Using Revit 2015.


We are sharing a model in my office, and using groups as suites in the model. I am the owner of the model, with others taking ownership of separate worksets for tagging, etc. 

The problem we are having: all the groups are on their own workset. We are tagging doors inside the model groups. When the person tagging the doors takes ownership of the model group workset, he is not able to actually modify anything, it asks for permission from the owner. 

I thought model groups worked like this: even though the objects in the group are different, when they are placed in a group in a workset, all objects become part of that workset and can be edited independently of the main workset (outside walls,etc.). 

Any info on this topic would be greatly appreciated. 

Thank you.

We don't typically allow anybody to checkout worksets because it is a poor practice.  You can borrow everything you need. 


Tags, dimensions, 2Dlines are all 2D and are properties of a view, not a workset so nothing to checkout here.


I will never place tags in a group because you can't adjust their location on a singular basis.  I also don't want anything in a group that I may want to manipulate through schedules.  Room finishes and door data is an example of this.  I would always rather do this activity from a scedule rather than a group but if the room is in a group, every single schedule change causes revit to edit the group, save the group, update the views then it comes back.   Consequently, I will initially place these items in a group then remove them from the group when it is time to make those modifications.
