Adding a BIM 360 Account Admin

One of the first things you’ll want to do with your new BIM 360 account is add one or more account administrators. Why? First of all, you don’t want to be the only one with admin capabilities. What happens if you’re out of the office or unavailable for some reason. Second, what if you’re an IT Manager or in some other non-BIM role. You won’t want to be hands on with the day-to-day activities of creating projects, managing members, etc. You’ll be glad you added additional account admins to offload these tasks, for sure.

Adding one or more account admins is easy. Here’s how it’s done:

You can watch the video if that’s your thing…

Or you can follow the steps below:

  1. Log in to BIM 360 and select BIM 360 Account Admin or, if you’re already logged in, click the module selector, then Account Admin.


2. Click the Members tab.

3. Click the Add button, then Invite Account Admins.

4. Type in the email address of your new admin, then click Add.

5. Provide values for Default Company and Default Role. Access Level should automatically be set to Account Admin. Click Invite.

Now the person you’ve added will receive an email invitation. Their status will show as pending until they accept the invitation, at which point it will change to Active.

Congratulations! You’ve just given someone else the ability to take some work off your shoulders.
