History

The first roadmap was created on October 2016 and the purpose was to create a plan of which feature will be added and when. The roadmap was compiled from various sources. One major source of new features or ‘wishes’ are from the Revit Ideas website.

Once the plan was in place the idea is then to share the plan to the users of Revit via a Revit Roadmap Blog entry.

Revit Ideas forum

The purpose of the Revit Ideas forum is for users of Revit to add an idea that might improve Revit. This new feature gets added to the forum and then other users can vote for this and other ideas. The Ideas that are the most voted for, will then go through a validation process to then be added to the Roadmap.

So, if you have an Idea of something that might improve Revit, go to the website and firstly search for similar ideas. If there are, then go vote for that idea. If the are not a similar ideas create a new idea and get others to vote for your idea.
