Autodesk Collaborate Pro – Bridged for Design Collaboration


I was caught be surprise the other day when a client expressed a wish to link their team in their hub into a another’s hub’s swim lane. I was not aware that it was possible. After initially expressing an opinion that it would be very useful, I found after a cursory glance at the internet that it is indeed possible.

Caught unawares, I was hard pressed to get the workflow operational within an hour, but we did it, proving not only that it is possible, but relatively easy set up.

There are clear advantages to having a bridged team. One can administer one’s one users as an admin on a hub without relying on the host’s administrator. That means that one can operate at times where it would not be possible to operate. It would not be appreciated if you phone up the host admin at 02:00 in the morning, for instance. One can also operate on a HUB with one’s own file structure and standards in place.

To bridge a project, the host hub must send an invite to the Team project hub that is about to join. It is easiest to do that if one is given admin permission on both projects/hubs.

After you bridged the projects, you can bridge the teams into the swim lane.
