i would like to add a label to the outlet  family for the height of the outlet. it would be similar to the label for the GFI designation. i try to follow how the GFI label was applied but i cannot get it to work for the height label. has anyone tried this with success?

Can you post the family you currently have and for clarification is this a modeled outlet family that shows the outlet symbol when in plan view or is it just the outlet symbol?

The issue was that in Revit the origin of the family is assocciated to reference planes and not the level line in the family. And in the family you had the "Placement Height" parameter dimensioning from the level line to the reference plane.

What i did to fix this was create a reference plane at the level line and locked it. Made that reference line the origin and then dimensioned from that to the centerline of the outlet. Now when you adjust "Placement Height" parameter it will adjust correctly. Also becasue of this you need to always make sure default elevation is set to 0.
