Revit offered very limited ability to customize the Revision Schedule. I received an email from blog reader Jayant if there is a way to work around this limitation.
how to add scheduled fields in revision properties . because in out standard sheet format we have drawn by, chk by, and app. by fields , so i am not able to add fields other than 6 fileds, pl. help me ,or can i rename issue to field ?
There are only 6 fields available to choose from in the Revision Properties box. I have written a blog post before on how to take advantage of it to Customize the Revision Number. To take it one step further, instead of using these fields as it is intended, we can also rename these fields to fit your project need.
With your Titleblock family opened, go to Project Browser, expand the Views > Schedules > select Revision Schedule.
Next go to Properties > Other > click the Edit button next to Formatting.
Select the field you want to rename, input a new name in the Heading box. (In this example, I selected the Revision Description field and changed it to Drawn By.) Click OK when you are done.
Now, save the family and load it back to your Project file.
Edit Revision in the Project
Open up the Revisions, go to the Description column and type in the data you wanted to appear in the Drawn by column. Click OK when you are done.
The Revision Schedule are now customized! Simple!
