When importing the models into BIMWorkplace, the structure of the “Normal” data table presents all existing elements in a hierarchical structure of category, family and type and the element count column.
The grouping allows the user to create, in a personalized way, other information organization structures based on the desired objective, whether for quantitative extraction, planning, data analysis, filling in codes, etc.
To create a custom group follow the steps below:
1 – Click on the button Group by, and go to the tab to customize the group.
2 – Assign a name to the group, then choose the desired properties from the drop-down and organize them in the sequence in which the information will be grouped.
3 – Finally, choose which columns of data you want to insert in the table and order them in the ideal sequence for the workflow.
The added columns, with numeric values, can receive mathematical conditions, just select the desired option (sum, average, largest number, smallest number and count). When finishing the customization of the new group, click on Apply to complete the creation of the group.
4 – Select the new group from the Structure drop-down menu, and then click the button Update Schedule, to calculate the new data organization structure.
Note that after calculating the new group, the table will show the new structure organized as selected at creation.
5 – To change the organization of data in the group, select the group and click Edit Group.
6 – To delete the group, click on the button Delete Group, in the menu and confirm its removal. If there are views recorded with the current group, it will not be possible to delete them, the user must first delete the associated view.
Now, your team can create tables and handle data in a common and online environment, allowing all team members to interact on the same data.
