    Door Schedule in MEP?

    I need to produce a door schedule that won't confuse my engineers, in other words it must have the same columns and information that the AutoCAD one used to have.
    What I need to know is:
    Is there a built-in parameter in the doors family for "swings open left to right" or "right to left" and what is the parameter name?
    Is there a built-in parameter in the doors family for which room it leads into and what is the parameter name?

    I have a work-around in mind, but then I can't use the cute flip arrows for changing the swing of the door as far as I know. I'd have to make the doors static. Openinig either "Swings/slides open left to right" and Swings/slides open right to left" and include these as parameters in the family to be able to schedule them.
    The room name I'd have to also make as a 'schedulable' parameter too if no such function exists.

    Ciao for now.

    No, or at least it´s not available without utilizing the API - But Feio made a cool add-in which does just that:

    It´s not a visible parameter in the family, but when you create a schedule, and under "Select available fields from" select "To Room" or "From Room" you´ll get a lot of parameters to include in the schedule.

    You might wanna read this thread first though:

    Thanks so much! Oddly enough, I came accross that thread before I posted this question and read through it.
    I'll try the "To Room" & "From Room" adding in thing - thank you!
    I'll also have a look at that add-in...if IT will allow it.

    Thank you again for the advise!
