Every day, our Ideate Software Support team fields all types of questions from AECO professionals all around the world. You can review some of these recent questions and answers via our Ideate Software Support Series blog category.

Lately we’ve found that many of our customers are dedicating time and effort towards managing their Revit model health metrics, and specifically Revit warnings data via Ideate Explorer. In order to gather consistent and more importantly, relevant warnings data, the first step is to decide which Revit warnings are important, and then assign an appropriate warnings ranking as shown below.

Assign warnings rankings

Did you know that you can sort by the column headers such as Warning Category, Type or Rank? This can be quite useful to review which Revit Warnings are important to your company.  Just click on the column header to sort.

You can learn how to both setup and deploy company standards that relate to this important model health metric within our online help topic: Deploying Warning Standards. This time of year, it’s JOY TO THE WORLD.......or maybe it should be DEPLOY TO THE WORLD.

This post is part of a series of real questions posed to our Support team and our solutions. View more
