Take Control of your Revit 2018 Schedules

IMAGINiT Technologies

By Todd Behning

Over the years of working with Revit, it has become necessary to keep the View and Sheet Browser organized. Now Autodesk has given us the ability to organize our Schedules. As our Revit projects get bigger and more complex so do our schedules. Some projects may only have 5 to 6 schedules, but I have worked on projects with dozens of schedules. Some schedules may end up on sheets but many are designed to just support the design or QA/QC process. It can become increasingly difficult to keep the schedules organized.

How do we currently manage our long list of schedules?
