Project Browser Organisation user-based

Project Browser Organisation user-based

Allow the Project Browser Organisation to be setup by user and not by file so that everyone can have their views showing according to their own preference and requirements for the ongoing task.

Yep! no brainer!

 

good idea.

It would be really great. You could filter the project work done by each user individually. Better than (simple) worksets.

We hate it that every sync resets the browser organization. We want to store the organization schemes in the project file and be shared with everyone, but syncing should not reset the active organization scheme or collapse/uncollapse the PB.

 

We often have users working on details and others on the plans at the same time. Both users will have opened the PB at different nodes. Right now, every syncs messes up their setup.

@dave.c.christy that is exactly my point.

fully agree.

I vote for dave's idea too. Every user should be able to save his own config file, visually arranging stuff in the Project Browser by his own rules, bringing views, schedules of interest under a "work-in-progress" category.

Ok there is something really annoying in the Revit experience : if one user open many views, set on one workset and have deployed all the view trees AND then sync to cental : why the next user inherited all those settings?

You need to set a "Starting View" in your project (and your template)

It's under the Manage Tab, Manage Project panel

Is there a Idea for the Idea station here?  Can I move this to the forums instead?

Loboarch, if Revit enable interface by user, instead by last user sync, that would already solve many things.

@loboarch no please, this is a good idea.Autodesk must solve this..I mean this is piece of cake, it's not hard to implement..

@loboarch, I think the idea is pretty clear. But please do let me know what are the specifics that need introducing still.

 

If it helps, Autodesk already sorted something similar with by introducing the "Unload for Me" feature for workshared RVT links.

I think there is some confusion here.  My question was for another idea that was not clear. it was later clarified and then merged here. When ideas are merged the comment stream comes along with it, so it kind of looks like i am asking a question about this original idea. That is not the case. I understand the request on this idea.  Sorry about any confusion merging might have caused.

oh, I see @loboarch

It is confusing, indeed.

 

Maybe we should post an idea for the Revit Ideas site: the posts should show the original idea where they have been posted initially so that if multiple ideas get merged we know who is commenting what.

I voted for this idea, but I only agree with part of it

 

- When a user changes his/her active organization scheme, I don't want that to affect other people when syncing

- But I do want the organization schemes themselves to be saved in the central file

 

So I don't want users to be able to make organization schemes that only they will see, but users should be able to freely swap their active scheme without affecting other users.

@pieter5 Yes. I don't think it's the OP's intent that there be "hidden" Browser Organization Schemes, but that WHICH scheme is chosen, AND what's expanded/collapsed, would be stored on a per-user basis.

 

The default (for users opening the project for the first time) could come from the last save (as it does now), or the first save (but might not be helpful since no sheets, etc.), or maybe from some customizable "default" (but that would probably just add unnecessary complexity). The main thing is that we'd want users to have their own preferences, but also have some capability for a company-standard "starting point".

great, this would reduce tension in internal project teams and allow users to swap organisation strategies to suit the task.

Great idea.

Great idea!

Still a very good idea. Frustrating to have to close all categories which I do not want do have open, every morning in big projects. Please fix!
