How to: Door & Window Schedules using the Interactive Schedule

Date: Tuesday, October 25, 2011

Introduction & Background to the Interactive Schedule
ArchiCAD’s Interactive Schedule function allows you to automatically generate  schedules. Unlike simple lists created with the commands of the Document > Schedules and Lists menu, the Interactive Schedule not only displays quantities and other parameters - you can actually edit it. This makes it possible to notice and correct inconsistencies resulting from a data entry error or from the merging of the work of several people on different parts of the same project.
schedule exampleFor example, the schedule may allow you to detect that all but one of the thirty or forty doors placed in your building have the same height and width. You can then select this door directly from the schedule and check whether there is a reason for this inconsistency. If you find that this was a mistake, then you can correct the setting in the schedule and automatically update the door in all views.
Similarly, it’s easy to double-check how many of the doors open to the right or the left. There are two categories of Interactive Schedules:

  • Element Lists show characteristics of simple construction elements.
  • Component Lists are optimized to list information about each component of composite elements (composite walls, slabs, roofs and/or multi-component profile elements

To make a door or window schedule you would use the Element List . Go to Navigator > Project Map > scroll down list to Schedules > Element > select Door List or Window List
