Is there a way to keep certain doors within a project from showing up in a door schedule?  For example - I am using Curtain walls for chainlink fencing.  I need to schedule a "PAIR" of 4'-0" chainlink gates, within a 8'-0" opening.  But I want to only see one line in the door schedule.  I want to schedule both doors  as a "pair" of doors in the schedule using one line.  I currently have (2) 4'-0" curtain panel doors in the model.  Should I create a curtain panel door family with both doors in it?  What would be the best way to handle this situation?  I was thinking if I only tag one of the doors the other could be "Hidden" in the schedule?   Is it possible to create a filter in the shcedule to achieve this?  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

short answer: yes, there is a way to keep doors from showing up. using the many filter options within schedules accomplishes that. (one option is to number it something like 500 and if your doors only go up to 300 then you can filter any number above 300. that is just one of many ways to do it though)

long answer: just make a family that is an 8' gate and insert that in your curtain wall. then it will only be scheduled as that particular type and you won't have to worry about hiding things.

A good trick for schedules is to create a yes/no parameter for whatever you are scheduling called "appears in schedule".  This way you have full control over what appears in the schedule.  I use it for rooms, multi-category, doors, etc.

Thanks.  The Yes/No parameter was a good idea.

I'm having trouble with this right now.

 

There is a yes/no parameter called "Appears In Schedule" as usual.  For instance, it's used for toilet partition doors that don't go in the door schedule.

 

The problem is, if the door has a mark entered (like, say, 116B) it will appear in the schedule even if this parameter is unchecked.  So apprently the schedule ignores the checkbox if there is data in the Mark column.

 

Any way around this?  I would like to mark some doors but still have them stay out of the schedule.  Thanks.

We have a project parameter called 'DO NOT SCHEDULE' (Text Value - Instance) which is assigned to everything in the project.  By assigning a character in that field that you can filter for, you can use this to filter in all your schedules.

Thanks for that idea, but there already is a yes/no parameter for "Appears In Schedule".  The problem is that this is overridden or ignored when the door also happens to have a mark assigned to it.

Well duh.... If it doesn't work then is it worth anything?

 

BTW - Is you schedule set to filter by this parameter?  If not then......

Yes, the filter works fine when there is no door number assigned to the door.  It just gets ignored if there is one.  Weird.
