As of April 9, 2018, Autodesk will no longer offer new subscriptions to BIM 360 Team. BIM 360 Team subscribers will have access to the new BIM 360 platform. The BIM 360 Team end-of-life activities also apply to A360 Team users.
With the launch of the unified Autodesk Construction Cloud portfolio – Autodesk products built for architecture, engineering, and construction lifecycle collaboration – is taking the next step in the end-of-life process for BIM 360 Team.
In this article, you can learn more about the impact on your account and the next steps you can consider for copying your data. The information and processes in this article will also help you take advantage of new data and document management functionality as it is released.
Consider Moving to Autodesk Docs
Autodesk Docs is cloud collaboration software that supports controlled data and document management from design through construction. Autodesk Docs offers similar functionality to BIM 360 Team but with greater file- and folder-based access and permission controls and unlimited storage. To learn more about Autodesk Docs, click here.
BIM 360 Team products will be available until Autodesk completes the end-of-life process, but we encourage you to begin the file transfer process as soon as possible. It’s also helpful to keep in mind the overall timeline as detailed here.
If you have a subscription to any of the following product offerings, you already have access to Autodesk Docs.
You can access Autodesk Docs through the Autodesk Account portal. If you have issues accessing Autodesk Docs from the Autodesk Account portal, contact your contract manager or account administrator.
You can copy your data from BIM 360 Team or A360 Team to Autodesk Docs. You can also download your data to your local machine.
If you have a subscription to Autodesk Docs and you do not use AutoCAD Plant 3D, you can use the Autodesk Replication Tool to download your BIM 360 Team files to your local machine or copy files into an Autodesk Docs project. To request access to Autodesk Replication Tool, please complete the sign-up form.
If you don’t have a subscription to Autodesk Docs, you can get a separate subscription. You also have the option to download any BIM 360 Team or A360 Team files to your local machine.

If you have a mix of products with single- and multi-user access or purchased online and from Microsol Resources, you might manage your users in classic user management as well as new user management. When you manage users in both places, it’s important to understand the different admin roles and responsibilities.
If you see By User, By Product, and Classic User Management in the left navigation, your account has both views.
Each view has different administrative roles:
The two user management views are independent of one another.
The following table compares the different administrative roles and their responsibilities.
|By default, the contract manager (or owner), is also assigned as the primary admin.
Primary admin rights:
|Secondary admins assist with user management.
Secondary admin rights:
|SSO admins assist with managing and configuring SSO.
SSO admin rights:
|The person who purchases the product is the contract manager (owner), however, you can reassign the role later.
Contract manager rights:
|The contract manager assigns a software coordinator to assist with managing users and product updates.
Software coordinator rights:
Groups allow you to organize and assign products to multiple people at one time.
Instead of assigning your users to products one by one, you can organize them into groups and manage them by role such that each group is assigned access to the same products.
For example, if you name a group of Architects you can assign AutoCAD and Revit to the group. A group of civil engineers could be assigned Civil 3D and Navisworks Manage.
Note: Groups are not supported in classic user management.
Groups are not the same as teams. Every organization has at least one team. Multiple teams help larger organizations manage subscription contracts and data. Groups are not shared between different teams. If you have a group with the same name in different teams, the groups are managed separately.
After creating a group, you can add users and assign products.
Only existing users can be added to a group. However, when inviting new users, you can assign existing groups. See Add users in Autodesk Account.
You can assign groups to guest users in user details.
When assigning products to a group, you must have enough seats available for all the members of the group.
If a group member was individually assigned to a product, an extra seat is not assigned to the group. Only one seat is consumed per user.
Users assigned to products individually continue to have access. Group management does not affect individual product assignments.
If your team is configured for single sign-on (SSO), you can sync your organization’s directory with groups in your Autodesk Account.
Instead of adding users to a group manually, a synced group is automatic. To set up SSO and directory sync, see the enterprise user management configuration guide.
Check synced groups status
Following the initial setup, secondary admins can assign products to synced groups.
