Upload a Drawing

You can upload a PDF drawing to a drawing set in Viewpoint Team by going to Projects > Drawings > Drawings Sets.

Tip: If you want to create and upload a drawing set, see details on how to Create and Upload a Drawing Set.
Important: Make sure your PDF file name adheres to the following syntax so that it's organized appropriately on the Drawings page: <discipline key><sheet#><space, underscore, or dash with spaces><sheet name>.pdf

For example: the three files in the table below would all be recognized by Team and would all be organized under the "Architectural" discipline on the Drawings page.

File name Key + Sheet # Sheet Name Discipline

A1 Roof Details.pdf

A2_Roof Details.pdf

A3 - Roof Details.pdf




Roof Details Architectural
Note: Drawings uploaded as separated sheets do not need to fit a pre-defined naming convention. If your single-sheet file names do not match the pre-defined naming convention, the file will still be uploaded and you'll be able to manually correct its meta data before publishing your drawing set.
Tip: To access the list of keys for your project, click the settings icon , select Project Settings, and then click the Drawings tab.
