For the Revit Content Specialist, Job Captains, or Managers, what steps, procedures, and actions do you take to keep your users and content inline with company policy and standards? We have documentation for content approval (there are only a couple people in the company that can approve content) but the process of users asking for the creation or modifying of content. I find that just doing that on an as needed basis just isn't going to to work. I am working on an excel document to track the content that users are wanted made and edited (name, date asked/completed, discipline, family category/type/name/description) What about model management and modeling practices? Once again, I find that just writing down notes here and there when I am in the model just isn't going to work. What are you guys doing out there? What works, what doesn't?

Just came across this new app in the Autodesk Store. I think It's work checking out.


Our My Favorites (Basic) application will allow you to save your most used families to the Autodesk® Revit® Add-ins ribbon giving you quicker access and improving your content creation times.

No more searching and scrolling through the project browser for your most used families. 

Once the app is installed, you will be able to:

  • Assign families to your My Favorites ribbon (system or non-system families).Basic version is limited to assigning five families to the ribbon.
  • Assign custom naming and descriptions to each family button.
  • Assign custom graphics icons to each family button using the default .rfa image, a custom image such as a JPG, JPEG, etc. as well as taking a screen capture of any image on your screen.
  • Assign a keyboard shortcut to each of the five families.
  • Once the family is assigned, that family will automatically load into your projects when picked from the My Favorites ribbon.
  • Now that you have your My Favorites setup, you can quickly access your families from the ribbon or using the keyboard shorts that you assigned.
