Hello,  I am a new user in Revit (my background is in Inventor-Mechanical Design)

At the moment I am supporting an architect that is an AutoCAD user, until she gets up to speed in Revit.  Recently we created a design and produced 30% complete drawings for review and to send out for Bid.  We then continued on with the design and released 60% complete drawings.  In AutoCAD the architect saves this as a separate file so she can go back to the 30% if ever needed.  She wants me to do the same with our Revit files but my concern is the amount of space that will be used on the server if I do this with all of our projects, I will end up with 2 or 4 copies of the same project, at different stages.

I am curious on how other firms handle this.  Is there a way to place a 'bookmark' within the project file so we can go back to a previous point in our project?  

I tried to use the search function but, to be honest, I am not even sure I know what exactly I am asking so it is hard to search for relevant answers.

We pretty much 'Archive' the project at every stage. DD,Building Review,Bid,DOB and CD. You can always keep working on the main file as usual. Revit is 'heavier' program than ACAD. I don't know of any bookmarking within REVIT. I tried searching for possibilities when we had issues with DOB Set vs CD set. Finally for some projects, we even save two different versions for DOB/CD ( I know , that's wrong to do, but i had to). When you archive make sure you detach from central, discard all worksets, audit and save as..with relevant file name.

That's all i know. I am all ears for ideas, if any.
