I've set up a color scheme based off of Department assignments for rooms. Is there a way to rename the color scheme value (Department)?

In other words, one of my departments was mis-named and there isn't an obvious way to correct it short of deleting the color value and creating a new one, which qould be annoying as I;d have to reassign all the rooms to the new department value.

There may be a better way, but here is how I did it:  Create a room schedule, adding only the Department field from the list.  In the Sorting/Grouping area, deselect the "itemize every instance" option and select the "grand totals" option.  Click OK back to the schedule.  You should now have a schedule listing only the departments used (no duplicates).  Now select the department you want to change in the schedule (like you would edit text in any schedule), rename it and you should be good to go.  Let me know if it worked for you, as I only did a small scale test.

 

Cheers

thanks. that's exactly how you do it. it worked fine.

the key was to deselect the "itemize every instance" option. which then allowed me to rename the department rather than creat new ones.

WARNING: I just realized when you use this method, the colors that I had selected in my color scheme changed. Regardless, it's still faster than reassigning rooms, just make sure you copy your RGB color settings so you can re-input them.
