The property library of Bimplus contains two property databases: the Bimplus database and the Team database.

Whereas the Bimplus database cannot be changed, the Team database can be changed. This means that you can add your own properties and property groups to the team database or edit existing entries.

Note: The team database of a new team is empty; the team administrator must fill it with data.

Topics on this page:



Creating new property groups

You can create a new property group only under an existing property group (or directly under the Team database entry). You cannot create another library element under a property.
