Like many other companies, ALLPLAN is facing up to the current challenges and responsibilities due to the new corona virus (SARS-CoV-2). We have already taken comprehensive internal preventive measures to protect our workforce, as the safety and health of all persons employed in the company is a central concern for us.

These measures have practically no influence on our ability to service our customers. ALLPLAN is a modern, digitally oriented company, which means that appointments and coordination processes can still be carried out, for example, via video conferencing.

Even before the current pandemic, we have been looking after you by means of online training courses, calls, and presentations. Nevertheless, we are taking this situation as an opportunity to further expand and optimize our online service in order to give you an even better customer experience. We are available for you and your needs.  

I would also Detlef-Schneiderlike to thank you in the name of the entire ALLPLAN team for your trust and loyalty and look forward to continuing our good cooperation.

Kind regards

Dr. Detlef Schneider




How can I work from home with Allplan without a direct LAN connection to a common file storage folder?


1. Working from home with direct access to the project data

If you want to work together on projects, you can use the Allplan Share cloud solution, to work with Allplan without a LAN connection to the central file storage folder. Learn more about Allplan Share, or click here to contact your sales partner 

2. Working from home without access to the office data (working locally):

2.1 Allplan with workgroup manager:

If workgroup manager is included in your license, you can check out a computer or laptop with projects from the workgroup environment. You can then work from home without access to the server. The projects on the computer or laptop that is checked out are locked for the CAD users on the network. These users see the comment you entered when you checked out the computer

2.2 Allplan without workgroup manager:

Using the office computer

If you have neither workgroup manager nor network access, you must uninstall Allplan and install it again by specifying the local paths. To work with a project, you must back it up and then import it to the local installation.

Using a new (private) computer

If you want to use a new computer to work from home, you must return the license at the office computer and then use this license to install Allplan on the new computer.


If the above does not help you and you want to quickly get operational in your home office, please contact us on our emergency request form.
