Add Design Option Combinations to Schedule Criteria

Kevin Cwalina

Currently, we can add criteria for Design Option Status, Design Option Missing, and Design Option Set, but there is no Criteria for the Combinations. We have started using a Current Design Combination for the current design that shows up in our drawing set and would like to be able to use that same Combination in our schedules.


The workaround at the moment is to add several Design Option Status Criteria to the schedule to get it to work, but that leaves room for error down the road. As the Combination is updated, we will have to remember to update the schedules manually.

A Schedule will only list elements visible in the Design Option Combination that stored in the View - same behaviour as Renovation. Therefore, you can save many views from 1 Schedule, all with different content based on the Combination saved in that view.


In your example, I'd recommend storing a View with the Combination you need, to make sure the correct elements are being listed.
