If you are the first user from your company, a default team will be created automatically for users from your domain. You will be the admin for the team. You can later promote other users to be additional admins.

Go to the Search page and type in search terms. We prepared a tiny sample database for you to try searches in.
3 Add a Autodesk® BIM 360® project (for now Autodesk® Revit® only)
Up until now, drawings are probably put on the shelf after a project is built. Knowledge must not. Click a button to lift these drawings to become just a few keystrokes away. Click on your profile icon in the upper right-hand corner. Go to the Manage Data page from the menu (it is visible only to admins). In the Project section, you can connect to a BIM 360 account and add/update projects hosted in that BIM 360 account to the repository. Today the supported project format is Revit. It supports projects in Revit 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022.
In case your project is not hosted on BIM 360, we provide a locally installed Revit addin that can harvest from your desktop. Contact support to request it.
