After setting up a new construction project in PlanGrid, an admin user has to import the construction drawings or blueprints, which PlanGrid refers to as sheets. Jim shows how to import construction plan sheets from a computer or a cloud storage account.
- [Instructor] With my new project created…and set up in PlanGrid,…the next thing I wanna do…is add my construction drawings,…so we can get to work on this project.…Now, the construction drawings or plans or blueprints,…those are all referred to here in PlanGrid…as sheets and you can see here…that we don't have any in this project yet.…So, to fix that, I'm gonna click on Add Sheets…from here in the web app.…Now, just a reminder, I really encourage you…to only add sheets from the web app.…You can add sheets from the Windows app…but it doesn't allow you the versioning control…that the web app does…and I'll show you that here in just a second.…
