I need to find a way to include assemblies (mulitple windows, or door with side and transom) into a schedule with the windows.

I have thought of a few ways to do this but there are many issues with each, doesn't mean I can't do it that way, I am just seeking advice on best practice or maybe in the future we can model differently:

1. Make all windows an assembly. This is rather cumbersome with 400 windows and doesn't work with windows within a group.

2. Make a completely dumb schedule. I am mostly scared to do this because I have to categorize it and I don't want to mess up the model in anyway, so yes i could pick air terminals and add all custom parameters, but I don't want an engineer to have an issue down the road with rogue data. I also tried using the dumb symbol we created for the window legend but the note needs to be used in the model for the note block to work.

3. Make each assembly a window family. Only issue being I would still need the doors to be on a door schedule 

If there is a better way please let me know what your firm does

Traditionally, door schedules have a column for frame types, that means you can have a door with a "MARK" and "LEAF TYPE" in any assemblies (side lights, transoms...).

Now is the way how do you want them been shown in your Revit projects with automatic populated door or window schedules.

Each office has their own door schedule. In Revit you can customize your door schedule any way you want.

We have Door/Window/Gate schedule. Here is the way I did for my office.

1. For typical doors (door only), I created following door families, Stud Wall, Masonry Wall, Concrete Wall, Trussbilt Wall. Each family has three versions, 1-3/4" thick leaf, 2" thick leaf for detention doors, and 2" thick leaf for detention doors with electrical hardware. All door panels (door leaf) are using generic family nested into door families (door frames) with associative parameters. This way all door panels are interchangeable within those door frames. We have more than six door panels, that means we have 4 (walls) x 3 (frames) x 6 (panels) = 72 door families. Since all door panels are interchangeable, I only created 3 door frame families and six door panel families for 4 wall types, then easily organized them into 72 door families.

2. For windows, I was using door family templete. I created a different door tag for windows per our office standards.

3. For gates, I was using curtain walls, which can populate a door mark for a door (gate).

If you don't want this complicated approach, you can make all your doors (no side lights, no transoms) as stated in step 1. All other door families can be done as curtain walls; or can be done with its own unique frame with the same shared parameters for your door schedule. To have a dummy schedule is not the Revit way in my opinion.

Finally, I was able to get the file size down to less than 2 MB.

I posted my door/window/gate schedule with sample door, window and gate families in Download. The door panel was using generic family template, then nested into the door frame with associated parameters. The window was using door template, the gate was using curtain wall, this way I can populate a door/window/gate schedule per our office standards.
