Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Opening a collaborative team project, part of Up and Running with Revit.
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 a 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, 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 the data they are working.…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 will take their changes and publish…them to the central file and any changes made by their colleagues and bring them…
