Getting started in Frame
On this page you will find support videos and tutorials that guide you through the first steps to quickly get started using Frame Build or Frame In Use.
In Frame, you have the option to opt-in to the criteria schemes: DGNB certification schemes (2016, 2020, 2023), the Voluntary Sustainability Class (VSC) requirements collection, or MBA 2016 in your project. Find out how to choose one or more of these criteria schemes.
Watch this video to see how to copy assignment answers from a previous step to the current step. In this example, the tasks are copied from a DGNB main task, but the procedure is also applicable if you want to copy tasks in your own criteria or in the FBK
1. complete the main task
Once all indicator tasks are set to completed or reviewed, you can finalize the main task by clicking “Approve” (see Figure 1 + 2). Remember to check that the tasks are marked as either intended or documented.
When the main task is approved, time-stamped result files are automatically generated for the RFBB to use in their review.
2. Change step
Once you have completed the main task, you can switch steps (see Figure 3). This way, you can continue working on the platform while the compliance check is being carried out.
If there are comments on individual tasks in the compliance check, you can reopen these tasks and continue working on them once the compliance check is over.
3. invite RFBB to the “Sustainability Leader” team
Under the menu item “User” you can now invite the RFBB to the platform. To do so, click “Invite new user”, enter the email firstname.lastname@example.org and add them to the “Sustainability Manager” team (see Figure 4).
4. Send email to RFBB that the documentation is ready
Inform the Council for Sustainable Construction by email at email@example.com that material is available for review. Note in the email which step the review should be done in, so that the RFBB can easily find the review results.
