Bulk Add Autodesk Users in Autodesk Account

Accessing Autodesk subscription with single-user access types requires that a user be added and assigned to their subscription(s) within Autodesk Account interface by an administrator(s).  While it only takes a moment to assign and/or reassign an Autodesk user or two; when there are multiple users that need to be assigned; the process becomes more tedious.  In order to speed up this process, we have created an Excel sheet to help you bulk-add your named users. Note this process works in both Autodesk Account Classic and New View’s. To download our Autodesk User Bulk Add Excel sheet, click here.

Filling out the sheet

Simply fill out “First Name” and “Last Name” of named users in the appropriate columns. If you have a list of email addresses, please feel free to copy-paste them into column C in the excel. If you are manually typing these addresses, we have created a system where all you need to type is the beginning of the user’s email address, and the rest will populate automatically (given that all your users have the same email alias). All you have to do is insert the company’s email alias in cell B4 (without “@”), and the email will automatically generate. If you have a combination of both scenarios above, not to worry! The logic below is able to handle both scenarios. See examples noted in the Excel.

There is NO NEED to populate column D, this should automatically generate the naming convention based on the information you inputted into columns A-C.

Bulk Add Autodesk Users

Once you are finished inputting the names and emails of your named Autodesk users, go ahead and copy the text in the bottom of column D (highlighted in grey), and paste in Autodesk Account.

Microsol Resources presents at GBCA Construction Technology Expo 2019

Microsol Resources’ BIM specialist, Nick Marchek, presented at the GBCA’s Construction Technology Expo held in the Philadelphia Navy Yard on October 29, 2019. During this presentation, Nick demonstrated how Autodesk BIM 360 can empower a project team to collaborate; those in the field to better anticipate and act, and those in the back office to optimize and manage all aspects of construction performance.

Throughout the Construction Technology Expo presentation, attendees learnt how to:

  • Accelerate design decision making by simultaneously working on a single cloud Revit file.
  • Track the design process with version history, commenting, and model comparison.
  • Track your contract administration, create issues, and requests for information.
  • Open, view and markup drawings privately or for the team; all from your smartphone.
