Anyone know how to do this? Basically after the room name I would like to  specify the level of the floor in relation to the the project base point. i would like to be able to schedule this as well. Any ideas how this would be done? Just as a heads up, I would prefer to have the information within the tag rather than having to add an additional spot level at every room tag.

You can edit the room tag in the family editor and use a "Level" parameter to show what level the tag is on e.g. "Ground Floor Level"Room tags however are not "aware" of actual numeric levels. You could create a shared parameter that is associated to each room and create a tag to read it but you would have to fill that in individually for each room and they wouldn't change automatically of the room floor changed.

There's always Dynamo I guess.....

To be frank, using the spot elevation tool is the best solution for this. It updates if the floor level changes automatically. You don't have to create shared parameters, or enter anything as it reads the Z coordinate automatically.

A long time ago 'hand drafting era', we would name our levels according to their elevation from a project level of 0.  You could do similaraly naming a floor level that hosts your rooms accordingly.   These levels may not be the ones you use for the rest of the model, just hosting your rooms, so you would have them turned off in other views.(Think worksets)
