The topic of Revit parameters never gets old. Whether you have questions about how to effectively use them or want a refresher of the positives and negatives, this one-hour high-level webinar is for you. For a deeper dive, watch the recordings of Parameter Primer Part 1 and Parameter Primer Part 2 or review our online Help topic on Instance vs. Type links.

The reason parameters are such an interesting and challenging topic is because there are so many of them! 

Project - System - Instance - Type - Shared - Global - Combined - Family - Reporting - Schedule Keys  

Understanding the situations in which to use one parameter over another can be quite challenging.

In this webinar, we:

  1. Discussed and demonstrated Revit parameter creation methods:
    • Key schedule changes
    • Global parameters
  2. Polled attendees. See how you compare to your peers on the answers to:
    • How are you currently using global parameters?
    • What is your biggest parameter management challenge?
    • How often do you create parameters?
  3. Shared insight on:
    • Recent changes to Revit parameters
    • Strategies to working with parameters across Revit versions
    • Shifting terms in Revit that cause confusion
    • Shared parameters that don’t behave as expected
