Files are super easy to upload, organize, and manage in each BuildBook project.
There's no limit to what you can upload, from the construction agreement you have with your client to plans, drawings, or inspiration pics. Store anything here that will help your team and client have access to all the information they need during the course of the project.
By default, files are visible to your Pro Team members and any collaborators you add. You can choose to share files with clients.
In your Files tab either click "Upload Files" and upload from your device - or simply drag and drop the file you want to upload.
Organize your files with folders by clicking "New Folder" and adding as many folders as you need.
Easily move files into different folders by dragging and dropping them. Files are automatically sorted by the date they were last updated. If you want to move a file out of a folder, just drag it to the "Up a Level" link inside the folder.
To the right of each file and file folder is a menu with three dots that will give you the option to do a few things with files:
Download: download files to your device
Rename: easily give files or folders new names
Trash: delete unwanted files. Trashed files are relocated to the Deleted Files folder, where you can permanently delete them if you need to.
By default, files and folders are only visible to project members with Full Access permission. You can optionally choose to share files and folders with Clients and Limited Access members.
To share a file or folder with other roles, click the ••• menu, and choose "Share with Client" or "Share with Limited Access Members"
A colored tag appears next to the file or folder, letting you know who can see it.
Note: If you share a folder, everything in that folder is also shared.
We recommend creating folders for your Client or Limited Access members, and uploading all files you'd like to share with each role inside of it.
File types that are viewable (PDFs, images) can also be previewed by simply clicking on the file name and opening the item. You can also download the file from the preview by clicking the three dots in the upper right and clicking Download.
