Get alerts with valuable news, such as service pack updates and the latest training videos. With this new feature, you’ll never miss an important message related to your Vectorworks software. But don’t worry, we won’t bombard you with alerts.

“The Message Center is a great way to let Vectorworks users know about upcoming webinars and other events that can help them improve their workflows — and it’s just a little bell icon down in the corner,” says Stephen Schrader, PLA, ASLA, landscape architect at Holcombe Norton Partners. “It’s not some annoying window that pops up when you’re in the middle of an important task, or yet another email to glance at and then forget about.”

“It doesn't clog up my email inbox,” says Lighting Designer Cory Pattak. “It instead gives me Vectorworks information while my head is in Vectorworks mode.”

Designed to be informative, yet simple and noninvasive, the alerts display in the Message bar when a new message is available. Many of our users have found this new feature to be extremely helpful.

“For messages about tips and training materials, it removes barriers to finding new tools or methods,” says Ion Webster, principal at Pults & Associates, LLP. “It allows the user to take many little steps toward improving their Vectorworks knowledge over time.”
