autodesk Construction Cloud (ACC). The ACC platform includes Autodesk Build which combines the best of PlanGrid and BIM360 with new functionality to create a comprehensive field Solution. Autodesk Build provides a toolset for managing, sharing, and accessing project documents to streamline workflows between the Field and Project teams. The quality and safety of the project is tracked using Issues and RFIs - for the flow of information in the project.

Note - ACC RFI Integration is currently in Beta. Please contact Support or your CSM to enable the feature.
