Add a new BIM 360 connection

Create a new BIM 360 connection on the GoFormz web app.

Updated this week

Use the GoFormz-BIM 360 connection to upload submitted PDFs to your existing BIM 360 account.

Before you begin, verify that you have access to an existing BIM 360 account. The BIM 360 account used for this connection will display as the user who completes any actions using this connection.

You'll need to re-authenticate this connection each time you change your BIM 360 account password.

πŸ—’οΈ Note: If you add your connection using Safari, you may need to allow pop-ups from GoFormz to successfully add your connection.

Navigate to the Workflows tab in the GoFormz web app where you'll access the Workflow Dashboard. Next, follow the steps below to add your new connection.

  1. Click the Manage Connected Apps card.
