Build Mizzou User's Guide

Table of Contents

Overview

Build Mizzou is our online location for storing, reviewing, and monitoring documentation essential to this project, such as:

new or existing drawings,
review documents,
meeting minutes, and
submittals - shop drawings.

Project Index is: https://buildmizzou.missouri.edu/

Obtaining Access

Access is granted based on project need. In order to access a project the user needs a User ID (PawPrint) and password. For external users who have accessed the site in past the information remains the same. First-time this information will be provided to them.

Passwords may be reset at: https://webapps.missouri.edu/revamp/wizards/passwordManager/passwordManager.jsp.

Logging into Build Mizzou

To reduce the number of login pop-ups which occur, Internet Explorer® users can download this file (when logged into the computer as yourself) and run it once. If there are multiple users on a computer, each user will need to be logged in as themselves and follow these steps.

Your username should be entered in the form: domain\username. The default domain is UMC-USERS, but if you work on campus and use another domain name, please enter that domain instead. For example, John Smith would most likely login with "UMC-USERS\smithj".

Indexes allow us to navigate between projects. They are visible when you press the Browse tab. The projects are listed by project number in numeric order. To enter the site, click on the project manager's name.

Project Navigation

Project Sites

The following is a representation of the standard site lay-out:

Project_Site

User actions are driven from the ribbon or from the drop-down menu. If library tools aren't visible in the ribbon, click on the project number in the Site Content menu on the left. To display the drop-down menu hover over the folder or file name.

We suggest clicking on the " > " beside the project number in the "Site Content" menu on the left to expanding the menu and navigate to the folder (files) you want to access.

If something on the ribbon is grey (not active), switch your browser to Internet Explorer (32 bit.)

Opening a File

To open a file, click or double-click the file name.

Read dialogue box

The file will open in your web browser window or automatically in Excel ® or Word ® or another associated document.

Folder

Click the "OK" button.

Naming Conventions

In order to maintain organization of the site, all files must follow the following naming conventions.

Plans (PDF and DWG files should have identical names excluding, of course, the extension):
001_G001-Cover_Sheet.xxx
002_G002-Drawing_Index.xxx
086_M501-Whatever_This_Sheet_Is_Called.xxx

The first three characters refer to the actual sheet location within the set.  For instance, the first example is the cover sheet, which is the very top sheet in the set.  The third example refers to a mechanical sheet, which is the 86th sheet in the set.

The next few characters show the label of the sheet, while the rest of the filename spells out the actual title of the sheet. Please note underscores are used instead of spaces.  Also, the hyphen comes after the sheetnumber_sheetlabel portion of the filename.

Specs (PDF and DOC files should have identical names excluding, of course, the extension):
04810-Unit_Masonry_Assemblies.xxx
06105-Miscellaneous_Carpentry.xxx

The specs concept is the same as the drawings.  Basically, just the full spec section number (please leave leading zeros), followed by a hyphen and the name of the spec section.  Again, there are no spaces.

Shop Drawings:
020700_01-Block_Work.pdf
230910_01-Duct_Accessories.pdf
260124_02-Medium_Voltage_Cable.pdf

The first six digits refer to the section in the specifications where this product appears. The spec section is followed by an underscore and two digits referring to how many times this shop drawing has been submitted. This information is followed by a hyphen and the name of the product, using underscores instead of spaces.

Note: These are generic naming conventions. For more detailed instruction or questions, please contact the Project Manager or Construction Manager.

File Types and URL Length

The preferred file type is PDF. To avoid any compatibility issues with editing Excel® or Word® files, please save these documents as 97-2003 type.

File Name and URL Length

Because this is a web-based service, file names should be short and descriptive; URL length should be kept to a minimum.

Microsoft TechNet & Stepping Stones blog recommend these character counts for file names and URLs:

Turning on an Alert to an Entire Site (Library)

The alert for the entire library is driven by the ribbon. Click on the word Library under Library Tools and "Alert Me" => "Set alert on this library."

 
Choose your preferences as desired. I recommend changing your Alert Title a descriptive name. Click the "OK" button. Occasionally, these messages are filtered into the spam or junk folders. Repeat these steps to turn on an alert for each library.

Turning on an Alert to One or More Folders

The alerts for a folder are driven by the drop down menu. Navigate to see the folder, hover beside it to display the drop-down menu and select Alert Me.

 
Choose your preferences as desired. I recommend changing your Alert Title a descriptive name. Click the "OK" button. Occasionally, these messages are filtered into the spam or junk folders. Repeat these steps to turn on an alert for each folder.

E–mail a Link

Since documents are being added or changed, it is more reliable to e–mail a link to the document than it is to send a particular versions of the same file. Clicking the link in the e-mail message will open the document on the server.

Click on the "Construction" or "Design" heading to enter the folder and navigate to the location where the file is stored.

Right-click on the file name and select ""Copy Shortcut". This will save the web address to your computer.

Right click with your mouse in the body of the e-mail (task, appointment, or another file) and select "Paste".
