Adding Buildings

Buildings that need to be added into PMDirect are the individual free-standing structures at each of your Locations where you will be performing PM work. Buildings that have been entered into MaintenanceDirect, or any other Dude Solutions application you may be using, will carry over to PMDirect and can easily be activated if you wish to use that Building in PMDirect as well. *Note: If you are not using Buildings in your MaintenanceDirect account, then you do not need to add Buildings to PMDirect.

Activating Buildings

  • Click on the Account Settings tab.
  • Click on the Buildings link.
  • You will see a list of My Buildings. The Buildings listed here are Buildings that have been set up in another Dude Solutions application you are using.
  • To activate a Building, click on the gray thumbs-down icon () next to the Building name.
  • When the page refreshes, the icon will be changed to a yellow thumbs-up () to indicate that the Building is now active in PMDirect.


How to Add New Buildings

  • From the My Buildings list, click on +Add New Building in the right hand corner.



  • Select the appropriate Location from the drop down box.
  • Enter the Building Name, Square Footage, and Number of Students for this building. Square Footage and Number of Students are not required and can be added at any time.
  • Click Save. *Note: If you add a new Building to PMDirect, don't forget to log into MaintenanceDirect to activate the Building in that application.
