The OpenAsset Employee Module is a powerful tool that enables you to connect employees to your firm’s projects and files. By linking employee information such as project roles and bios with your OpenAsset projects, you are able to use OpenAsset as an engine for generating marketing documents.
There are three key ways in which the Employee Module can deliver value to your firm:
- Quality and consistency. Whoever in your firm produces a resume, you can be confident that the information is up-to-date, the layout is perfect, and the branding is consistent every time a document is generated.
- Efficiency through templates. Save time by automating the creation of resume documents. Push your data from OpenAsset, or an ERP such as Deltek, directly into InDesign or Word documents.
- Win new business. We have developed tools to help you align the resumes you are creating for the particular bid you are working on. Easily select employees and customise their resumes without editing files.
On Wednesday 27th October at 11am EST we will be hosting a live webinar exploring the Employee Module, and sharing best-practices for ensuring your system is well implemented and widely used across your firm. We are fortunate to be joined by guests from architecture firms CannonDesign and WilkinsonEyre, who will share insights into their implementations and discuss how the Employee Module has helped to drive business outcomes for their firms. OpenAsset Customer Success Manager, Alex Bargus, will also recap on recent developments and improvements to the Employee Module.
We understand that it can be challenging and time-consuming to access construction site images from the office. If you use site images in your case studies, marketing campaigns or internal presentations our new Procore Connector can help.
Our connector enables access to images directly in Procore. Within OpenAsset, you can browse images in Procore, select what you need and load directly into your OpenAsset Projects. Keywords and metadata can be applied to your images in the usual way. From there, the images are searchable and ready for use by your team.
If you filter your Files by a single Project, Album or Employee, you’ll see a button to 'Select all Files' at the top of the screen. You may find this useful if you:
OpenAsset is built to help you find images fast, and our search functionality is central to this workflow. In May of this year, we launched a major update to the main file search results page, bringing the user interface up to date and in line with other areas of the product. This was the first phase in our roadmap to revamp search, and while the functionality remains largely the same, we have made some improvements to how you find, preview, and use images from the search results page.
In this webinar, we recap on the recent updates to OpenAsset search, and place these updates in the context of our wider product strategy. Join Director of Onboarding and Support, George Bains, and VP of Product, Piers Lowe, as we review the key features of the search results page and our future roadmap for OpenAsset search.
Our agenda for this webinar:
Here’s a reminder of how to get the latest version of our InDesign plugin that is compatible from InDesign CC 2018 through to the latest version InDesign CC 2021.
We always host the latest plugin installers from this page on our help site.
The plugin has an auto-update feature, so when new versions become available, you will be notified that you can update from within InDesign.
If you happen to have a very old version of the plugin installed, you many need to uninstall it first. You can find instructions on how to do this here.
As well as dragging individual files to InDesign you are able to select several files that you would like to use, then transfer your entire Selection to InDesign by dragging the 'Drag and Drop' button in the action bar.
When dragging, you might find it easier to reduce the width of the browser window. If you do this, the action bar buttons will no longer be visible but the 'Drag and Drop' button turns into a yellow circle.
When you have dragged multiple images to InDesign, the images will be loaded onto your cursor in the same order that they are in your Selection. From there you can place them into your document.
Before you place an image you are then able to rotate through the images on your cursor using the arrow keys on your keyboard.
