What's New in VFP 2021-02 April 2021

The second release of Viewpoint For Projects™ in 2021 features the addition of ISO 19650 Classification fields to your work items and continued authentication framework for the migration to Viewpoint ID.

A list of Bug Fixes is also available.

Web Enhancements

  • New Classification Field - To demonstrate compliance to your auditors and potential clients, you can now capture classification data in a dedicated new field in VFP. The upcoming beta release allows you to capture Classification data (Uniclass 2021) to demonstrate ISO19650 compliance. For more information on enabling the classification field in your container, see Enable Classification Field (Beta).
  • 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 later in 2021. Follow the simple prompt at login to change your username to a valid email address, and set a new password of sufficient complexity. For more information, see here.
