Once and awhile, users who are not logged into the project (or in this case, no longer working w/ the company) remain borrowers or owners of a workset. Is there a way to delete, override or administer these users?

Yes, go to settings/options & change your worksets username to match theirs. I think you might have to close Revit & restart it (but maybe not) Then you can relinquish the worksets they have checked out. Then simply change your worksets name back to yours. make sense?

Once you change the username, you will have to open the central file [or the user's local file, if it is still accessible] then you should be able to relinquish worksets in full by doing a "save to central". You shouldn't need to save a new local file under the defunct name.

I had to do this a couple times, myself. Good luck.

Yes but what happens when that person come back and he finds out the his local file is busted because someone change his user name in the central. Be careful.

"Yes but what happens when that person come back and he finds out the his local file is busted because someone change his user name in the central."



Opening from the central file should not affect someone's local file.
This is only a way to use the person's usermname to access and relinquish [administer] worksets that may need to be reallocated without having to fiddle with someone's local file. It appears that a Revit Workset uses a file that stores the owership of (sub)worksets in relation to the central file and occasionally ownership issues can get stuck in the "cogs" of this file with the various checking-in/out and borrowing of worksets..

The important thing to remember is that users must take care to relinquish worksets and both Save to Central (STC) and then a Save Local after the STC. Also, when you primarily borrow elements instead of user worksets (highly recommended) Revit often requires a second STC to complete the transaction followed by a Save Local. Without the Save Local, the local copy is left out of sync with the central file. A symptom of the above is when a workset remains checked out to a user yet the user doesn't see the workset checked out in their local. Each release of Revit is getting better at trapping and preventing this condition by prompting you to save locally etc. It is not a good practice to return worksets at the Central File when you do not know the status of the local file. If that user purposely retained worksets for some reason you will cause them to lose the work that had not yet been reconciled with the Central File. The best practice is to have users place their local files in a common accessible location on their PC so that anyone else can log in, open the file as them (changing the workset username accordingly), STC and Save Locally. If you can speak with the user first and be assured you aren't going to lose data, then doing it at the Central File is fine. In many instances, the local file will need to be recreated as it will be out of sync with the Central File as a result. Though creating a new Local File each day is advisable anyway when there are several team members with varying degrees of participation.
