Q: What is the benefit of having access to Workflow Extensions?
A: The file-based approach to managing project data results in a large number of files, versions, and folders, which makes it extremely challenging for team members to find the right data at the right time to make informed decisions. Processes such as materials management, quality assurance, and project planning can truly benefit from data that is available directly in the context of 3D models. Instead of combing through rows in a spreadsheet or sorting through markups in multiple sets of drawings, simply click on an element to see the material status, QA results, or planning dates. With Trimble Connect Workflow Extensions this, and much more, becomes possible.
Q: As a Personal or Business user, what does it mean to have read-only access to Workflow Extensions?
A: Users with read-only access can still consume data that has been created through the Workflow Extensions (Property Sets, Content Browser, Organizer). However, to realize the full benefits of the Workflow Extensions, users must have a Business Premium license. This provides read and write capabilities and enables users to customize workflows based on their unique project needs.
Q: Where can I learn more about the Workflow Extensions?
A: To learn more about how you can use Workflow Extensions to access constructible data, make informed decisions, and enable true project collaboration, check out our Community Forum post, "Introducing Trimble Connect Workflow Extensions".
