Project download settings

Use the Download tab in the Project properties screen to schedule automated download of project files from the cloud to a folder on your computer or network. Each project is downloaded to its own folder in the selected download folder.

You can schedule periodic downloads at regular intervals during the day, or daily downloads. Select whether to download jobs and related files, project reference files, and/or system files.

This feature does not check for changes and so each period triggers a full download of the selected file types. As such it may not be suitable for particularly large projects or on narrow or metered bandwidth.

If you do not want to automate download of project files and prefer to download files as required, select Manual in the When field at the top of the Download tab.

To automate project downloads

  1. Use the When and Every fields at the top of the Download tab to configure how often the project will be downloaded.

    If you select Periodic, then select the download interval in minutes or hours.

    If you select Daily, then select the time each day that the project will be downloaded.

  2. Click Browse next to the Project location field and select the folder on your computer or network to download the project to. Each project is downloaded to its own folder in the selected folder.

  3. In the File selection group, select the types of files to download. You can select any of the following:

    • Jobs and related files

    • Project reference files

    • System files

    If you select System files, select whether to download the system files to the project folder or to a separate folder.

  4. Select the types of notifications to receive.
