Comment by Kenya Cazeau

hello everyone and welcome back to my tutorial and today we will talk about some serious topic so we will talk about schedules and how we can calculate some not ordinary numbers let's say you want to calculate for example your room but - for example 0.1% so how you can do that without for example Excel or without typing by manually I will show you today let's start it for this tutorial I will open some sample project and will use them for to show you something and you it in schedule actually this tutorial it's more like introducing to the schedule because the second tutorial will be more for advanced users so let's go for example let's say we have here the room schedules as you can see right here let's go inside this room schedule it's opening now and as you can see we already have some schedules here by square meter area and this is this is okay so this is your rate so to define let's make some changes here so to mix to create create here some changes we should go to inside this project right here the fields and edit let's go here and before we will create some new changes I will show you some main things how to create your schedule really cool right in Excel for example for example I want make the total numbers here right so what I'm gonna do I'm going to the sorcerer and sorting and grouping and I will find it here the grand total so let's use the grand total and now we're a bit asking us the wooded type grand total b1 Titan Titan accounts and totals for example so yes I want side so I want count and I want total in one line so let's say okay and you will see now changes grand total it's 33 so 33 type of the rooms battle as you already see I want make the grand total of my area so way is it so how I can do that actually pretty easy but when I was the student I cannot find it waste waste locating so you should go for example to the formatting here you should find the area and here under arrow think you'll find here no conclusion you should change to the calculate total so change to the calculator so go OK and you will find no total of your square meters area so really easy but yeah it's hard to find ways ways dislocated so and here you do you can do everything else like coordination you can fill it the format type the format for example you want make to 0 after after your number let's say like 1600 8.20 let's change it and we can change the decimals for example to do some other thing and we can make like some more digits supply training ok square meters and let's change it for example 1 decimal place to this smell let's say 1 so as you can see it will be like this formatting or it will be like equal to 10 or we can can get like this result so let's do it and as you can see we have two two numbers after dot so maybe sometimes you need that that's why I'm concentrating here or you're on this finger ok so let's find some other thing what we can do here in right in the shadows properties let's say for example you have your area number or as you can see here and you want create something like area with some deficients like 0.8 0.7 let's say you want to do that I don't know for example for your finishing right so what you can do you can first you should create your parameter and let's write like area area and let's write Q later efficient so and it will be the number okay yes and under the formula I will find my area let's find my area here so here is my area and let's equal let's apply it to the 0.8 let's let's do it also it's not like this it's like this the number I will change to the area and now I will change to the dot it's both my wrong so what you should go to what you should do because I'm using down for more area I should change the type to the area and applying to the 0.88 let's say okay and let's put it more close to the area so now it will be around here let's say okay and now you can see this is my real area this is my area with some with some coefficients so you can do easily is right now in the schedule you know need work in your arrived it now you know need change your room you can create it right in your shadow okay let's go more deeper let's say your I don't know your tutor your clients your customer whatever they think like okay I not understand so is it is it big square meters area or no can you make for example like percentage from a whole of the area and you will think how you can do that actually you can do it really easy again will go into the parameters we changing here to the percentage and here we write like percent okay so and here you can see this is grand total area so now they are a bit asking us from what we want get the present presentation of our area from area a or from area Q so I will use the real area by grand total let's say okay let's say okay and now you can see for example this there is only 1% of my area but for example this Lobby is 18% from the my area this is a really cool and as you can see we didn't get a whole percentage of our area we can do the same thing we go we should go to the formatting we find here the percentage and we will find here that calculate the total so and as you can see this is hundred percent so again we can go back to the formatting we can go here for example percentage field format use use our own so I check this one and here change for example to the two decimal places okay okay and now you can see exactly how many so this is not 18 actually this is 1717 dot 70 so for the small building it's nothing but for the really high high or the large building this is really important so let's say I'll show you one more thing now I will show you how your schedule can work on you so how you can for example make some changes or how you can check your work by schedule yeah it's possible so let's go back to them have a option and here you will find by the form I think again I will find my queue area now I will go to the technician format and as you can see we get some new formatting here so it's like a formula but it's not let's say our field queue area test we will say not equal or greater than five square meter and let's say back color will be red one I want red one here let's say okay let's say okay let's okay Dada so if your queue area more than five square meter now it's in the shadow will be a red color by this way you can make some rules in your project and you make for example and you can check something for example with your rooms with your materials with your numbers of the stairs or for example number for those rooms or the other family so you can check something in by schedules let's go back again and for example for the queue okay you understand how to do that but if for example for the area we can create then you think like coordination okay so let's make between all less than less than five normal X say less than ten or no will make less than or equal let's do it no sorry let's make between this is really nice one between ten and between hundred so you can understand now we should get something between that and we will make the green one like this ways okay and you can see so this is really what we want so by this way you can create more complex schedule you can cr

a good thing to have in a project is a cover sheet with a constantly updating time date stamp so that you can always have a reference to the submittals publishing date and time how can that be done here's a quick video demo let's duplicate an a0 title block edit its family we will be adding a text note at first stating that this is a cover sheet then we'll be adding that label in the label we'll be looking for the timestamp parameter and then we will add it to the label close the label and fix its size let's now save the family and a different name cover sheet title block for example and let's load it into the project we will create the cover sheet based on the new title block and rename it accordingly and here we go the sheet will have its time and date updated automatically zoom in zoom out zoom in zoom out and it's being updated magic Cheers


Thanks Martin your participation is very much appreciated
