Revit supports multiuser access to your project, which is contained in a single file. Allowing multiple users to work on your project lets you delegate different parts of the plan to your team. Learn how to access a multiuser project and use workshare in Revit Architecture 2015 through this online course.
…In this movie I want to talk briefly about what…we do when we have a multiple user team.…In Revit your entire project lives in a single project file.…This raises a problem when you have more than one person on your…team because only one person can access the project file at a given time.…So this would not make it very practical for teams to work together.…So what Revit offers is a feature called work sharing.…With work sharing you have a central file, and…this file is typically stored on a network server.…
It can be any network server, any map drive will do the job.…And then each user on the project team creates what we call a local version or…a local copy of this file that they actually do their day to day work in.…The local copy is created literally on the local hard drive.…And it maintains a connection back to the central file.…And what happens is every so often the users…on the team will synchronize with the central file.…That'll take their changes and publish them to the…central file, and any changes made by their colleagues.…

Q: Which versions of Revit should I use with this course?
A: This course is written for users of Revit Architecture 2015 and Revit LT 2015. Because Revit LT does not have all of the same features as Revit Architecture, some movies in this course will not be relevant for Revit LT. Additionally, there are some topics that are relevant in both versions, but the button layout or location of those tools are different. In those cases, the features and procedures for Revit Architecture are shown in the course.
