Introducing Bricsys 24/7

To understand how Bricsys 24/7 works you have to know:

  • There are 2 types of users
  • Users can have different roles
  • Every role has its own access rights
  • There are folders and objects
  • There are Enterprise customers and Project customers

Bricsys 24/7 requires a recent browser: Chrome, Firefox, Safari 7 or higher, Internet Explorer 9 (limited functionality) or higher.

User Types

The main administrator

The main administrator is created by Bricsys 24/7 and is unique per company. He/she is the first member of the project and is also a member of the administrator role (See Roles and Access-rights > Administrator Role).

Standard user

A standard user is a member of one or more roles. Standard users can be member of several roles in the same project.

Roles and access rights

AdminAdministrator role

The project administrator is a member of the administrator role. He provides the project details, sets up the folder structure, defines users, roles and access rights and generally manages the day-to-day operations of the project platform. An administrator can invite an unlimited number of users.

The main admin can invite one or more people to the administrator role. Now the administrator(s) can help the main admin to set up and manage the project.


A member of the administrator role can create different roles (with different access rights) and add users to these roles.

Folder AccessAccess Rights

When a user is a member of a role he/she gets the access rights of this role in the project. In case of a membership of several roles, the rights of the user are the sum of the rights of these roles. You can only see or do things according to the rights of the roles you are a member of.

Folders / Objects


A project consists of a tree structure with different folders. Only the folders you have access to, according to the rights of the roles you are a member of, are visible in the folder structure. There are 9 folder types and they all have their own functionality (See Structure App).


A folder consists of objects. These objects are the “files” of the folder. Each folder type has its own objects (See Structure App).

Enterprise customer / Project customer

Project Customer

The company decided to have one project only. The main administrator cannot create another project.

Enterprise Customer

An enterprise customer is a company which can create multiple projects. Only the main administrator of this company has the rights to create new projects.



When you log in on Bricsys 24/7, and you have access to one project only, you immediately enter this project. If you have access to multiple projects you will see the project list (See Project List).

The project administrator sends you your login name and password.
