Has anyone figured out how to put shared parameters in their schedules, or to tag project parameters.  I'm doing a key room finish schedule, and it's of no help if I can't show the Key Values on the plans.  I made a room tag with a "Finish Key" shared parameter, but I'm not able to schedule that parameter.  I also tried to use the default parameter (room style), but I can't seem to get that to show in my room tag, or any other tag for that matter.  I've seen many threads on this, but they all seem to have hit a dead end.  Any help is greatly appreciated.  There must be something in place.  It would make no sense to have Room Type A, B, C, etc and not be able to show which rooms are of these types.

Here is your answer ...

Assign a parameter to rooms ... call it Room Style or whatever

-  Create a room tag that points to that value ... now you can place that in the room

-  The room style parameter (or whatever) is also available in your room schedule if you want it

Thanks WWHub for replying.  My problem is...

1. If I use the default room style parameter in the schedule (the one that is already loaded in), when I go to make a room tag this parameter isn't listed when I try to create the label. 

OR

2. If I create a shared parameter for this function, and define it as a "room" project parameter in the model file, it will show up in my tag if I manually type it in the tag or go into the room properties and type it in, but it will not schedule.

 I would like to find something that is totally parametric so that if I change a room style from A to B, it will change in the schedule and the room tag.

If this is possible and I'm misunderstading your reply, would you mind posting some step by step instructions?

Thanks again for your help and quick response!

Sorry but this does work if you do it correctly. 

  1. First you have to create a shared parameter. 
  2. Next, edit your room label - you can delete what you don't want and assign one of the existing labels to a new parameter which you choose from your list of shared parameters.   Save this as a new type of room label ... you can use more than one in a room in any view.
  3. Then add this parameter to your project and assign it to rooms.
  4. Load your new room tag.
  5. Now add this parameter to your room schedule.

I don't think you can have Shared Parameters in your Key Schedules.  You can have them in your tags\schedules but you won't be able to use the key schedule to change these Shared Parameters.

 

Try this,

 

Use the Key schedule to apply as much information as you'd like.

Create a new room schedule and make sure it's grouped by Room Style and also has your Shared Parameters, Make sure Itemize every instance is turned off.

Now change the Shared Parameters to match up with your Room Styles.

Try not to re-invent the wheel here, use as many of the built in parameters as possible.  Also Rooms don't have any type properties, which is why grouping of schedules comes in handy.

 

Good Luck!

Hey ... YOU DON'T HAVE TO USE THE BUILT IN ROOM STYLES!

 

Use my method and call it a room style or call it myroom style...  True - when you assign myroom style and assign it to a room, it will not be automatic but if you are creative enough, you can set up myroom style schedules that are sorted and filtered so that they can be updated in just a few seconds using the built in drop downs... 

 

AND .... THE MYROOMSTYLE can be tagged in the room .... which was a main part of the original question.

Thanks guys!  I created the shared parameter for the schedule and room tag and used a regular room schedule (not key schedule) and sorted by my parameter "Finish Key."  I'm sure that's what you were trying to tell me all along! 

Our office just started using a finish schedule grouped into finish keys (in AutoCAD) instead of listing every room, so when I saw that Revit has a key schedule I was all excited to use it and couldn't seem to look beyond it.

Thanks Again!

There are so many ways to do things in any program.  The trick is to discover what rules you bring to the problem that aren't really there.

 

This was not the best solution.  That would have been that Revit would allow you to point to the built in schedule key.
