Manually edit transmittal date?


I'm in Archicad 25. Transmittal sets show the date when you close the set. I need to show a future date in the title block but there's not an obvious way to override the date. This seems like a common need, most people want to get their sets done before the deadline! Any ideas how to do this? Thanks.

I don't know if there is a solution to your problem.


But I am curious.

Does it matter if the transmittal date is before your deadline?

The transmittal date is the date that you have completed that part of the project.

I can't see why you would want to fake the date - that defeats the purpose of having an automated system?

My solution is to create a new Date item in the Transmittal scheme and use that as the official date.

Was going to suggest the same thing! This is the best solution, in my opinion.
