Email Management

File Manager

Folder sharing

May 27, 2024

Share folders with project team members and stakeholders via email. Shared folders have a record copy created at the time of share. Any updates or changes made to files within a folder after the share will not be reflected in the share. For more information, see Create and Manage Folders in the File Manager.

EDMS file sharing

April 15, 2024

You can now easily share files from your connected EDMS data sources (Autodesk Docs and/or SharePoint) with all project stakeholders securely and see when the files were sent, who they were sent to, who downloaded the files. Shared files have a record copy created at the time of share. External team members will receive an email containing a link to download the record copy of the shared files.

You can see share actions and user downloads in the history of the files in the file manager. Any shares or updates made directly in SharePoint or any other external platforms will not be reflected in the history. For more information, see the Data Sources section on Newforma Konekt Help.


2D/3D Viewer

Procore Connector

Enable real-time syncing

April 15, 2024

For faster updates between Newforma Konekt and Procore, you can now enable real-time syncing. This involves establishing a seamless and instantaneous data exchange mechanism to ensure that changes made in one system are reflected in the other system in real-time.

The feature allows an admin from Procore to configure a webhook that is project to project between the two applications without the ability to be altered by another user in the Webhooks configuration page in Procore. Check out our Getting Started Tutorial to learn how to configure this feature.

Automate RFI and submittal transfers

February 12, 2024

We are pleased to announce the release of Newforma Konekt Procore connector for submittal and RFI workflow!

The Procore connector allows Procore users to send submittals and RFIs directly to Newforma Konekt for review by the design team.

When the review process is complete within Newforma Konekt, items are returned directly to Procore, allowing construction and design teams to work where they are most efficient without requiring anyone to double-enter data.

Once the necessary configurations have been made by an administrator in Procore, a Newforma Konekt project administrator can configure the connector settings from the RFIs or Submittals page (see Newforma Konekt for Procore: Getting Started Tutorial).

When an RFI or Submittal is assigned to a Ball in court user, the item is automatically transferred from Procore to Newforma Konekt as Pending. Once the item has been received, your team can complete their standard workflow.

For instructions on how to use this feature, please refer to the RFIs and Submittals help section.
