Raven - A BIM Communication Tool

From the Autodesk App Store:

Since the Autodesk Communicator was discontinued for the new BIM 360® Design platform, we're back to the most efficient means of communication in Westeros: Ravens...

"Raven - A BIM Communication Tool" is an Autodesk® Revit® communication tool that monitors the user's activity for the new BIM 360 Design platform, and enables users to send instant messages through a common conversation specific to the project they are collaborating in.

It notifies the user instantly whenever a team member joins the active project, is no longer active, reloads the latest modifications, or synchronizes with the central file (check screenshots).

It is crucial for every collaboration team so that they avoid overlapping synchronize with central operations which lead to hours of wasted time. In addition, it helps these team members communicate with their remote counterparts.
