Managing Your Bluebeam Studio Projects + Sessions
With the release of Revu® 20 earlier this year there was an emphasis on the collaboration capabilities within Studio®. Revu 20 now allows project owners or admins the ability to manage Studio Projects and Sessions – making it easier than ever for your team to instantly collaborate anytime, anywhere.
With this version we also have an updated user interface in Studio enabling better user access. Once logged in, you have the ability to create and manage Project/Session users.
