A window opens allowing you to send the project to PlanSwift
If this is the first time you have sent a project to PlanSwift, you need to download and install the PlanSwift Connect utility. ClickDownload Nownext to "PlanSwift® Connect" to download the PlanSwift Connect integration MSI file (PSConnect.msi)
When the download completes, run the file to install
You must enter the same log-in and password you use to log in to app.constructconnect.com to install the PlanSwift Connect utility properly
If you have not already installed PlanSwift, you'll need to do that, too. Click "Download Now" next to "PlanSwift®" to download the latest version of PlanSwift.
Once the installations are complete (or if you've already installed PlanSwift and PlanSwift Connect), return to the web page and click button that reads "I have PlanSwift, Send Project Now"
The first time you send a project to PlanSwift your browser will likely display a pop-up window warning you that the site is attempting to open "ApplicationLauncher.exe". You can select the "Always allow" checkbox so you do not get this message every time.
Additionally, each time you download a project from the platform, the Connect utility checks to see if there are any updates available. You will see an "Installing Latest Version..." loading bar before the project is imported into PlanSwift.
PlanSwift opens and the plans begin downloading. Depending on the size of the project you are importing this may take a few minutes to complete
When the download/import is finished, click on the Pages Tab - all selected Pages (we only selected one) are named and put into folders the same way they were in the Document Viewer on app.constructconnect.com.
Each time you use the "Open with..." option in Document Viewer, PlanSweft creates a <em>new</em> Project; it does not update the existing Project. This way, there is no risk of overwriting any of your existing work. You can use the files that get downloaded as Overlays in your original Project, or copy/paste takeoff and markups from the original to the new Project - whatever works better for you.
