This is a basic how to walk-through of the esssentials to get Civil 3D 2020.2 up and running in BIM 360 Design.
James provides the necessary details and solid suggestions to get it done. There are some important need to know details and issues to watch out for buried away in the video. There are significant issues that get ignored here or are only covered peripherally.
For example - BIM 360 Design templates and their intimate relationship to Civil 3D Project Templates.

Civil 3D Collaboration in BIM 360
Autodesk's Dave Simeone, John Sayre, and Ben Wardell deliver an overview of BIM 360 Design’s newest functionality, Collaboration for Civil 3D.
From the Autodesk Infrastructure Channel Playlists.
Recording playback starts 4:25 minutes in to avoid the usual Autodesk webinar start up goings on.
This is a basic Civil 3D in BIM 360 Design overview with the basic but important questions answered.
Currently, Civil 3D in BIM 360 Design does not support live edits of Civil 3D Survey data, but the drawing output results as XREFs and DREFs works fine.
BIM 360 Review Approvals for ArcGIS Updates
Adam Walmsley, a Senior Technical Specialist at Autodesk, shows how to employ a simple single step review process in BIM 360 Design for ArcGIS data updates.
From the Autodesk ANZ YouTube Channel.
In the real world this Review process for approval in going to be more complicated.
The Review itself does not protect the data source from being updated intentionally or accidently from Civil 3D in this context.
The point of the video is that BIM 360 Reviews are not super difficult to set up and employ. They can move drawings and resources around in the BIM 360 environment.
Obviously, the trust relationship with the data provider might be a bit more problematic without the BIM 360 Reviews and Issues capabilities.
