From the Success Desk

If you've been tuned into AVAIL for a bit, you've likely picked up that we agonize over keeping things simple.  We strive for fewer buttons, fewer steps, intuitive/flexible design, and consistent results.

Starting in June, we are applying that mindset towards our subscription plans and pricing.  We are consolidating plans and including more features that make content management and collaboration simpler.  Learn more below!

Also included this month:  Updated software versions, an important Azure SSO note, a new How to Harvest video, and a new blog from Randall!

Company Updates & Events


AVAIL Harvest 2.0

We’ve all been constrained to organizing and deploying non-Family assets such as Drafting Views, Sheets, and System Families in Revit Project Files (RVT).  Commonly known as Container Files or Container Libraries, these files have traditionally been relatively easy to manage but difficult for users to search, find, and consume the elements held within needed to complete their daily work.

With AVAIL Harvest 2.0 those constraints have been lifted.  Now every Revit element appears as an individual object in AVAIL which can be tagged, searched, and then dragged and dropped into an active Revit Project!
