When trying to edit elements that are owned by other team members, you can place editing requests. An editing request will alert the other user in realtime and allow them the opportunity to grant or deny the request.
- [Instructor] In this video, we're going…to look at editing requests,…so when you're working in a workshare enabled project…and you need to edit something,…if somebody else already owns it,…you actually have the ability right in the software…to be able to request that they relinquish…that object so that you can edit it,…and in certain cases, they'll be able to do that.…In other cases, they won't.…So, let's go through several scenarios…where using the internal editing request feature…and see how it behaves.…So we'll start with something really simple.…Let's just say that I'm anticipating…that I might need to do some work…on this exterior wall right here.…
To set myself up for that, I'm going to…select that wall and try to borrow that element.…Now when I do, it will generate a warning…and it tells me that I can't borrow that element…because Ringo currently owns the element.…In previous videos, I've just clicked cancel here…but this time, I'm going to click the place request.…Now, the trouble with place request is…
Part 1 (Revit Worksharing: Users) introduces all of the terminology and techniques that you need to know to join and participate in a workshare-enabled project successfully. Learn how to create and edit local files, and connect and sync them with the central model. Plus, find out how to create useable collections of elements called worksets and detach files from the central project when necessary.
While the only way to truly master Revit collaboration is to participate in a worksharing project with a real team, this series is designed to give you the tools you need to collaborate with confidence and get up to speed quickly and efficiently.
- Creating a local file
- Editing a local file
- Synchronizing with central
- Understanding worksets and the Workset dialog
- Opening a model in detached mode
- Worksharing tips
