Buzzsaw Sync with Subfolder Sync and Scheduled Sync Now Available


A new version of Buzzsaw Sync is available to you and all members of your Buzzsaw site(s).    Buzzsaw Sync, originally released in April 2010, has fundamentally changed and simplified how our customers can manage and exchange multi-discipline models and project documents across distributed teams and external partners.  With Buzzsaw Sync, users can:

  • Automatically synchronize  files from the desktop to the Buzzsaw cloud without interrupting users’ workflow
  • Easily centralize multi-discipline models for importing into Autodesk Navisworks
  • Leverage Buzzsaw permissions to securely synchronize, share and access information

Top three customer-requested Sync features available now


The new version of Buzzsaw Sync delivers the highest-priority features requested by our customers, including:

  • Sync Subfolders:  Buzzsaw Sync now lets you create a Sync folder with subfolders in one easy step and keep the entire folder tree synchronized automatically.  
  • Scheduled Sync:   Buzzsaw Sync now provides three ways to control the timing and frequency of Sync:  you can Sync continuously, Sync at a scheduled time, or Sync only when you initiate “Sync Now.”  This level of flexibility supports multiple use cases and the unique process needs of our customers.
  • Full Permission Support:  Buzzsaw Sync now expands beyond Admin and Edit users to allow all users at all permission levels to automatically sync files based on their access privileges.  

 Consolidate Important Project Emails in Buzzsaw


In addition to the new Sync features, Buzzsaw now provides a simple way to include critical emails in the full project documentation set.  Users can simply drag and drop any Outlook email message to a Buzzsaw Sync folder (or directly onto a Buzzsaw folder in the desktop application) to file project-related emails with other project designs and documentation on Buzzsaw.  The Buzzsaw full-content search feature now supports Outlook MSG files, so users can find all project information, including email, quickly and easily.
