Door Hardware Schedule

This is more of a general question. I know there's a process to make a door schedule. I am now making a schedule for hardware sets and I'm trying to find the best way to organize the information. Is there a way to create a hardware schedule in the same way you create a door schedule or have you been using text to note the components of each hardware set?

There is no actual "hardware" object, so there would not be a schedule
category devoted to this. You can simply add a door schedule that lists the
desired hardware fields. This could be a separate door schedule sorted and
grouped by hardware, or you can add the fields to your normal door schedule.
Any fields that are not included out-of-the-box, you can add using shared
parameters. To create hardware "sets" create a "KEY" schedule. On the first
screen when creating the schedule, choose Doors for category and then choose
Schedule Keys. Name it some thing appropriate like "Hardware Set." When you
click OK, you will be presented with the fields that can be included in your
key schedule. There are only a few in the out-of-the-box offering, so again,
consider custom shared parameters (or project parameters) if necessary.

One you have the schedule use the New button on the Options Bar to add rows
to the schedule. Fill in the data. In this case, you will create a new row
for each unique hardware set giving it a unique designation in the key name
column. Then return to your door schedule (if desired) and add the fields
there. The Hardware Set field is your key field. Choose one of your keys
from the pop-up menu and the others fill in automatically. Very cool.

I have attached some images. Enjoy.
