    Question Desktop Connector and Linked Revit Model Updates

    Has anybody had success in the Desktop Connector, especially in using it to update Revit models that are Links? As an MEP discipline, I'm wanting this tool to act as a Windows Explorer type of environment where if I drag/drop a new Revit model from the architect, it overwrites the previous file with the new one and updates on our BIM 360 Cloud models. Our current workflow is a Detach > Upload with new suffix, then Reload From within Manage Links of our host model. Trying to streamline this process. Any comments would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

    IMHO, the Desktop Connector is a necessary, but dangerous tool.
    From what I understand, the Desktop Connector link points to the Published versions of models.
    That's fine if you're using the Publish/Consume process, but if you're directly linking "live" models, it can point to the wrong copy.
    We've had several projects where out consultants used the Desktop Connector to link models only to fins out that we hadn't Publish for weeks.
    And it's even worse in 2020. When they took the BIM 360 link out of the Places Bar, people now think that the Connector link is the ONLY way to find a Link.

    Well that's a bit disappointing. Thanks for the comments Dave, I think I will stay back from the edge on this one.
