    [All Verticals] - calculated values in color scheme

    Applies to: - All Verticals

    New Feature / Problem:
    For system families such as rooms and spaces I can calculate a value in a schedule using project or shared parameters. However, since there is a reason I calculated that value, I would then like to use that value. Color schemes would be a good start.

    Why do you need this Feature / Why is it a Problem:
    Checking large amounts of data is a lot easier if they are represented graphically (green is good, red is bad), especially with geometrical components (where is the object, how large is it, what are its relations with neighbouring objects) visible.

    Workflow:
    Giving a calculated value the same characteristics as a project parameter would solve the issue. Reversely, assigning a calculated value to a project parameter would work as well.

    Benefits:
    Graphical representation of data generated from input data.

    A lot of these things are covered by using filters. But it would be nice to be able to have easier ways of doing this. Setting up proper filters can be difficult and misty to accomplish

      You can filter for a calculated value? That I did not know.

        Well, now you guys are talking about two different things. You can filter a schedule for a calculated value, but you cannot set up a color scheme by a calculated value. You can set up the color scheme by ranges of numeric parameters such as Area, Perimeter, etc, but not by calculated values, hence the reason for this wish.

          Nope, you can't. My bad, sorry...

          See the above. I as under the (false) impression one could setup a filter for calculated values and use that as a colored override but you can't.

          So, more :coffee: for me, carry on... :hide:

            do we get to subtract rep points? you've got plenty to spare anyway
            but adding the possibility to filter for calc values would work for me as well.

              LOL, yeah you can... Just "Disapprove" when adding Rep.
