Edit Autodesk Construction Cloud ISO 19650 Naming Standard via Attributes

SHARE

I was, until recently, under the impression that one cannot add to the fields in the Autodesk Construction Cloud ISO 19650 naming standard. That is because I tried to add to the naming standard in the settings. Note, this inability to edit the naming standard happens as soon as you upload a file to the platform. I feel like a fool because I deleted all my folder’s contents in the past before editing a naming standard and then I restored the files after the edit.

One easy way for you to add an item to the naming standard fields (classified as “attributes”) is to edit the attributes. Go to the attribute that defines the field in the ISO 19650 naming standard, click on the ellipsis and then edit the attribute.

The edit attribute dialogue allows you to change the name of the attribute. The type of the attribute will be greyed out if there is a file in the folder structure. You can add a new value (which is the important bit), or you can also open the values in bulk edit mode to have access to many of them. However, existing values cannot be edited if you already have files in the folders, and at best their descriptions can be altered.

In conclusion, you do not need to empty your folders to add entries to the fields in the ISO 19650 naming standard. Just edit the attribute that corresponds to the naming field.
