    Revisions on sheets not scheduling

    This is my revision schedule (ignore the highlighting and orange arrow). All revisions are on sheets, not views. Revisions 0, 1, and CS2 are issued so of course they don't schedule. But we have several sheets with Revision #2 and they do not schedule. Rev #3 and #4 schedule fine. I can't figure out why Rev #2 sheets will not schedule. Any ideas? I tried un issuing Rev CS2 thinking maybe that was hanging up Rev #2 but no difference.

    Bump! AFAICS the rev clouds and tags for all three revisions are identical. Any ideas??

      What do you mean *of course they don't schedule?* The ONLY thing issuing should do is make it do folks can't make more Rev clouds under that rev.

      Can you upload the model and PM me a link?

        hmmm, I didn't know that. I just assumed, since they weren't scheduling that the issued revisions weren't supposed to. So, in reality I have 6 revisions, 5 of which have clouds on sheets, but only two of them are scheduling. The model is on BIM 360. I can't share it with you there (due to contractual issues) but I could download it and upload it to Sharefile for you if you really want to take a look. It's a rather large 125MB model though. I'll get that done in the morning and PM you a link. I'm totally stumped

          Hehehe. 125MB is tiny! I'll take a peek and see what I can see.

            As we talked about over email... Unfortunately, Revit is doing exactly what its built to do in this case. The issue at hand is it isnt scheduleing EVERY revision on EVERY Sheet. To do so, you need to employ something like Dynamo. The good news is, Dynamo get get at that information VERY easily.

            The bad news is, getting that information anywhere useful, is a different story.

            Opinions vary on where somewhere *useful* is. Writing it to a parameter in Dynamo (like concatenating the revisions, and plopping it in a comments field) is actually quite easy. But i want mine in excel, so i can just pivot table, and have it flexible enough to sort it by either revision OR sheet.

            Unfortunately, sorting and organizing Lists is still a bit beyond me in Dynamo. So ill post my current graph here (that i sent Dave) and if someone else wants to clean up the lsit sorting and writing to excel, so all the sheets names, numbers, and revisions are all in differnet columns, im sure then it would be super useful.

                So, giving up for the night. But, i had to work late all weekend anyway, so when i felt like taking a break from my actual work, i played with it for a few minutes here and there. Its REALLY close right now.

                I wanted it formatted such that i could make a REAL (and simple) Pivot Table, that would allow me to either:

                1. Sort by sheet number, and get lists of revisions.
                2. Sort by Revisions, and get lists of sheets issued during that rev.

                The method i was using worked like a charm (overwriting the excel file, keeping the pivot active, etc). But, when i was deciding/learning how to structure the excel export, i was a dumbass. I got each sheets lists of revisions, and each sheets "First revision" went in to the first column as *Revision 1.* I just wasnt thinking about wanting all of REV 1 in one column, and all of REV 2 in another.

                But, for now it works perfectly at generating a sheet list with every revision on every sheet. I just CANT STAND how its formatted. So... IF i can figure out how to alter it and get what i want, ill post back later. Where i circled in Red, is where i screwed up. I pulled a list of revisions per sheet, but never thought to tell it that "All sheets lists must have the same number of items, and if null then leave the cell blank." Thats a bit out of my league tonight. Ill learn something new tomorrow.

                Once i get it, ill post the DYN for you.

                  What's wrong with the formatting?

                  Managing Nulls doesn't seem as hard as Empty lists. I haven't looked closely yet but if you upload the DYN and your sample RVT, I'd be happy to lend a hand in the solution.

                    Sheets that don't have REVISION 1 but have REVISION 2 or REVISION 3 are putting that field in the first revision column. Which is fine if all you want to do is list sheets revisions. But if you want to flip it around in a pivot so you can list sheets based on revision sequence, then I need all of REV 2 in one column. All of REV 3 in one column, and so on.
