Track changes in large projects

This process describes a method for tracking changes in large projects with numerous changes to multiple openings between revisions. In smaller projects with fewer changes, the RFI process or a simple email to the ASSA ABLOY consultant is the appropriate approach. 

This process can be repeated in each additional analysis. 

Before Analyzing the project, add a text-based project door parameter in Revit®.
