Altium 365 Web Viewer

Reviewing Projects in Your Web Browser

Using Altium 365 allows you to view all project files from anywhere. There is no need to have additional software to discuss and agree on the schematics, PCB layout, and even the BOM. Simply access design data through your favorite web browser and get right to work reviewing project files. Provide convenient accessibility with designated permissions for anyone through a web browser without requiring a license.

To do this, use the command Show in Web Browser from the project context menu.

The web browser redirects you to the Online Project View's Design tab. The project's schematic sheets, PCB documents, and the BOM are available here.

When you double-click on an object of interest, the Properties panel will display important information.

Using the corresponding buttons, you can view the PCB files in 2D and 3D. In 2D mode, you can configure how layers are displayed at the bottom of the viewport.

When you select a net, the Properties panel opens. The corresponding net in the schematic is displayed in the schematic's connectivity list, showing all schematics containing the selected net. Left click on the schematic name to open it on Web Viewer.

The Tasks tab provides access to job activity requests presented in a Kanban board flow style, with their progress state (To Do, In Progress, and Resolved) arranged as Task rows or "swimlanes." Details about Tasks are presented in the Tasks in Altium 365 chapter.

The Releases tab presents every project release, with the latest release at the top of the list. Each entry shows a snapshot of the date/time of release, along with what packages are included. It also includes files to be sent to the manufacturer. How to create output files and how to send them to the manufacturer will be discussed in the Project Release to Manufacturing chapter.

The History tab allows you to browse a timeline of major events related to the project, including its creation, commits, releases, clones, and MCAD exchanges. Each time a supported event happens in association with the project, that event is added to the timeline as a dedicated tile with various actions supported. More details are available in the Project History chapter.
