It seems to me that Graphisoft has an enormous opportunity that should be easy to take advantage of. With BIM SAAS the next level is to turn it into a complete online cloud database like Dropbox. If BIMcloud could be accessed just like another drive on my computer the way dropbox sync works they would have me and my office completely and happily captured in their universe. As it is if I load project files and information on BIMCloud I have to download it to a local file to use it and reload it when I'm done.

If that next step is to big a leap there are simple improvements they could make
1. Add a PDF viewer. There is currently a Jpeg viewer PDF and word would be awesome
2. Add dates of latest update or loading. I look at a list of files and I don't know which is the latest or oldest
3. DO NOT require an additional license to access the manager. It's like I have a license but I have to have a license to manage my license. ABSURD
4. Allow file sharing with outside non-licensed users. Without this collaboration is discouraged and therefore the whole point missed. This also helps potential users like engineers to get a peek of how awesome Graphisoft is and is a great marketing tool.
5. Drag and drop files. I feel like I'm in the stone age having to "download" and "upload" files

In other words Graphisoft could create a whole office solution and put themselves miles ahead of the competition.

I really like your suggestions.
3. Finding this I was stunned myself
My biggest whish would be, to have a Fileserver "buildin" so no link will ever get coldlinked or missing in action.
