If you are working on v9 many of the workset sharing obstacles have been resolved. If you are all working in the main workset there will be problems. Have everyone take the tutorial on worksets, and impliment them on shared projects...

You might also try adding some more worksets. We usually do one for each level of the building for interior walls, Exterior for the shell, RCP's for each level, Site, Roof, Core Circulation and so on. It really helps.

How often should people be saving to the central file?  I am working on our first big project that requires 3 people to work on.  I save to central any time I finish up a certain task of the project.  The other 2 usually only save to central when going to lunch or at the end of the day, I know this because I hit the reload latest after I save to the central file and get the message that there are no changes.  Am I saving too much or are they not saving enough?  Will this cause us problems as the project gets near completion?  Using version 9.1.

Since a save to central doesn't take as long as an AutoCAD save, I don't understand why others in your firm are not saving more often.  I think every 1/2 hour is kind of minimum and every time you may be away from your unit is a must! 

Your local saves can be less frequent.  BTW- I do not check the box to save locally after saving to central because I have beed caught in an in-escapable loop where I lost all of my work.

Why does my linked structural file unload everytime I save to central?  I am finding working with others and a central file is the pits!

The rule in our office is to save every 15-20 minutes.  Saving is much faster in RA2008 since it only updates new information.  Then we also close Revit when we go to lunch to clear out the memory and start fresh when we get back.  I always check teh box to save locally and have never had any issues. 

Funny . . . as I am typing this someone in my office just came to me and had a crash.  Luckily he had just saved a few minutes earlier!!!

JHanby,

 

Where is your structural file linked from?  The linked file has to be in a shared location - can not be a local link.

The structural model is linked from a file on our server.  I made sure that the central was linked properly but it is still doing it.  This is the first project that the other two people I am working with have done on Revit so I am not sure if it is something that they are doing or what but it is driving me crazy!

I was having a problem with one of my linked REVIT files not loading when I opened my local.  I made the path absolute and that cleared up the problem  I've never seen a file unload when doing a save to central.
