Create BBID from Org Admin Invitation

Bluebeam Installation Guide

Accepting Subscription Seat Allocation from Org Admin to Create BBID and Bluebeam Account

To use Bluebeam and all its market-leading features, you have to create a Bluebeam ID (BBID). Setting up a BBID involves creating a simple user account that gives you access to the complete suite of Bluebeam services on up to five different devices. You can use your BBID (your email address) to unlock all state-of-the-art features and use cases of Revu 21.

Bluebeam Revu 21 subscription plans for Bluebeam Basics, Core, and Complete packages enable access to Bluebeam Cloud, Studio, and Revu 21. If your organisation has subscribed to Bluebeam, your administrator can allocate your subscription seat by sending you an invitation to join their account.

This step-by-step guide will let you explore the process required to accept the invitation and create a BBID to start using Bluebeam. Let’s go through each of these sequential steps one by one.

Step 1 – Go to your email account. Look for the invitation email like the one below from your Org Admin to join the Bluebeam account and click on the “Accept Invitation” button.


Step 2 – You will be directed to the sign-in form. If you don't already have a Bluebeam ID, create one by navigating to the "CREATE ACCOUNT" tab.


Step 3 – Under the Create Account tab, enter the required information in all the mandatory fields.





First Name

The first part of your name. e.g., John for John Shepard.

Last Name

The last part of your name, (a surname or a family name). e.g., Shepard for John Shepard.

Bluebeam Display Name

Bluebeam Display Name will be the username in Studio used to identify the edits and markups you perform while working in Studio. e.g., John Shepard.


The email address you want to use as your Bluebeam ID. Your Studio Session, Project invitations, and notifications or alerts will be directed to this address. e.g.,


The same password will be used to access all of Bluebeam's services with BBID. It must contain 8 – 32 characters involving at least 1 uppercase letter, 1 lowercase letter, 1 number, and 1 special (non-alphanumeric) character like ^&£$*$, etc.

Confirm Password

Re-enter the same password again.

Step 4 – Once you fill in all the required fields, click the “Create Account” button.


Step 5 – Enter additional (not mandatory) information in the next session. Then, click the “Finalize” button at the bottom right corner of the form.

(The information you provided in Step-5 will appear auto-filled in the new session form).


Once done, your account will be registered successfully.


Step 6 – Next, go to your email address and look for a confirmation email like the one below. Click the “Get Started” button.


Step 7 – In the new browser session, choose your server location.


The region you choose will decide your server location. Choosing the right region that aligns with your desired server location is mandatory to avoid future problems.

Step 8 – Enter the email address you choose as your Bluebeam ID (BBID) in the sign-in form. Then click “Next.”


Step 9 – Enter your password and click “Sign In.”


After signing in, you can check your subscription status from the overview page, add new reseller accounts (if authorised by the Org Admin), and browse all partner accounts and their respective users.


Since your subscription status is Accepted, you can now access all Bluebeam services, including Bluebeam Cloud, Revu, and Studio, with your Bluebeam ID (BBID).
