Upload Electronic Files
Many times during the review process you will be uploading drawing and document files. There are a few ways to upload your files.
Example 1: When in your Task List tab, you can select the permit number under the Project column heading.
Example 2: Once you accept your task, you can upload your drawings and documents to the appropriate folder.
Example 3: When under your Projects Tab, select the permit number under the column heading.
Depending on the type of project you’re submit for (Planning, Engineering, or Building), the folders you see will be different. These folders may or may not be visible depending on the stage of your ProjectDox submittal and review.
For Building and Public Works Engineering: Upload your electronic application files to the “Drawings” and “Documents” folders.
For Planning: Upload your electronic application files to the “Prescreen Review – Drawings” and “Prescreen Review – Documents” folders during the initial upload.
Be sure to use the file naming standards when saving your files for uploading. Please visit our File Naming Standards page for more information.
