Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding a schedule view, part of Learning Revit.
In this movie, we're going to look at Schedules.…Now, Schedules in Revit can be used for a variety of purposes.…We certainly can create the traditional door schedule or room finish schedule, or…any of those sort of tables and reports that you might typically see on a document…set. Now, the big difference is, in traditional…hand drafting, you would be creating that schedule manually and painstakingly by…laying out a bunch of lines and text, and manually coordinating all that data that…was contained in there. In Revit, a schedule is a live view of the…model. So you just simply ask Revit to go look…through your model for a certain category of information and it will list out all…those items for you in a table automatically.…
Furthermore, the information is a direct live link back to the model.…So if you make any change in the schedule, the model updates, an vice versa.…If you change the model the schedule updates.…It's a live view. Now we've seen a few examples of this in…some of the earlier movies, and if we look here on the project browser and I scroll…
Note: The techniques shown in this course will work with any version of Revit, but due to backwards compatibility issues, the exercise files for this course will only work with Revit 2014. Unfortunately, we cannot downsave the files. Please see a Revit 2013 course for usable files.

Q: Will Revit 2014 files work in a previous version of Revit? Will the exercise files for this course work in Revit 2013?
A: Revit file formats are not backwards compatible. A new file format is introduced with each new release. Newer versions of Revit can open older version files without issue. However, files will be upgraded to the latest file format during the initial open. Once saved in the current version, there is no way to save them back to a previous version. Therefore, it is important to consider this issue carefully and discuss it with all project team members before beginning a project. For example, it is not possible for the architect to use a newer version of the software than the consulting engineers and vice-versa. All members of the team must collaborate using the same version/file format. This course was authored using Revit 2014. Therefore, its exercise files can be used with any flavor of Revit (Architecture, MEP, Structure, or LT) 2014 and later. Files cannot be opened with versions 2013 and prior.
