FAQ

What is Studio Prime?

Studio Prime is a cloud-based collaboration solution for companies that want all the functionality of Bluebeam Studio Projects and Sessions with additional administrative controls and user management. Administrators can access Studio activity reports through the Studio Prime Portal. Prime also provides access to the Bluebeam Studio API for external application integrations.

Do I need to own a seat of Bluebeam Revu to use Studio Prime?

Administrators do not need to own a seat of Bluebeam Revu or Vu to manage a Studio Prime account. They will have access to the online Studio Prime Portal, where they can control user access and pull reports on user activity.

Members and Collaborators need access to a seat of Bluebeam Revu or Vu to participate in Studio Projects and Sessions managed within the Studio Prime account.

What are the different types of users within Studio Prime?

There are two types of users within Studio Prime: Members and Collaborators.


Members

Members are invited to join the Studio Prime account by an Administrator to become managed users. Members could be employees, joint venture partners, or anyone who needs to become a managed user. Administrators have the ability to manage Members' Studio accounts and associated Projects and Sessions. There are three different Member roles within Studio Prime:

Owner

This role is assigned to the user who sets up a Studio Prime account.


Administrator

This administrative role can be assigned to any Member by an Owner or a fellow Administrator. Administrators can access the administrative Studio Prime Portal to pull reports on user activity in managed Projects and Sessions.

Member (Basic)

The basic role assigned to a user invited to join a Studio Prime account. Prime Members give Administrators the ability to manage their Studio account and corresponding Projects and Sessions. This role does not have any administrative capabilities.

Collaborators

Collaborators are external users that Members invite to attend managed Projects and Sessions. Collaborators could be superintendents, subcontractors, or anyone who needs access to a Studio Project or Session within the Studio Prime account. Collaborators who are invited to join a Studio Prime account maintain control over their personal Studio account. Administrators can control Collaborators' access to Members' managed Projects and Sessions.

What is the difference between a Member and a Collaborator?

When invited into the Studio Prime account, Members give Administrators the ability to manage their Studio account and associated Projects and Sessions. Collaborators, on the other hand, maintain control over their personal Studio account when joining or leaving a Project or Session within the Prime account.

How does an Administrator access the Studio Prime Portal to manage users and generate reports?

Administrators can access their Studio Prime account through the online Studio Prime Portal at studio.bluebeam.com.

What is the Bluebeam Studio API?

The Bluebeam Studio API lets users create applications to manage their Studio Projects and Sessions. These applications can
 leverage Bluebeam Studio in a number of ways, including:

  • Studio Projects and Sessions: add and create.

  • Project folders: add or delete Project folders and manage folder permissions.

  • Studio files: add, update, download and delete Project and Session files, and restore file revisions.

  • Studio users: invite or add users to Projects and Sessions, and manage user permissions.

  • Studio permissions: manage Project and Session permissions.

  • Session activity: get a report on all Session activity and create chat messages in a Session.
