How do I make the plumbing fixture schedule list individual parts of a library object?

I'm working on an interactive schedule, using library objects such as sinks and toilets. All the plumbing fixtures are in a fixtures layer, which is my only criteria for the element type.
The problem is that if I pick a library object such as a handicap accessible stall, it will be listed as one item. What I need to list all the elements: the toilet, the flushometer, 2 grab bars, and the toilet paper holder. I have the same problem with a sink object: I can't list the sink, the faucet, or the countertop as separate items. I need to do this to list all of their individual manufacturers and information.
Is there a work around for this? Do I need to break each object apart into separate objects? Is there a different criteria I should use?

Not one that I can think of.

Yes, every object that you want to schedule will need to be a separate object with the necessary parameters/properties that you want to schedule.

No it has nothing to do with the criteria.
You just need the criteria that will select all of the objects you want to schedule - which is sounds like you already have.
The problem is you need individual objects.

For those specific items I would have separate objects and if I want to keep them together as a unit then I would create Hotlinks for them. Alternative you can add Properties for that particular object with one per item to be able to schedule them.

You could schedule the parameters of the object, so for example if you have a grab bar parameter ticked you can schedule that. Takes a bit of digging around in the object, but you might be able to create perhaps a 2nd schedule for this part for a more in depth list.
