What's New in VFP 2020-07 - December 2020

The seventh release of Viewpoint For Projects™ in 2020 delivers further authentication framework for future migration to Viewpoint ID.

A list of Bug Fixes is also available.

Web Enhancements

  • ViewpointID - Major framework has been established in previous releases to support the shift to Viewpoint ID. Viewpoint ID provides a centralised authentication service and consolidates all accounts under the same email address.

    This future migration represents a giant step towards platform integration across the Viewpoint and Trimble product ecosystem.We’re now asking you to make your account compliant in readiness for this move, which will take place during H1 in 2021. Follow the simple prompt at login to validate and link your account(s) to an email address, and set a new password of sufficient complexity. For more information, see here.

  • File Bundling- File bundling has been implemented to create and serve .zip files when downloading multiple documents.
