Dear members of our community,
We are thrilled to share the updates to the site we have just made.
Our team has been reorganizing our platform's content, focusing on forum discussions and knowledge base articles.
We have created new top-level categories that will enhance your user experience. Let's dive into the details!
Previously, we categorized the content based on five main topics and workflow stages: Design, Document & Visualize, Collaborate, Setup & License, and Get Together. We have now reorganized the content to better align with the types of activities that our community engages in. This new logic has resulted in four main categories: Forum, Knowledge Base, Building Together, and Developer Hub.
We hope you find the content you seek and engage with your peers more easily.
Discussions are organized into the following boards: Installation and update, Licensing, Getting started, Modeling, Libraries & objects, Documentation, Visualization, BIMx, Project data & BIM, Teamwork & BIMcloud, Collaboration with other software, and Our Community.
We have created a new page that lists all the forum boards to provide you with a quick and comprehensive overview of all the available boards and their respective topics.
The new Forum page contains several new components:
New extra components: Unread Posts and Unanswered Topics – the accessibility of these is tied to specific higher community ranks. These components will help you stay up-to-date with the latest posts and changes on the forum.
Given that this forum is conducted in English, we want to make it easier for those who may not be comfortable posting in English to explore communities in other languages. As such, you will now see links to these communities when starting a new topic.
To maintain clarity in our forum conversations, we have implemented a new rule: threads that have been inactive for over a year will now be automatically locked, preventing further replies. This is to avoid confusion caused by replies to long-abandoned threads that sometimes make it difficult to understand the context of a new reply.
While the Wishes forum continues to have its board and works as before, we are working on introducing an improved system for handling wishes that will better serve the needs of our community.
*Note: Please note that you may see an unusually high number of new and unread posts due to the relocation of existing posts to new categories and boards, making them appear as new on their current locations. You can mark all posts as read by going to the Options menuof the forum board and selecting the "Mark all as read" command.
Articles have been organized into these new categories: Installation & update, Licensing, Getting Started, Modeling, Libraries & objects, Documentation, Visualization, BIMx, Project data & BIM, Teamwork & BIMcloud, Collaboration with other software, and Our Community.
We have created a new page that lists all the knowledge base categories to provide you with a quick and comprehensive overview of all the available topics.
The new Knowledge base category page contains several new components:
We have established a dedicated ‘Developer Hub’ category to provide better support to our developer community. While the existing Developer forum has already been moved to this new section, we are also developing additional content for this space. Keep an eye on Graphisoft Insights for further updates on this ongoing project.
For information and help using the site, please refer to the articles in the Our Community knowledge base category.
If you have any questions about the platform's functionality or encounter any errors, please post them on the Our Community forum board.
We would like to express our sincere gratitude to everyone who has contributed and shown patience during the recent changes to our platform. We hope that the new layout is easier to navigate and more intuitive for you. We are committed to continuing to improve our community and value your suggestions. Thank you for being a valuable part of our community!
