BuildingConnected helps keep your project files organized by allowing you to upload them directly into a project. This makes it easy for subcontractors to see project details and access the necessary files to submit their bid in one centralized location.
This article shows you how to upload project files. Project files are accessible to all of your bidders so these should be any files that everyone should have in order to submit a bid. These are different than Bid Package Files that are specific to trades. That is the ideal location for reports that may only affect certain trades. Learn how to upload bid package files here or see Project and Bid Package Files FAQs.
