As such, Xrev Transmit will not automatically auto-increment revisions.   Simply because we believed this approach does not represent a good workflow.  Typically when adding new revisions to sheets you should either be clouding the specific changes and tagging them, or checking a specific milestone issue to show on the sheet through the sheet instance properties.

Revit Limitations

Currently the Revit Prior to Revit 2022,  revision sequencing is was limited to alphabetic or numeric.  Therefore alphanumeric numbering sequences such as P1, P2, P3 or C1, C2, C3 are were not achievable without workarounds.


  • Using the Issued By field and mapping your revision sequence to this.  Using this method you won't be able to get auto-incrementing of revisions or do sheet specific number sequencing.
  • Add a prefix to the Revision label in the titleblock and then use the standard number sequence from Revit.  With this method the revision schedule is unable to show the prefix.
  • Use a custom "text" shared parameter added to the sheet category.  Using this method you won't get automated incrementing or be able to use the automated Revit Revision Schedules.

Hopefully in a future release Autodesk add capabilities for more custom number sequences or make the sequencing accessible through the Revit API.

Another limitation is the lack of ability to have a revision schedule be broken into multiple parts like all other Revit Schedules.  As such you are limited to one revision schedule with a single group of rows.


  1. Open/Edit your titleblock family or begin a new family.
  2. If you don't already have a Revision Schedule in your Project Browser, add one by going to the View tab, Create panel and choose Revision Schedule.
  3. Add the required fields you need to display, but ensure you include the "Revision Sequence" and sort by this, as this will ensure you schedule correctly sorts when using both alphabetic and numeric numbering sequences.
  4. Format the Schedule using standard scheduling tools to have it appear how you like.
  5. Hide the Revision Sequence column by right clicking on it and choosing Hide.
  6. Place the Revision Schedule on the sheet by dragging it from the Project Browser into the view.
  7. Go to the Home tab, Text panel and choose label and place it somewhere.
  8. Add the "Current Revision" parameter to the Label Parameter List
  9. Choose OK
  10. You have now setup your titleblock to correctly use the Revit Revisioning System.
