Reserve Elements by Criteria (Teamwork)

To bring up this dialog box, click the Reserve Elements or Reserve command from one of these locations:
1.
the Project Region; and
2.
Criteria for which elements to reserve, within the Project Region
If you right-clicked the Layout Book, all Layouts and Master Layouts will be listed in the Project Region.
If you right-clicked the View Map, all views of the Public View Map will be listed in the Project Region.
If you right-clicked any Navigator Publisher Set, all views and/or layouts linked to this Publisher Set will be listed in the Project Region.
If you right-clicked any Navigator Group (e.g. Subsets; Stories; Elevations), all elements of that group (e.g. all Layouts in a Subset, as in the image below) are listed in the Project Region.
Any viewpoint
Any view
Any Layout or Master Layout
To expand the project region to include other viewpoints, views or layouts, click Add. This brings up the Choose Project Region dialog box, listing eligible Navigator items to add as the Project Region.
Click one or more of the Navigator items, then click OK to add them to the Project Region.
In the Criteria part of the Reserve Elements dialog box, choose the criteria with which to filter the elements that fall within the Project Region defined at the top of the dialog box.
From the Criteria Set Name pop-up, optionally choose a Built-In Criteria Set:
Note: The predefined “All elements on unlocked and visible layers” Criteria Set is designed to fit a workflow in which the project manager sets up views especially defined for Teamwork usage. You can create several views out of a single viewpoint, then vary the layer states in each view: set the layers of elements that logically belong together to be visible and editable (with the rest of the non-relevant elements locked), then name the view accordingly. For example, a view entitled “Ceiling Plan” might place all the paneling and mechanical structures onto visible and editable layers. This way, the designated user would reserve elements from the Ceiling Plan view by using the “Elements on unlocked and visible layers” criterion.
Public Criteria Sets and My Criteria Sets are listed if you have already defined and saved custom criteria sets.
Alternatively, define a Custom criteria set: use the interface to add new criteria, or to define additional conditions for filtering.
If you reserve elements on a viewpoint (without specifying any Layer-related criteria), the reservation will not take the current Layer Settings into account (this means, for example, that you may reserve elements that are currently hidden).
If you reserve elements in a view (without specifying any Layer-related criteria), the program will take the current Layer Settings into account: only the elements on visible layers will be reserved.
