Common Groups Dialog Box Features

The Select Group button on project and master schedule dialog boxes opens the Schedule Groups dialog box. This dialog box is used to create and modify schedule groups. The specific labels will vary based upon the type of schedule you are modifying, but the functionality is the same for all types.

Groups allow you to organize the records in your schedule.

When you start a project, all of the entries from a single group can be copied to the project. Copying a group is helpful when you have a common type of project with similar schedules. You can set up the schedule once in the master as a group, then reuse it in new projects.

While working on a project, you can import entries from a group into the project. You can create multiple groups for different types of schedule entries or different manufacturers. The organization of the groups makes it easier to find the record you want to import.

In a project, groups are used to organize the devices. Each group has a separate schedule that can be inserted on the drawing. The layout of each schedule can be different for each group.
