Exercise: Resolve and Close Issues


In this exercise, it is assumed that some of the issues you created in the previous exercise were resolved in the native files, their issue statuses changed, and the revised files were uploaded to the project.

Task 1: Reviewing Issue Statuses

  2. From the Navigation Bar on the left, click the Issues tool; all the issues are displayed.
  3. Notice the change in various issues, as shown in the figure below.

  1. Click on one of the issues that has the status set to Pending; the flyout panel is displayed with all the issue information.
  2. Review the information in this issue to see why the team could not resolve it, as shown below.

  1. Click on one of the pile caps issues that has the status set to In Review.
  2. From the flyout panel, click on the Revit model in the Placement section to open the model and navigate to the issue in the context of the model, as shown below.

Task 2: Comparing Versions of the Models

  1. With the issue still opened in the context of the model, click the Compare button from the top right, as shown below.
