I am Copy/Monitoring air terminals and it seems that the Type of air terminal (size) is in constant flux which means when I perform a Coordination Review I get many (80 or 90) Rule messages stating "Types of fixtures are not equivalent," which is awesome. Here's the problem, I would expect an Action for modifying the rule breaker family type to match the linked file. Alas, this doesn't appear to be possible. This is kind of a bummer because I don't want to change each one individually because that would be onerous at this phase of the project and I also don't want to break the monitoring and batch copy again. Is there any other solution that I am missing?
I was going to use dblink but the exported coordination review report doesn't separate the ID of the element into a separate column from the type making it extremely difficult to sort in Excel. But I digress.....
After some testing, I agree that having an option to map or specify the changed types could be helpful.
