Working with Releases

What is a Release?

Releases are used to send versions of files privately to users who are part of a project. You can create and manage Releases in Trimble Connect for Browser on the Releases page.

Releases have two states, Draft and Sent. If a Release is in the Draft state, it can still be edited. After a Release has been sent, it will be locked and not editable.

All the Releases you created or that have been shared with you will be listed in the Releases page ing the Browser application.

Known Limitations

  • Editing a Sent Release is not supported

  • Deleting a Sent Release is not supported

  • Releases do not support Approval workflows

  • Releases can only be seen on the Web Application

Sorting Releases

You can sort Views in ascending or descending order by Name, Status, Due Date or Last Modified Date

To sort the Releases listing

  1. Open your project in Trimble Connect for Browser.

  2. Navigate to the Releases page.
