Here’s the best workaround with the current features that exist in the software:
Set the default to the option you will use on most panels in the project.
In the other panels, change the circuit description to the other value. Then use the “Move Circuits” command. Use the “Copy” button in that dialog to copy the description to the other circuits. When you copy, the selected circuit will increment down one each time. You can press the button multiple times to fill in multiple circuits.
In circuiting callouts, allow the dash to be replaced by a custom string.
Example: Default circuiting callout is L1A-1,3,5. Allow us to make it say L1A: 1,3,5 or L1A CKT 1,3,5.8 votes
It would be nice if we could define a heat pump as a piece of equipment but have a second piece of equipment like a ductless split or fan coil either as a secondary part of that equipment that can be placed on a separate drawing (or a different part of the same drawing) or if we could link them in some way. The goal would be that once you circuit the heat pump, the same circuit would automatically be assigned to the fan coil which may or may not have an additional load. Then when drawing a homerun from the fan coil, there could be an asterisk or a note saying to "circuit via associated heat pump".

Provide a way to run loads and layout Ductwork and Air terminals within Revit?1 vote
When doing room definitions for load calculations there are some properties that pertain to many or all other rooms in the building like "ceiling height" and the "roof properties."
I think it would be useful to have a command like match wall properties for the room properties so I can set up the roof (which almost always applies to the whole building), ceiling height, ventilation requirements, etc. and copy from one room to any others that have the same properties.2 votes
This command would be invoked from the panel circuiting dialog box, and would highlight all circuits fed from a particular panel.1 vote
Provide a graphic for windows/glass located on walls so you can see easily and quickly figure out which windows have been entered into the load calculation.
Additional idea: Make it a dynamic block so that when you change the width (using a grip) you can stretch the window to change the actual width. The width x height would display above this graphic.2 votes
This idea is one we’ve had for probably 15 years. It would be really cool to add, but it has never quite made it to the top of the list of things to do.
Provide an option for Room Names analogous to the "Conduit location" Option. Also consider other customization:
-Custom Room prefix - e.g. RM
-Option to include/exclude Name - e.g., RM 120
-Option to include/exclude Number - e.g., RM FIRE RISER
Room Names Location:
->Start of Circuit Description
->End of Circuit Description
Currently the room names always go at the end, just like OOTB Revit. Having the option to put the room at the start would allow for better scheduling for when the intent is for circuits to be organized by room, like so:
When working at a smaller scale (ie. 1/8th"), make it so the duct center lines always appear the same size. The duct center lines are drafting tools only and do not appear on the drawing therefore having them adjust with the DIMSCALE is not neccesary. When the DIMSCALE is changed to 96 or higher, drafting in tight spaces can be difficult when the duct centerlines are large because the arrows are too large to work with and tend to overlap others.1 vote
It would be a huge time saver to be able to Export a project electrical equipment schedule into excel for quick data entry and then import back into DM/Autocad. Entering a large list of kitchen equipment can be tedious. Being able to do this in excel would be quicker. The import/export functionality could be similar to how DM handles the layers for the standards database. Alternatively, listing the equipment as a table with aligned rows/columns would be equally efficient.1 vote
When the same diffusers are located in the same room, it would be nice if there was an option to label one diffuser and then (TYP and then the quantity it applies to) as opposed to labeling each individual grille/diffuser. This would help clean up the drawings quite a bit from unneeded notations.2 votes
In the diffuser tag, add a spot to list the diffuser neck size (so the duct runout doesn't need to be labeled and will clean the drawings up). It would be nice if one diffuser tag can be used for various diffuser neck sizes, for instance, a CD-1 is more of a description of the diffuser type and model and a pull down with diffuser neck size would be input, then the schedule can list CD-1 with a line for quantity of each diffuser size. This would make creating a master schedule much simpler.2 votes
Be able to display feeder callouts with spaces after commas, instead of having all the wire sizes right next to each other.

Create a ventilation schedule that corresponds to what is required by the IMC.1 vote
I do a lot of remodel work and it would be nice to be able to fill out a panel schedule with existing load data from a hard copy of an existing panel schedule without have to actually put the loads in the model and then circuiting them.6 votes
I won’t say never, but this feature would be quite difficult currently. We let Revit handle all the loads in the project. It really needs to be handled by Autodesk directly rather than by us.
A copy function for identical floor plans in multi-level buildings would be a time saving idea to speed up drawing.
So that when I am working on a multilevel building all I would have to do is copy the floor plan from one identical level and placing it on the other matching levels then just rename the panels and circuit names, without duplicating the copied information on the original panels. Breaking its connection with the parent panel and giving a notification to reassign panel names.4 votes
In the diffuser definition dialog box, designate whether it is a 1W, 2W, 3W or 4W diffuser, then attach that number of arrows. When placing the diffuser, allow the user to rotate the diffuser to align the appropriate air flow direction.2 votes
Allow for equipment schedules to be created by use, such as chiller, air handlers, pumps, etc. The schedule would be populated with equipment that is drawn by DM equipment command3 votes
The service ground does not get installed in the conduit with the service entrance conductors, so why is it shown just like all the other feeders where the equipment grounding conductor is installed with the feeder conductors. If you want the feature to show the GEC size, show it in a different column and show the feeder with no ground listed with the feeder conductors so its clear it is not in the conduit.4 votes
