Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Accessing multiuser worksharing projects, part of Revit Architecture 2014 Essential Training.
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 net work 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 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, and bring them down and update their local copy.…

Q: Is this course valid for all of the Revit architecture products? Are there any movies in this course that do not work in Revit LT?
A: This course is designed to work for anybody learning any of the Revit architecture products, including Autodesk Revit (available as part of the "Autodesk Building Design Suite"product), Autodesk Revit Architecture, and Autodesk Revit LT.
However, some individual movies in the course are not valid in Revit LT, due to the limited feature set of that application. Those movies are:
Chapter 3 - Accessing multi-user worksharing projects
Chapter 5 - Establishing shared coordinates
Chapter 6 - Using the shape editing tools to create a flat roof
Chapter 7 - Working with stairs
