    Equipment Accessories - Anyone have an elegant solution to adding them to schedules?

    Does anyone have a solution for adding equipment (mainly fan) accessories to their schedules or schedule sheets? Something like this:

    This is how I've done notes at the bottom of a schedule. There are no formatting options using this method, and no way to get columns like you've shown in your example schedule. Additionally, any calculations of totals that you may set under the schedule formatting sub-tab will show up and cause text wrapping. I don't consider this an issue, but I avoid calculated totals on sheets.


    1. Create a multi-line text project parameter (let's call SN_FAN ACCESSORIES) for your schedule and associate it with Project Information.
    2. Next open the schedule fields dialog, select Project Information from the dropdown under "Select fields from:", and then add SN_FAN ACCESSORIES to the schedule.
    3. Next, go to the Sorting/Grouping sub-tab, and for the first level of sorting/grouping set the parameter to SN_FAN ACCESSORIES, tick the Footer option, and set the footer display to be "Title and totals"
    4. Lastly, go to the Formatting sub-tab and make SN_FAN ACCESSORIES a hidden parameter.


    You should be good to go. One other thing to note is that only the first line of your multi-line text parameter will show up in schedule view itself, but all the lines will appear when you place the schedule on a sheet.

    Thanks for the response. I ended up creating a key schedule for the accessories list and the a shared text parameter in the family called Fan_Accessories. They are not linked. Click image for larger version.
