A key schedule is a way to avoid having to type in every individual field of data for every item in your design. The key schedule acts as a master document that fills in some data for individual item listings. For example, you can set the key schedule to say that all floor objects in the kitchen have the material of tile. You can even do this for multiple rooms, such as making all bedroom floor objects carpet. Learn how to create a key schedule in Revit Architecture 2015 with this online video.
…Many of the fields available in schedules are simple text based fields.…Inputting values in such fields can be a tedious affair.…Using key schedules can help.…A key schedule is a schedule that allows you to create…a name style complete with the values for several text fields.…You can add this key to your main schedule and then choosing one of the predefined…key styles from the list, Revit will input…all of the other values designated by that key.…So I made a file called Key Schedules and this is just a…copy of our entire condominium building and I'm in a room finish schedule.…If we look here on the project browser, you can…see the name of this view is Room Finish Schedule.…
And if I scroll through this schedule, this includes the entire building.…So you can see level one, level two, and level three.…And I've added headers and some little sub-totals and even…a square footage sub-total here, which is all very useful information.…But the real work here as you can see is inputting…all of this finished information in the middle of the schedule.…

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.
