There is currently only one option to send to one approver. This limits collaboration on the design team side and would result and great pushback from those teams. Typical workflows on the design team side could range from simple single approval with something like paint product data, to something far more complex like a generator where Architect would initially review, send to structural, electrical, and commissioning at the same time, then back tot he architect for finally approval and stamping. With current functionality those designers would have to take the documents and files out of Viewpoint system and manually collaborate via email and using seperate excel file to track ball in court which defeats the whole purpose. This is the number one piece of feedback we receive with all systems like this. If this can be solved, the software will be a large benefit. Without this, designers will complain and pushback likely resulting in scraping the use of the software entirely on the project. This will be needed before we could realistically use Viewpoint team submittals. Large GC's arent building coffee shops / gas stations, but large complex buildings that require many layers of review on submittals.

I just received a demo from our engineering team of this feature which will be released in a couple weeks. It is great and am looking forward to the feedback by the voters and subscribers once it is shipped and you're able to get your hands on it.
