Log in to your Autodesk account. Under the management tab and All Products, locate theBIM 360Team/Collaboration for Revit contract. b. Click Access Now located at the far right. Note: The contract manager is automatically assigned a license but can later reassign that license to another user. This is required, in-order to be able to set up the software. c. Assign the Collaboration for Revit to a Team Hub. If not available from drop down, enter hub URL and assign contract. d. Once assigned, details will show up on the Team Hub dashboard.
