Include Co-Located Files in Document Control Transmittals

When issuing record documents, you are sometimes required to issue additional file types (i.e., DWGs) along with your contract documents. You can configure Project Center to automatically include co-located files with the same name in your Document Control transmittals.

If you sync your record document revisions from Revit via Newforma Project Information Link, you can publish sheets to DWG at the same time you publish sheets to PDF. Please see Publish Sheets to DWG from Revit for details.

In order for Project Center to automatically include co-located files in Document Control transmittals, you must enable the option for the project. See below for details.


Co-located files must meet the following conditions to be included in a transmittal:

        Be listed in the Associated Files tab in the transmittal, OR

        Have the same file name as a file in the transmittal Associated Files tab, AND

        Be in the same folder, or one folder below, the file in the transmittal Associated Files tab with which it shares its name
