Pin to Plan

The pin to plan feature has been improved and upgraded with this release. Now you can add a pin to a drawing on the online version of iTWO cx. Not only that we now also support adding any form type as a pin to a drawing. The sections below will give you an overview of how to set up and add pins to drawings.


Configuration of the pin to plan feature is based on which plans or drawings you wish to add Pins to.

The two options available are

  • Allowing pins on any plan (on the publication space). 

This option will allow the user to add a pin to any plan on the publication space as long as they have access to it and to mark it up

  • Allow pins on any specific plans 

When this option is set you will need to add the plans you wish to use for adding pins.
