  • If you did not have an existing Trimble Identity, Trimble sends you an email with an invitation to complete your account creation. Create your account using the link in this email and make sure you fill in all of the required user profile information.

  • If you are an company's named contact, you are invited to your Tekla Online organization by Trimble when the organization is created in Tekla Online.

    You will receive an email to accept membership in your new Tekla Online organization. You are then responsible for managing the organization together with other administrators that you may assign.
