I am working in Revit 2010 and I was wondering if the name of local files matter for when you synchronize with central?

As for example......I have Revit installed on my computer with my name, we'll say JSmith.....so when i creat my local copy it gives me the file name of CENTRAL_JSmith

But i have recently gotten a new computer and my computer had been transfered to a different person in the office....even though his computer has his name, we'll say MRogers, when he creates a new local copy it still gives him the name CENTRAL_JSmith instead of using his name....any suggestions on why this is happening?

 

Thanks!

You need to go to Options in Revit, and in the General tag there is a field for Username. By default it is filled out with the computer login name, but it can be changed to whatever you want.

 

Edit: That username does matter when it comes to syncing with the central file, it thinks that the same person is checking out the worksets. R2010 uses that username to automatically name the local file, but the local filename does not affect syncing with the central file.

Our firm has one account for our Autodesk log-in for our subscription. We have to log on to this account to do updates and loading new programs.  When using Revit 2019 I was able to log on to my Autodesk account and open the program and save a local file with my account username.  After loading Revit 2020 I am not able to open 2020 when logged on to my Autodesk account. I now have to log in to the group account as do the others.  My question is can we all have separate local files with the same user name and still sync with the central file?

Bump  Can anyone answer my question?  We are getting ready to start a project in Revit for the first time and am wondering if we are going to have problems worksharing.  Thank you.

Update:  Our admin never set up the users! Now we are able to log in under our user names.
