Revit 2017 Combine Parameters in Schedules  You can combine parameters of the type(s) that display in that part of a schedule.  The values for the combined parameters will display in the same cell separated by a slash or other separator.  Note: Because combined parameters are not assigned to a category, they cannot be reused.  If you want to move the calculated value to a different cell, you must re-enter it.  1. Click Manage tabSettings PanelPanel Schedule Templates  Edit a Template.  2. In the Edit a Template dialog, select a template type and click Open.  3. Select a cell and click  Combine Parameters.  4. You add and remove parameters by moving them between the panes:      •Highlight a parameter in the Panel schedule parameters pane and click  Add Parameter to move it into the Combined parameter pane.       •Highlight a parameter in the Combined parameters pane and click  Remove Parameter to move it into the Panel schedule parameters pane.  5.Optionally, you can add a prefix, suffix, or sample value to the parameter.  The sample value is displayed in the Preview so that you can edit as needed before closing ...

In 2016 Autodesk released updates to Parameters in Revit. I created this video with basic examples of how you can use these types of parameters to your advantage. Use these basic examples and discuss and plan other usages to compliment your current in-house workflows. Keep in mind that over constraining a model can be detrimental or have a negative effect on your projects. Coordinate with everyone on the team or on the project how these work and when you should apply them to your projects. Parameters 2.0 - (part 1) Reporting parameters are values driven by dimensions or geometric conditions. (Part 2 coming soon):  Global parameters are specific to a single project file but are not assigned to categories like a project parameter.

In addition to Revit family parameters, project parameters and shared parameters, Autodesk added Global Parameters as part of 2016 R2. Global Parameters are specific to a single project file, but are not assigned to categories. Global parameters can be simple values, values derived from equations, or values taken from the model using other global parameters. Use global parameters to drive and report values. A global parameter can assign the same value to multiple non-adjacent dimensions. You can also set the position of one element by the size of another element. If you missed it, join us for this special parametric design session on Global Parameters to learn more.
