Adding Shared parameters to project all at once

I have created about 30 shared parameters to be added to all  mechanical equipment families I have to make things consitent across all my project

 

The problem is I need to manually add them one by one to my families...is there a way to add them all at once...unfortunately Ctrl+Shift+Click doesn't work here

 

Cheers,

M

There's a really handy (and free) Revit add-on called Revit SP Writer that can bind multiple parameters to families in one click. I've separated my shared parameters into multiple files based on the family type to help organize them.

Hmm that's odd, there should be an option in Excel to pick a group for a new parameter:
