In Bluebeam REVU, participants in a Studio Session can add comments to documents and apply any of the markup tools that are typically available in Bluebeam REVU. When working in a Studio Session, this markup ability even extends to participants who are using the free Bluebeam VU program. Jim demonstrates how to apply markups and comments and show how participants can repy to these comments.
- [Voiceover] So once I start getting files in there…that need to be reviewed and commented on,…I need to start doing that, I need to start adding markups…and comments to these files so let's take a look…at how to start that process.…So I'm gonna choose this one, I'm gonna choose the WD40…and we just click on that…and it's gonna open up here in my screen.…I'm gonna go ahead and close the left screen panel…because I don't need any file access right now…and I'm just gonna give myself a little more viewing room.…
So, again, you can see we've got our…completed submittal package here…and I need people to start commenting on this.…I need people to start approving it or rejecting it…and in order for them to do that,…they need to know that it's here and it's ready for comment…so, unless these attendees regularly check in…and see that there's documents that have been added,…they're not gonna have any way of knowing…that we've started the process,…so obviously I could email them and say,…"Hey, go long into Bluebeam Studio…
The end result is an easily accessible electronic package, with a hyperlinked chemical list that acts as a clickable table of contents—all with considerably less effort. Jim Rogers shows how to set up a project, start a studio session for collaboration, invite collaborators to the review process, set up an approval workflow, and combine all the submitted sheets into a single PDF file that can be searched and shared. Plus, learn how to keep a session open for additional submittals or archive it when a project is over.
