The head honcho is asking for a "note" to be put on the title sheet of our projects that will indicate which version of Revit the project was designed in.  I was hoping to come up with something that wasn't requiring user input on the part of the modeler.  Is there a way to create a parameter that will automatically report the version of Revit? 

He is having issues going back and having to hunt down which version the project was designed in if he wants to open it.  We utilize BIM360 and with older projects, the fact that the models are saved over a couple of different websites in BIM360 and BIM360 Teams, it can be difficult.  Also, you can't tell just by going to the website.

I do not know of a way to make this be automatic.

I do not understand why setting a simple parameter when you create the title sheet is a problem unless your project managers are completly inept.

We add an R18 or R20 etc. to the file name so you know which version of Revit the project was drawn in. Typically we don't upgrade the version once a project is started and/or consultants have started receiving our model. Because projects can span a few years, it's not uncommon to have multiple versions of revit being deployed in the office. This way you know before opening the file which version to use to launch the program. 

I'm not aware of anyway to pull the revit version as a parameter not requiring input. Although, if it was a parameter like a project number, once set it really shouldn't get changed. The default text could be RXX and placed on the margins next to a time stamp or something similar. The only real issues that would arrise would be if someone doesn't put the input in, or doesn't change it if/when the file gets upgraded. 

You can also use this "trick" to verify the file year before opening.
