O.K., so I am at the point where I think I understand worksets quite well... In my arch firm, we never have problems with worksharing. I am currently "leased out" to an MEP firm to help them troubleshoot and impliment Revit standards, and a couple users in this firm continue to have STC conflict on a daily basis. They are the only ones, by the way, that experience this problem. I don't have a print screen of the error message, and I can't figure out how to duplicate the same error on my machine, but I'll try to describe it.
User A opens his local file at 7:00 a.m and works for 3 hours without RL and without STC.
User B opens his local file at 9:00 am and works for 1 hour without RL and without STC.
At 10:00 a.m., user A attempts to STC, but gets error message, "cannot STC until User B STC and Relinquishes."
So... User B attempts to STC, but gets the exact same (but opposite) error message, "cannot STC until User A STC and Relinquishes.
How does this happen and is there anyway around it without one user sacrificing the work done since his last STC? Apparently, changes have been made by both users to the same element... but that should be impossible with "borrowing." These guys often lose half a day's work... almost every day. What can i do to fix it and keep it from happening again.
