To make it easier than ever to take your bid board online, our in-house experts have created a comprehensive Help Center to answer all of your top BuildingConnected and Bid Board Pro questions. Here are our five most popular Help Center articles. They’ll teach you everything you need to know to manage your bid board and daily workload — and take advantage of the new preconstruction process.
1. Signing up for BuildingConnected
Ready to get started with BuildingConnected? There are three ways you can join: by receiving an invitation from a general contractor, by receiving an invitation from a colleague with an existing account, or by receiving an invitation from our Support team. Determine what the best option is for you.
2. How to update your work performed
When a general contractor uses BuildingConnected’s network, they can indicate what kind of work a subcontractor performs. If an incorrect scope is added as a result, subcontractors can update this information within their profile. Learn how to make corrections to your “Work Performed” settings.
3. Online training: Bid Board Pro

Stephanie Ho, BuidingConnected’s Vice President of Customer Success, provides insight into BuildingConnected’s network, challenges facing subcontractors, and key features of Bid Board Pro that will help you work smarter — not harder — starting today.
