Autodesk Integrations

Join integrates with many of your favorite Autodesk products, including Revit, BIM 360 and Autodesk Docs.

Streamline how you work by utilizing the following Join integrations with the Autodesk family of products:

  1. Link your BIM 360, Autodesk Docs, and Autodesk Construction Cloud documents to Join Items and Milestones

  2. Use Join in an Autodesk Partner Card

  3. View your Revit models in Join with the built-in Revit Viewer

1. Adding Attachments from your BIM 360 or Autodesk Docs workspace

By leveraging your BIM 360 or Autodesk Docs workspace, Join ensures your team is always working with the latest design iteration.

Organize your design files by linking your Autodesk account with Join. By linking PDFs, Revit files, spreadsheets, and other documents stored in Autodesk to the relevant Items and Milestones, you can ensure that you always have the latest version of each document at your fingertips. This eliminates the need to keep track of multiple copies and simplifies your workflow. 

First, link to your Autodesk Account

  1. Select the Add a file button either in the Milestone attachments or Item Attachments
  2. Select Link Accounts under the Cloud Storage section
  3. Select the Sign in to Autodesk button
  4. Enter your Email, and select the Next button
  5. Enter your Password, and select the Next button
  6. Select the Allow button

Now you're ready to add your documents

  1. Select the Add a file button either in the Milestone attachments or Item Attachments
  2. Under Cloud Storage, select Autodesk 
  3. Navigate the folder structure to the documents that you want to attach (only the Shared Documents folder can be accessible from Join)
  4. Select them by checking the box on the left-hand side 
  5. Select Add Files in the lower right corner

Caution: By linking the attachment through Autodesk, the visibility of the linked document will be subject to the permission set in both Join and Autodesk.
