Creating a Registered Company

The purpose of this article is to show you how you can create and edit a registered Company. Reg. Companies are required before adding a user to the project room.

In the registered Company area under Contacts, the new user must be registered accordingly in their company. This is used to bundle several users in a company, to grant them certain rights and to collect information in one place.

Create a reg. company

To create a new company, switch to the Contacts area. Select New and Create Reg. Company.


A window with several tabs opens. Fields with a star are mandatory and must be filled out.

General Tab

In the Company (short form) field you can store the creator code (often 3-digit) to inform the users, which may also be used in drawing and document management.


The creator code is not automatically saved in the configuration. It must be created there separately! To find out how, see Code Maintenance 


The company ID must be unique across all projects on the entire Thinkproject platform. It should therefore be structured as follows: YYMMDD-II-NN


  • YYMMDD the date on which you create the company,
  • II your initials and
  • NN is a two-digit sequential number

The hyphens in the example only serve to illustrate the structure of the company ID and should be left out when creating the company ID.


When John Smith creates his third company on this day on 02/01/2016, it will receive the company ID: 160201JS03


When you have entered all the necessary information, click on Create to create the registered company.

Edit a reg. company

To edit a registered company, move the mouse over the folder symbol in front of the company. Then click on Edit Reg. Company.


The same window opens as under General Tab


The mandatory fields on the General tab can only be changed by Thinkproject.


Screenshots are an example. The interface of your platform may look different, but the processes remain the same.

Some of the functions shown may differ slightly depending on the release version of your project room.
