Topics Listing

About the Topics List Page

Use Topics to assign, track and resolve issues within a project. Topics can be assigned to a user or a group with a due date when the Topic needs to be resolved.

Topics are a helpful tool to assign, track and resolve issues with a model.  Authoring tools such as Tekla Structures and Revit can export BCFs for issue and task management which can then be imported to Trimble Connect as a Topic. The Topic can then be assigned and prioritized. 

Trimble Connect supports the BCF 3.0 format format.

You can view all the Topics in the project, that you have created or that has been assigned to you on the Topics page.

Sorting Topics

Use the Sort By option to sort the Topics listing based on selected criteria. 

The default sorting order is by Creation date.
