What is Bluebeam Cloud?

Are there different permission levels for users in a project?

Yes. There are three permission levels in Bluebeam Cloud: Admin, Member, and Viewer. A user’s permission level is assigned when they’re invited to a project and defines what that user can do within the project.

Certain permission levels are only available according to subscription plan. Click here to learn more about the Bluebeam Cloud features available for each subscription plan.
Is there a limit to the number of users who can be invited to a project?

There’s no limit to the number of invited users.

Can ownership of a project be transferred?

You can add multiple Admins to a project, but whoever created the project remains the Owner of it.

How do I upload my drawings to Bluebeam Cloud?

You can upload any PDF drawing to Bluebeam Cloud from a local device, or import PDFs through one of our integrations. Please note, this capability is only supported on the web app at this time.

How do I share access to my drawings in Bluebeam Cloud?

With Admin permissions, you can invite users as Viewers (limited functionality), Members (able to create punch items, etc.), or fellow Admins (full functionality).

To invite a new user, select Settings in the left sidebar on your project dashboard. Go to Users > Invite and enter the email of the invitee. In addition to choosing the new user’s permission, you may also assign them to a team or multiple teams.

Basics and Read-only accounts have Viewer permissions by default.
Can I access Bluebeam Cloud on mobile?

Does Bluebeam Cloud connect to Bluebeam Studio?

A project Admin can share folders and files from a Studio Project directly to Bluebeam Cloud. Studio Sessions are available when you’ve created a Session in Revu or when you’ve been invited to a Session.

Can I synchronize files in Bluebeam Cloud from a Studio Project?

There is no automatic sync between Bluebeam Cloud and Studio Projects. However, you can manually import your Studio PDFs in the Drawings tab.

Which Revu features have interoperability with Bluebeam Cloud?

To ensure all your markups display correctly, you should flatten your PDF in Revu before uploading the drawing to Bluebeam Cloud.

The PDF will load unless it requires a password to access it.
