i've read through the previous threads that seemed applicable and was unsatisfied with the answers I found.  I am both picky and lazy.  I created a model of an existing hospital in 2013 and inadvertently created everything in the Phase "New construction".  Ooops.  I went back through and changed all existing conditions to Existing Construction.  Seemed to work pretty slick.  Then, I started building the schedules for our teeny little OR remodel project.  I need only the five NEW room names to show up on the schedule since absolutely nothing is happening to the 300 existing rooms I tagged.  I don't want to delete those tags because we will use the drawings in campus inventory drawings for the client.  BUT, I don't want them to show up on my schedule for this little project. 

 

So, is there any fab new way in 2013 to change a room tag to a phase other than the phase it was created in?  I'd rather have a quick fix that makes sense (why didn't the tag phase change when the room's bounding elements changed phase to existing???).  I can, of course, burn billable hours and go through and retag all the rooms in some weird work around (thinking of using text since the room nos. don't matter at this point, although that could come back to bite me in the future, I'll worry about it then).

 

You guys/gals haven't failed me yet.  I'm hoping this one has a new solution in 2013 that I didn't see addressed in the old threads.  If you have an answer, you will have my undying gratitude!

 

Thanks,

First, please understand that tags are not rooms - they just read the room data.  Second - Rooms are phase relative - they are not dependent on their boundaries for their phase.  And finally, you can add as many parameters as you need to any model category in Revit. 

From the project, we add a parameter "DO DO SCHEDULE" to all categories in the eproject.  Then in scedules, we add that field and filter to exclude any element with "X" in that field... then we hide that column.  << I believe this will be a very useful to you in many - many instances.

THANKS!!  Worked like a charm.  In the meantime I also realized I could exclude any room nos. that started with E (for existing, so clever. . .) and that worked well and quickly.  You are a great resource!  Thanks so much.  mb
