Have you ever needed to transfer ownership of your Bluebeam Studio Sessions or Projects? Maybe you’re moving on to a new project team, or simply want to delegate control of a Session or Project to one of your colleagues.
We’ll cover the actual steps for doing so in the following sections, but in general, you can reassign the ownership of a Studio Session by going to the Bluebeam Studio Portal. The process for Studio Projects is a bit different in that you’ll need to go into the Studio Project Settings and grant Full Control to a delegate.
Reassigning Session Ownership
To begin reassigning ownership of a Studio Session, use your Bluebeam Studio account to log in to the Bluebeam Studio Portal and click My Sessions on the left side of the page.
When the list of Sessions appears, click the one that you want to reassign and then click Reassign Ownership.
This is where you’ll complete the ownership change by entering the email address of the new owner and clicking Apply. At this point you’ll no longer be the owner or have any control over the Session.
Note: The email address you enter must match what the new owner uses when logging in to their Bluebeam Studio account.
The new owner must have a Studio account before you can enter the email address. If they don’t already have one, please refer to our FAQ about creating a Studio account in Bluebeam Revu.
Granting Full Control of Studio Projects
Studio Projects can’t be re-assigned in the same way that Sessions can, so you’ll need to grant Full Control to a delegate. For this process to work, the new person must already have a Bluebeam Studio account, and logged in to the Project at least once.
Note: They don’t have to be currently logged in to the Project while you’re granting Full Control.
If they don’t already have a Studio account, please refer them to our FAQ about creating a Studio account in Bluebeam Revu.
- Once they’ve done that, you can log in to the Project and click Project Settings , and then click the Permissions
- Click the Plus sign on the left side of the dialog box, select the desired user from the list in the Add Users/Groups dialog box, and click OK.
- Now that you’re back at the Permissions tab in the Project Settings dialog box, select the user’s email address from the User/Groups list on the left, and Full Control under Applied/Permissions on the right, and then click the associated dropdown menu and choose Allow.
- Click Apply and OK to close the Project Settings dialog box.
The user now has complete control over the User Access, Permissions and Folder Permissions tabs.
Note: Because the Host still owns the Project and all Groups they’ve created, users with Full Control cannot block or remove the Host from the Project, or edit their Groups (add or remove users).
