  • Messages
    • Received, Sent, Drafts, Report / Reminder Template, etc.
  • Document types
    • Tasks, project documents, drawings & drawing reviews, defect management, etc.
Action Area


  • Menu, e.g. for setting documents, downloading, user settings
Content Area


Depending on the document type selected in the navigation area, e.g. drawing management, you will find all the filter results from your messages and documents here. TEST

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.
