Learn how this time saving, headache-free solution that will enable you to focus on what you do best – designing and building structures. And, attend our webinar on October 26 at 10amPT to see Schedules in action.
The Value of Schedule Support Inside UNIFI
Schedules are data-centric views of a BIM model and are critical to a firm’s documentation workflow. The manner in which firms create and deploy schedules is similar to how content is managed, since schedules are the tool for the reporting of quantities and attributes of content.
UNIFI built our Schedules feature based upon input from our user community and we focused on what mattered most to our users – ease of use, efficiency and business value:
Customers will now enjoy storing all of their schedules in the cloud, ensuring they have access to them anywhere, anytime, on any machine. One customer we recently spoke with has over 400 schedules already planned to utilize this new feature and give their users access.
Schedules support is a great addition to UNIFI’s already supported Revit element types of Families, System Families, Drafting Views and Groups.
How Does this Feature Work
Schedules can be added to UNIFI by opening a project and then opening the ‘Batch Export’ dialog. Schedules will appear there as a parent type and expanding this will reveal all of the available schedules. Choose the schedules you want to store in UNIFI and click “Export”. This will queue them up in UNIFI for upload – just like any other element, you can choose your tags and libraries before uploading and following upload they follow the same approval process that you’re familiar with already.
In Browse mode, schedules will appear as their own folder after choosing a library. Schedules will also appear in your search results if your search term matches against tags, the category of the schedule and of course, the name. You may also apply a filter for ‘Schedules’. Inserting schedules works like other elements; simply click ‘Insert’ to load into your project. To assist you in making a selection, a view of the column headers is even conveniently located on the Details page.
Schedules are managed like every other element type. Tagging, renaming, library management, custom preview images, revisions, etc. are all handled the same way.
UNIFI’s new Schedules capabilities provide even greater value to leading architectural, engineering, construction firms who use UNIFI to create and manage their building content.
