Dynamo Workflow to change Sheet Initials and Name Parameters

Dynamo Workflow: Change your sheet parameters with one click.


If you’ve submitted drawings using┬áRevit sheets in the past, you’ve undoubtedly run into the issue where some of your “Checked by” and “Designed by” parameters say “Author”. As far as I know, there is no easy way to change them all globally from within Revit.

I’ve created a simply Dynamo Workflow that will change all of these sheet parameters in a batch. This is a great Workflow for beginners because it is so simple and easy to follow and dissect.

In the future, I will further breakdown the workflow to help beginners understand exactly what Dynamo is doing when this Workflow is run.

    I want to take your concept one step further, And its kicking my butt! brand new to dynamo. Your post was the inspiration to get started. I would like to filiter the “Approved By” to contain “Approver”
    Simply, if its already been filled out, I don’t want the dynamo script to change whats already there. but if the default value is there, proceed.
    Any insights?
