to keep sharing things we are working on here throughout the year rather than just leading up to a major version launch, we shall see.


+1 for this.. especially for BIM/CAD Managers, having to constantly keep tabs on Version changes for Workflows/Templates/etc every year, gets really taxing.. at least we'll have 'some' insight on upcoming changes. Already with the current 2018 teaser Tuesdays, I'm gearing up for the workflow change with multiple views (revising save views in the templates,etc).


For the cloud services:

- How much storage is available for the cloud service?

- is OneDrive on the roadmap? OneDrive comes with 1Tb storage with MS Office 2016.

It's like a list of everything that went wrong with Nomad/CloudServices when I tried to set the boss up with a copy of his house project to take on holidays just two weeks ago. ;-)


Also agree with above are MS OneDrive and Apple iCloud on the cards, as both are more small business friendly. Also Aconex needs to be in the roadmap.
