Enabling REVIT Worksets
Worksets are a CAD managers dream. (or nightmare I suppose if you go in unprepared). Worksets help organize your project and act as a security guard on who can edit what. You can see it all but you are only allowed to edit certain objects. Ussually things like Levels and Grids are off limits to the general user. The first rule of worksets is to get the project template file as fine tuned as possible. Then ONE user, usuualy the team captain, takes the project to as far as possible before enabling worksets. Then the team captain allows other users in to check out the 'central model' and save their own local copy that will then interact back with the central file.
