Bluebeam Tip: Streamlining Collaboration in Bluebeam Revu for Enhanced Large Team Productivity

Optimizing Bluebeam Revu for large teams requires an understanding of the collaboration features and best practices that promote efficiency and productivity. Today's tip focuses on how you can streamline processes and ensure your large team works together seamlessly within Bluebeam Software.

  • Set Up Centralized Profiles: Ensure that all team members are working with the same tools and interface by creating centralized profiles. This standardizes the workspace across your team and can be managed by IT or a Revu administrator.
  • Use Bluebeam Studio: Studio Projects and Studio Sessions allow teams to collaborate on the same documents in real-time or at their convenience. Track all activities, maintain version control, and ensure that everyone is always working on the latest files.
  • Customize Tool Chests: Develop shared Tool Chests with commonly used markups and symbols. Sharing these with the team ensures consistency in annotations and streamlines the review process.
  • Manage Permissions: Configure permissions properly in Studio to control who can view, edit, or add comments to your documents. This helps to manage the process and avoid unauthorized changes.
  • Implement Templates: Create templates for repetitive tasks and documents such as reports, RFIs, and submittals to save time and maintain consistency across different projects.
  • Markup Accountability: Leverage the Markups List to track who added which comment or markup. This accountability ensures clarity in communication and task assignment within the team.
  • Batch Processes: Utilize Bluebeam's batch processes for tasks like slip sheeting, hyperlinking, and applying stamps to handle multiple documents at once, saving considerable time.
  • Training: Ensure that all team members are knowledgeable about the features and tools in Bluebeam Revu. NOVEDGE offers resources and training sessions tailored to your team’s needs.
  • Regular Reviews: Conduct regular review sessions to discuss current workflows, identify bottlenecks, and adapt processes to improve team efficiency.
