There is no way to create a template file that has worksharing turned on at the start or that contains linked files. So as an alternative, some firms like to create a special seed project file and then save this as a new name each time they want to creat a new project. This provides a nice way to ensure consistent project setup from one projec to the next.
- [Voiceover] If you're like most firms,…when you create a new project…you like to do it from a template file.…Template files are listed right here…as these little shortcut links,…and by just clicking on this,…you can immediately create a brand-new file…from this template.…Now, as you can see when I hover over each of these,…templates end with an "rte" extension,…or "Revit Template File", so ".rte".…Now, you can create your own Revit Template Files…easily enough by creating a version of the file,…saving all the settings and all the configurations you want…as a starting point for new projects,…and then just saving it as a template.…
And if you wanna learn more about the process of doing that,…we have a four-part series here in the library…that you can check out, and I welcome you to do that.…Well, when we're talking about work-sharing,…the subject of this course, sadly,…Revit Template Files cannot store work-sharing.…In other words, you can't have a Revit Template File…that has work-sharing turned on. Okay?…So, unfortunately, you'll always…
Paul F. Aubin teaches you the skills you need to create your central model, configure worksharing settings, and perform ongoing maintenance as the project progresses.

This course covers all the skills you need to manage worksharing projects from start to finish.
