    room tag with occupancy info (2019)

    wondering if anyone has created a room tag that shows the occupancy info i.e. occupancy group, occupancy load factor(area per occupant), occupant load calculated?

    Nope, but I think that's just a few Shared Parameters to add to your tag and rooms

    Unless you want to use Dynamo or an App (or a schedule where you manually translate them), you are better off with a tag that has Name and Number, and then a schedule (that you put on the sheet) with all the Occupancy Calcs. Reason being then that schedule can actually DO all the occupancy calcs for you. (Take the OLF, apply it to the SF, come up with OCC, round accordingly, generate plumbing fixture requirements based on that, and so on).

    As of 2017 or 2018, you can actually build all those calculations in to the TAG itself, but thats completely stupid because then its not in the model itself.

    Please be more specific. Its not clear what you are asking. The project file does not contain any model elements yet and no custom room tag. I see some schedules showing some occupancy-related information.

    Relatively new to Revit. Regarding that you think its inappropriate to calculate occupant load in a tag as its "...not in the model itself..." Is not the schedule also 'outside' of the model? Thanks.

    I dont think its *inappropriate,* i just think it wont work NEARLY as well. The schedule is MUCH better.

    The biggest problem with putting your calculations in the Tag is the that's where they remain - in the Individual Tag.
    You can't do anything else with them.
    If you have the information in a Schedule, you can do things with that information in aggregate - calculate totals, for example.
    There are some games you have to play to use a calculated value, but it it possible.
    If the calculation is in the Tag, you have no hope of using it in conjunction with another Room or Area.

    You can, however, have it in both provided any changes to one you make in the other. For a straight Area/Occupant Load Factor maybe this isn't a big deal (although you do have to decide how you're going to deal with rounding and how to deal with fixed seating but that's true regardless of the route you take) but for other calculations, like plumbing, you quite literally can't do it in the tag.
