Edit Revit Key Schedule Data with Ideate BIMLink

Before editing Revit Key Schedule data with Ideate BIMLink, it is important to understand that Key Schedule data varies from regular schedule data in a few important ways.  Key Schedules automatically create a project-specific unique parameter that cannot be shared across categories OR across linked files.  For this reason Key Schedules cannot support the Save Revit Link and Load Revit Link functions, nor do they support the ability to include linked Revit file data.  Lastly, Key Schedule data is inherently instance-based data, so a Key-base link cannot be converted into a type-based link.

  1.  Create Revit Key Schedules with Ideate BIMLink within Revit.
  2.  Launch Ideate BIMLink and select the From Revit Schedule... button on the main dialog
  3. The list within the Schedule area will show any Schedule or Key Schedules. Key Schedules, by their nature are Instance-based, so the Type Link radio button will be unavailable.  Select Next > at the bottom of the New Links from Schedule dialog.
