Worksets
« on: March 16, 2017, 12:51:56 pm »
How many worksets do you have implemented at the beginning of a project? Do you consider it better to have just one and let the people work? Or, do you take a more rigid approach right from the beginning?

we have a script that runs; In Revit 2017 they click on Collaborate and then select the Collaborate within your network in the background all the standard worksets are added. We have 13 standard worksets.
I never like a user to start a project with no worksets, way more work to move elements to the correct workset.

Make it simple and they will use it.
Collaboration is everything

Having a script is a great way to insure consistency! Do you use the exact same worksets on every project? Depending on the size of the building, the client and other factors, we have needed to add or remove worksets to both help with how the drawings look and for QA/QC.
