We have a project that consists of almost 150 existing rooms that are to be completely redone.  There are 5 different types of rooms, so we have 5 different groups for each room type.  The problem is since these are existing there is a lot of phase changing within the groups, but the changes do not update in the other groups.  I have been updating the individual instances of the groups mannually as I go but I'm hoping there is a way to tell revit that the groups are identical in phasing too.

I have never had to do this so not writing from experience.

You may have to split your groups in two according to phase.   Then you can select all groups of one phase and select all then set those to the correct phase.... etc.

Having had this problem just recently on a dormitory renovation (2015), I hate to be the bearer of bad news. The individual components in each group all have their own phasing which means you have to open each group and change the phasing for each component and then close the group (and repeat for each group). This is cumbersome, painful, and hurts everytime.

But there is a way to soften the blow. Say you have a group for existing components, a group for demo'd components, and a group for new components for each room (15 different groups v your original 5). When you place the groups, make sure the phase of the view is set to what you want the components to be (i.e. if placing a new group, the phase is set to new). This will save time as you'll only have to edit the demo groups to change the 'Phase Demolished' setting.

This works for the most part but I'd love a better suggestion if someone has one.

There is a video by CAD Technology Center at:

near minute 20:00 that discusses this.
