With the Bluebeam Revu 21 release, you now have access to the Bluebeam Subscription Management Portal, an online administrative tool available for active subscriptions. From here, Org Admins can allocate Bluebeam subscription seats, add or remove End Users, manage other Org Admins, and more.
Bluebeam Plans allow you to access Revu 21, Studio, and Bluebeam Cloud on up to three devices using a single login.
But first, Org Admins must assign a Bluebeam Subscription Plan to themselves if they want to log into Revu 21 or Bluebeam Cloud.
Here are some tips to manage your Bluebeam Subscription within your organization from adding, deleting, or modifying user subscription access.
With the Bluebeam Subscription Management Portal, you can manage users and their subscription access (i.e., product tier). To get started:
Within Users & Product Tier Management, you can add new users to your account individually. To do this:
The new user will appear under User Overview with a Pending status until their account has been activated.
Org Admins can also add a batch of users to their accounts. To do this:
The new users will appear under User Overview with a Pending status until their accounts have been activated.
After bulk-adding users, you’ll need to assign them subscription access. To do this for multiple users at a time:
Within Users & Product Tier Management, you can also find particular account users and/or filter them by categories. To do this:
You can also search by keyword if looking for a particular account user and/or email:
Your search results will display under User Overview.
You can also sort columns by values by selecting the arrow that appears when you hover your cursor over a column heading:
From the Users & Product Tier Management page, you can also edit information for existing account users. To do this, follow these steps:
The updated information will appear under the User Overview list.
When you need to change subscription access for a specific account user, select the menu icon next to their Status and:
Select a new product tier with available seats and click Save Changes.
When adding new subscription users, invitations are sent out via email for accounts to be created and activated. However, email invitations will expire after the date listed in the Invitation Expiry Date column under User Overview. To resend an invitation, click the menu icon next to Status and select:
Select the checkbox next to Welcome Email and click Resend. A new invitation will be sent to the user’s email, and the expiration date will automatically update.
When you need to deactivate a user, do the following:
Deactivated users will still be listed under User Overview. However, their Status will change to Inactive.
If you need to reactivate an inactive user:

Bluebeam is moving Revu from a licensing and maintenance model to a subscription model. They now offer three Bluebeam Plans: Basics, Core, and Complete with functionality on desktop, web, and iOS mobile to boost your productivity.
With the introduction of Bluebeam subscription products, they have a new customer self-upgrading tool and a change in their Partner of Record process. Here’s information about your Bluebeam maintenance upgrade scenarios and the new processes.
Scenario 1: Upgrade to Subscription from Maintenance
If you want to upgrade your maintenance, you can do so via the Self-Upgrader Tool. This is an improved version of the old perpetual site that will move the customer to Revu 21.
Scenario 2: Upgrade to Subscription at the Time of Renewal
If you want to upgrade at the time of renewal, you should first renew your maintenance using the perpetual process and second, use the Self-Upgrader Tool to upgrade to Subscription (see Scenario 1).
Scenario 3: Convert an Open License (OL) to a Subscription
While Bluebeam no longer offers a concurrent user model, their new simplified self-serve licensing system allows you to effortlessly switch devices using your Bluebeam ID (BBID).
With a named-user license, you can log into Bluebeam Revu 21 and Bluebeam Cloud on up to three devices simultaneously.
To add new team members to your account, contact the Microsol Resources’ Bluebeam Support Team, we would need your Bluebeam ID (BBID), and discuss the desired number of subscriptions. After deciding on the additional seats, you can distribute them to individual users through the Bluebeam Subscription Management Portal.
If you have additional questions about these various scenarios or need help upgrading your Bluebeam licenses, feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bluebeam gives you the smart tools you need to keep your team in sync and get the job done right—anytime, anywhere.
Bluebeam Revu makes it easy to securely access your work anywhere. You can log into any desktop with Revu installed and access your project files, or send your Tool Chest to Bluebeam Cloud for markups on the go.
Important: You’ll need your Revu serial number and product key to unlock the software. If you’re a license owner with active Maintenance, you can upgrade to get your Revu 21 serial number and product key here.
