In our practice, we normally have certain work set owned by a special name to avoid people accidently edit something in that work set. Like shared grid and level, we normally lock it to certain name. People have to sign in as this name when they want to move grid, and when they sign out, they don't relinquish the ownership of that work set. This worked pretty well.

But recently I found this ownership was systeriously removed several times. I checked the history, didn't find any record of anyone signed in as this name after I lock that work set to that name. Is there any other reason would cause the lose of this ownership?

Thanks!

I don't believe there is any way of tracking who changed the Revit ID.....  Only a record of when.

Yes, we can track the history of the different ID at when synchronize to the central file. I checked the histrory to track if there is anybody signed in and synch his work to the central as that special account. But I didn't find such a record, which means nobody signed as that speciall ID and relinquished the work set.

The record will show that this fake ID saved to central but NOT who that really was.

 

A new central... over-writing the existing, would clear out locked worksets and still allow everybody else access.

Actually...there is a log file that is kept that will tell you the host name (computer name) for each user who touches the project.

I'm not going to post it here because messing up that file can have a very negative impact on the project and I don't want to be responsible...just google or something and you will find it eventually.

I think I have seen that Brett but it says what computer (maybe - I can't recall), but in my office, I can log into any machine not currently in use both directly and in-directly.  So who knows who did it would still be a mystery unless I also track down the computer log-in and match the times. 

 

We have several stand-alone systems that we use.  I have two systems running right now on the same Revit project.  I use different user names on both.  I have to do this because the central is in our other office and our saves to central take awhile - so I can work on one while the other is saving.  Can't use Revit server because we don't have any 64 bit servers ... yet.

Yeah...this isn't fool proof considering all the variables like pool computers, new computers getting added or moved around. We don't always get the name changed right away before giving them away.

 

It does assign a code to the user but the file gets pretty cryptic to translate after that so it still wouldn't be 100%.

 

At that point, does it really matter who? When this stuff comes up in our offices I just say that "who" is not important and just educate the team on why this shouldn't happen again.
