    Default Revit - Schedule Linked Files

    Hi,

    I would like to schedule my linked revit files. Is this possible?
    Scheduling their linked sheets for the master sheet list wasn't a problem. But now all I would like to do is schedule them to get at least number counts e.g. the amount of each type of revit link.
    (Its a huge site with lots of type a, b, c housing.

    Cheers!

    Yes, you can schedule across links.
    It is an option you need to check in the Schedule Properties dialog box. You might need to put a custom filter for different buildings. That might take a little doing, but there is probably a way to get it to work.

    Hi Teresa,

    Thank you for your response.
    Yes I know how to and have used the "include elements in linked files" option. It worked well to create a master drawing list in the main file.

    You are probably right in relation to the custom filter. Unfortunately I do not know how to create these. If there is a tutorial or similar that anyone know of that would be very helpful.

    Thanks again.

    Exclamation Re: Revit - Schedule Linked Files

    My question to Revit User 1 is how on earth did you schedule or link in your other revit files sheets? I have not been able to do this. I have searched through many forums and I have not come across anyone who has been able to do this. Please help me out. I am at a loss, I work for a multi-discipline firm and I have not been able to create a Master Sheet list without creating placeholder sheets or dummy sheets which does not really help me out much.
    Any help is very much appreciated.
    Thanks,

    See the attached image.

    In order for this to work the sheets in the linked project the Appears in Sheet List parameter must be checked.
    If they want to have a different list in their drawings then you can create an additional parameter that would allow you to filter the list on your side.
