Creating an issue in our addin is quite simple. You can add questions directly while viewing the model and not leave your actual reviewing context. We offer two ways to create an issue ; from a location mark or a Viewpoint/selection of elements. The issues will appear identically across all platforms.
Issue from a Location Marker
You can add manual pinpoint to create an issue in your models and 2D sheets in the add-ins with the button «». Although this may seem similar to adding a view, this location allows you to create an issue that appears as a pinpoint.
Issue from a Camera/Element selection/Viewpoint
You can publish, view, edit, comment on, or add information to existing issues directly from the add-ins. When an issue has been located, simply select the elements related to it and follow these quick steps:
- Click the Create Issue button.
- Give the issue a title, description and fill in the needed attributes .
- Click « Publish » to send the issue to BIM Track.
BIM Track takes a snapshot of the issue on screen while recording the geolocation in the model along with the view state.
Issue Title, Description, and Attributes
The issue title should be as quick, informative and descriptive as possible. Use the description portion of the dialog box to add any and all needed information for a better understanding. The attributes to be filled in will allow for granular metrics and reports. Some of the attributes will need mandatory fields filled in before the Publish button is enabled. These presets are controlled in the project settings and have been defined by the project creator/admin.
When this is enabled BIM Track saves and displays the section plane/box and any hidden element overrides and any addition transparency overrides that may have been applied to the view prior to issue creation. You can find this option in all add-ins in the « Settings »
