    Tags and phasing

    My company's starting to work on more projects with multiple phases and I'm wondering if there's a way to make pipe/duct/equipment tags automatically adjust based on the view phase and the phase the element was created. We already have the typical filters and overrides for the elements to show up in the correct way.

    For instance:

    1. Existing pipe, prefix "ETR" shows up on phase 1 demo and new plan
    2. Demolished in phase 2, prefix "REX" shows up in phase 2 demo.
    3. View filter hides pipe in phase 2 new and subsequent phases.

    And:

    1. Pipe created in phase 1, no prefix.
    2. The pipe shows up with prefix "ETR" in phase 2.

    I'm hoping I can create some sort of shared parameter like "if(demo phase property = active view phase, "REX", if(pipe phase created<= active view phase, "ETR"))"

    I'm guessing there's no way, but thought I'd ask.

    Not sure you can get a tag to read view phase and element phase. I'd probably just get Dynamo to write the complete text value including prefix, based on filtered selections and get the tag to display that.

    The attached is just combining View Phase, Element ID & Element Phase Created to write to the Comments parameter, which is read by a simple text tag. Is Revit 2018 & Dynamo 2.0.2
