- [Instructor] I'd like to wrap up our exploration…of managing workshare enabled projects…by summarizing some of what we learned…and sharing with you a few tips,…so let's just remind ourselves…first of all of what the rules are.…So if you're in charge of managing workshare enabled…projects, make sure your users are following the rules.…No one works in the central model.…Rule number two is, remember rule number one.…Create a local model every time you launch Revit.…Don't become too attached to a local file,…it's just a temporary file, the more the better,…and remember that even when you create those local files…they can actually become additional backups,…so create that new local file every time.…
Rely on element borrowing.…You really want your users to be using element borrowing…and not checking out entire work sets wherever possible.…And finally, make sure that…they are synchronizing regularly.…Sometimes users will complain that it takes too long…or it's too slow or whatever the problem may be,…but it's absolutely critical that everybody…
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. Learn how to move a central file, update links, upgrade projects, open local copies in detached mode, and archive the project when it's done. Plus, find out how to monitor sharing and user activity. This course covers all the skills you need to manage worksharing projects from start to finish.
