I am not sure how BIMCloud works as I don't use it.
I assume you would have to add the object to the BIMCloud library and then I am not sure if you have to re-share it with all users or if the users have to update their BIMCloud link or if that is automatically synced to their libraries.
But you will have to re-load the library in Archicad as Archicad does not detect external changes in a loaded library.

It has to be done through Archicad, not through BIMCloud web interface.
If you just uploaded a folder as the library as a BIMCloud Library there are two ways:
1. Add that BIMCloud library to an Archicad file and then select it in library manager and select that tab with that library name as the top. Reserve the folder you want to put it in and you can just drag and drop. 2. Add the new object to the original folder on your computer or network share. Go to Manage BIMCloud libraries. Select the library and click the update library button down the bottom. Navigate to the folder on your computer and network share. It should then say 1 item added. Any other users will see the new object when they do a Send Recieve.
A warning, if you add, delete or modify objects with Option 1, and the do a library update with option 2, you can inadvertently revert and of the changes you make with Option 2. I always recommend option 2 to keep the original folder and the BOMCloud library in sync.
if you uploaded the library as an LCF (gives increased performance for big libraries) you have to add the object and then repackage your lcf and then update via option 2.
